It’s hard to enjoy a long hot shower when the shower doors are cloudy with soap scum! Although it’s probably not a chore you prioritize, those glass shower doors and walls need to be cleaned regularly to prevent them from becoming cloudy and slimy to the touch.
Although shower glass doors may seem difficult to keep clean, here is an easy way to keep them sparkling.
First, remove any build-up of soap scum and water spots. Then, after every shower, rinse down and squeegee the glass, and it will stay clean for months. You’re allowed to share this secret!

Build-up & Soap Scum Cleaning
Over time, shower glass doors can develop soap scum and other mineral build-ups. When this happens, use your favorite all-purpose cleaner like Comet Bathroom Cleaner and spray onto the glass doors. If the scum is heavy, let it sit for several minutes. Then wipe away residue with a cloth, and squeegee the glass again. This method should remove all soap scum. If not, repeat the process.
More Natural Option
If you prefer using more natural ingredients when cleaning your home, you can use this method.
First, spray the walls down with water, then soak the glass using a spray bottle of white vinegar. You’ll want to be sure to get every corner, with special attention to the space where the glass and your tile meet. Let the vinegar sit for at least 10 minutes, longer if the build-up is heavy. Next, take a scrubby sponge, dip it in baking soda, and scrub the glass. The soda is abrasive enough to break up the soap scum but gentle enough not to damage the glass. Once you’ve finished cleaning, rinse the walls with water and dry with a microfiber cloth. If the glass still appears cloudy, repeat the process.
You don’t have to dedicate a whole Saturday to cleaning your shower glass. A squeegee goes a long way when keeping it clean, but even the occasional deep clean won’t take more than an hour! The key is to use a squeegee after every shower, and your bathroom shower glass will stay clean and sparkling.
