Glass showers and glass shower doors have become classics in modern day homes. Luxurious and popular for its ability to make a space appear larger, the glass shower is an interior designer’s favourite. Offering a similar effect but with a touch of mystery is the glass shower door. Regardless of style, we can all agree that glass is simply a chic accent, especially in a bathroom setting.
Although beautiful, glass does require maintenance. At Low’s Glass, Mirror, & Windows, we think it is important for you to upkeep your glass showers and glass shower doors, not just for aesthetic reasons but for longevity as well.
5 Ways to Keep Your Shower Glass Squeaky Clean
Squeegee Your Glass
It is no secret that this is the most effective way to keep your glass shower or door clean, especially when done after each shower. Squeegeeing takes less than a minute, making it the quickest and easiest way to upkeep your glass even when you are on-the-go.
Proper Air Circulation
Having good ventilation in a bathroom is important for a number of reasons. Mildew and mold can easily develop in the shower and you better believe it is very much an eye sore if it grows on your glass shower or door! The key to preventing the growth of mildew and mold requires almost no effort on your part, simply keep the fan on while showering and at least 30 minutes after. This will prevent any lingering heat, wetness, and humidity caused from a nice, warm shower.
The Dryer Sheet Hack
This has to be one of the simplest hacks out there when it comes to maintaining your glass shower or door. This hack is definitely great if you’re a busy body and don’t have time to really scrub at your glass. Grab a dryer sheet, dampen it with water, and use your damp dryer sheet to wipe your glass shower or door. That’s it! Now, it won’t make your glass crystal clear but if done on a weekly basis, it can definitely help in keeping your glass healthy for longer!
Deep Clean with a Magic Eraser
If your shower glass has been neglected for some time now, the above tips might not help your situation. If that’s the case, try a Magic Eraser. Magic Erasers are famous for their ability to deep clean nearly anything, including hard scum or built up minerals. Plus, you can also use the Magic Eraser to liven up your hardware again. Squeaky clean glass and hardware? Yes please!
Deep Clean with Baking Soda
Another great option when it comes to deep cleaning your glass shower is using baking soda. Start by mixing baking soda with a little bit of water to create a paste-like concoction and apply to any glass stains, mildew, or scum with a sponge or cloth.
This tip does require a little more effort compared to the others so be prepared to put in some elbow grease to really clean off any hard-to-remove stains or scum. After a good scrubbing, rinse with warm water. Besides the physical effort needed, this tip is great for those who want to work with items they might already have in their home.
