Tips on Cleaning Shower Doors

Updated February 21, 2017

Cleaning the bathroom can be a daunting task, especially if you have a large bathroom. Attention to detail is the key to having a beautiful bathroom and this detail ranges from light fixtures to shower doors. Cleaning shower doors is particularly tricky, at least when it comes to keeping them streak free. There are several tips on cleaning shower doors that will come in handy to keep them sparkling.

Lemon Oil

Lemon oil in combination with a bath cleaner of your choice, works wonders on removing hard water stains from shower doors. Spray the shower doors with lemon oil and allow it to penetrate any stains and dirt. After 10 minutes, use an all-purpose cleaner to aid in cleaning the shower doors. Wipe with a clean damp rag. Make sure you rinse thoroughly and wipe dry to remove all of the lemon oil.


To keep shower doors streak free, use a squeegee on them to remove excess water instead of towel drying. A squeegee removes excess moisture and eliminates water spots that are almost impossible to remove. Use a plastic squeegee instead of a metal one to avoid damaging the shower doors.

White Distilled Vinegar

Spray full-strength white distilled vinegar on the shower doors after using a squeegee on the glass, or before you step in and turn on the water. Doing this helps release the hard water deposits. You can also rub white distilled vinegar on the shower doors with a dampened sponge to remove soap residue.
