Regularly tackling the shower area should be an established part of anyone’s cleaning routine. On a daily basis, the shower door or curtain is exposed to the full force of water, shower-care products, and soap suds, so it shouldn’t be ignored. Here’s how to clean shower curtains and doors effectively.
How to Clean Shower Doors in 4 Steps
- Every time you enjoy a shower, leave the shower door open afterwards to allow some airflow. This will dry out the showering area quicker and slow down the growth of mould.
- Use a shower glass cleaner to tackle hard water spots and any soap build-up. For stainless steel, plastic, and enamel sections you’ll want a versatile cream cleaner like HANDY ANDY Cream – the thickness prevents the cleaner from simply running off your vertical surfaces.
- Alternatively, you can try a mixture of equal parts white vinegar and water. Leave the solution to sit for five minutes before rinsing off with warm water. If you need a more powerful treatment, then dab vinegar on any problem areas, or stick to a commercial cleaner. Be aware that cleaning shower doors with vinegar can smell very unpleasant, so you’ll want to rinse well and potentially follow up with a scented cleaner.
- Mould can be removed with a standard chlorine or hydrogen peroxide-based cleaner. Most of these cleaners just need to be sprayed on then wiped off with a clean cloth.
