What is the easiest way to clean a frameless glass shower?

There are all kinds of products you can use to clean a glass shower enclosure from very expensive chemicals to cheap household products. The most important thing to remember however is that a few minutes of daily cleaning can save a lot of elbow grease later in the week.

To help keep your glass doors and shower looking top-notch, try to prevent soap and water from staying on it for a long period of time. Once soap starts to dry it becomes much harder to get off.

After you are finished with your shower use a simple squeegee to whisk any water and soap scum off the glass. Then when you are done with your towel, use it to wipe up any excess water.

On a weekly basis, or as often as needed, use a simple solution of half vinegar and half water in a basic spray bottle and cover all the glass in your shower. Let this sit for about 10 minutes than wipe it off with a soft towel.

Cleaning stubborn areas

If you have excess soap scum build up, mold growth or stains, use a mixture of baking soda and vinegar along with a soft bristle brush to clean up the problem. Once you have removed the stains, rinse everything off with water. Then, take soft towel with to wipe the glass clean.

If streaks remain, you can spray some vinegar onto the towel and wipe them away.
