The secret to keeping a glass shower door clean for 6+ Months

Today I want to share a fun little tip for keeping the glass shower door clean for up to 6 months.  Yep, that’s right… this little trick will save you from having to clean those annoying glass shower doors week after week!

I don’t know about you but I HATE soap scum and I HATE cleaning the shower! It seems like those shower doors just attract it like crazy and I’m constantly scrubbing them…. but not anymore!  

I’m a bit embarrassed to show you this (but remember I was pregnant and didn’t want to use any harsh chemicals and then I was recovering from a c-section so the shower went about 4 months without a good cleaning) here is my shower before:  

  I know you’ve all probably seen the dish detergent & Vinegar trick….  

Well, it did not work one little bit!  

So, I used a good ol Magic Eraser (generic works just as well as the name brand), this shower cleaner is my absolute favorite, some water, and a bit of elbow grease. 🙂  

Yeah, I scrubbed it the good ol‘ fashioned way BUT….  

I added a secret ingredient that has kept my shower doors spotless for 4+ months…

It looks like it’s going to keep them spotless for 6+ months.  

Are you ready?  


Yep, the stuff you use for your car windshield, Rain-X water repellent.  Just rub it all over the door after cleaning and it’ll repel the water so soap scum doesn’t form!  

Note: do not use it on your shower floor- you don’t want to risk it becoming slippery.   I hope this trick helps save you time from cleaning the shower so you have time for better things.

I just read about a secret weapon to add to your cleaning kit to help keep glass shower doors free of the mineral buildup which makes them look cloudy. A fabric softener sheet! If you have these around for use in your dryer, you may want to grab a few to add to your bathroom cleaning supplies. Supposedly the sheets contain ingredients in them that are formulated to soften water deposits which is what builds up on your shower door. To try it out, scrub the glass with a brush to loosen deposits and then wipe with the sheet. You get more tips at :

This is just what I needed to know. Thank you so much for sharing this. I will try this later. It's really nice when all the glass doors and mirrors are very well cleaned and clear.

Another great idea is to use fabric softer to clean the soap scum off the glass. This does not even involve elbow grease. Just wipe in on leave a bit then use a sponge and voilaa shower doors are sparkly clean.

Thanks for the post, and we have decided that me and my wife's shower glass door has given us enough grief so we're now looking for a new shower glass door so if anyone has any suggestions of any that they recommend or that they like then that would be great.
