How to get rid of water marks on shower glass doors

Updated February 21, 2017

Shower glass doors can create a crisp, elegant appeal in a bathroom. These doors can be cleaned easily, when you know the right products to use. There are several commercial products to clean and get rid of water marks, but these items can be expensive and are not always effective. Instead, make your own shower cleaner that will clean, disinfect and eliminate water spots with ease.

Vinegar

Vinegar is an inexpensive product that will clean, disinfect and remove water marks from shower glass doors. In a spray bottle, mix a solution of two cups water and one cup distilled white vinegar (available at any grocery store). Spray the solution onto the glass door, let it sit for a few minutes, then wipe clean with a cloth or sponge. This will break up any mineral deposits and leave behind a streak-free, sparkling shine. Repeat as necessary to keep shower doors looking their best, and also consider using this solution as an all-purpose shower cleaner for bathtub walls and floors as well.

Dish Detergent

Dish detergent also works well to clean, remove water spots and create a sparking shine on your shower glass doors. In a spray bottle, mix a solution of one cup water and two squirts liquid dish detergent. Spray onto the shower doors, and wipe clean with a damp cloth. Dish detergent is designed to break up grease and grime, making this the perfect bathtub cleaning solution that is safe for doors, walls and even the shower floor.

Alcohol

Alcohol also works effectively to eliminate water marks on shower glass doors. In a spray bottle, mix one cup of water with one cup of isopropyl rubbing alcohol (available at any grocery or chemist). Spray onto the door, let sit for a moment, then wipe clean with a cloth. Repeat as necessary until all water marks are gone, and also consider using this solution as a regular shower cleaner that will disinfect and eliminate water spots.
