Water spots and soap scum build up quickly on a glass, shower door. To make shower doors easy to clean, some homeowners apply Rain-X, which allows water to slide off the door. Doing so can save you time cleaning shower doors.

  1. 1

    Clean your shower door thoroughly. The shower door must be completely clean for the Rain-X to work.

  2. 2

    Use the cloth and thoroughly dry the shower door.

  3. 3

    Apply the first coat of Rain-X, by spraying the Rain-X on the inside of your shower door, and using the cloth to create a thin coat. Overlap each stroke a bit to guarantee you don't miss a spot on the door. The Rain-X creates a haze on your shower door. Let the first coat dry.

  4. 4

    Apply the second coat. Allow the second coat to dry completely. The second coat creates even coverage on your door, and if you accidentally missed a spot, the second coat will cover it.

  5. 5

    Use a dry cloth, and rub the haze on the shower door away. You can add a little water to help get the haze off the door.

Tips and warnings

  • Some shower door coatings can be damaged by Rain-X. Check the instructions before applying this product to your shower door.
