How To Prevent & Clean Soap Scum From Glass Shower Doors


Preventing soap scum build-up on glass shower doors can be done by implementing a few simple habits in your daily routine:

  1. Use a squeegee: After each shower, use a squeegee to remove excess water from the glass shower door. This will prevent soap scum from forming by reducing the amount of water that stays on the surface.

  2. Ventilate the bathroom: Make sure to run the bathroom fan or open a window during and after showers. Proper ventilation will reduce the amount of moisture in the air, which can contribute to soap scum build-up.

  3. Switch to liquid soap: Bar soap can leave behind residue that contributes to soap scum build-up. Switching to liquid soap can reduce this problem.

  4. Clean regularly: Regular cleaning can prevent soap scum from building up over time. Use one of the eco-friendly methods mentioned earlier to clean the glass shower door at least once a week or more frequently if needed.

By implementing these habits, you can reduce the likelihood of soap scum build-up and keep your glass shower door looking clean and clear.


However, should you already have a build up of soap scum, here are some cleaning tips on how to get your shower doors back to sparkling clean! And Eco-friendly too:

Here are a few methods you can try:

  1. Vinegar and Baking Soda Method: Mix 1/2 cup of baking soda and 1/4 cup of water to create a paste. Spread the paste onto the glass shower door and let it sit for 15 minutes. Then, spray white vinegar on top of the paste and scrub the door with a non-scratch sponge or cloth. Rinse the door with warm water and dry with a microfiber cloth.

  2. Lemon Juice and Vinegar Method: Mix equal parts of lemon juice and vinegar in a spray bottle. Spray the mixture on the glass shower door and let it sit for 10 minutes. Scrub the door with a non-scratch sponge or cloth. Rinse the door with warm water and dry with a microfiber cloth.

  3. Dish Soap and Vinegar Method: Mix 1/4 cup of dish soap with 1/4 cup of white vinegar and 1/2 cup of water in a spray bottle. Spray the mixture on the glass shower door and let it sit for 10 minutes. Scrub the door with a non-scratch sponge or cloth. Rinse the door with warm water and dry with a microfiber cloth.

Remember to always test a small, inconspicuous area before using any of these methods on your entire glass shower door.
