Glass showers are a staple feature of many contemporary residences; however, their translucent look has a downside. With time, residue from soap and shampoo can cause an unsightly greyish film to form on your shower walls. If your shower is looking a little grimy these days, consider these affordable cleaning tips to give it back its sparkle.
In a large bucket, half a gallon of hot water with two cups of white vinegar and one cup of salt. Soak a sponge or cloth in the solution and vigorously scrub the shower walls, from top to bottom. After giving everything a good rinse, dry the glass with balls of newspaper lightly dampened with white vinegar for optimal shine!
Does the smell of vinegar put you off? Wash your shower walls with a mix of water and liquid dish soap instead, then rinse and polish with a micro-fiber cloth.
If the joints in your shower look moldy, scrub them with an old toothbrush dunked in hot water and bleach. Wait several hours before rinsing with cold water. If the joints still look tainted, consider having them replaced—chances are they’re worn beyond repair.
As you can see, it’s neither difficult nor costly to upkeep a glass shower. All it takes is a little bit of effort!
