One of my favorite features in my master bathroom is our shower. It’s a spacious shower enclosed in glass. All of that glass allows for plenty of light but that also means there’s more surface area to squeegee if we want that glass to stay spotless. Hard water and soap scum often make me think of the term “elbow grease”. I love the way my shower glass looks when it’s freshly clean, but getting it clean and keeping it clean often feel like an uphill battle. I’ve tried several cleaning products that are readily available in stores and while they did an okay job, I found a much cheaper and more effective solution. You know those Dawn dish soap ads with the oil covered ducks? It turns out that Dawn isn’t just great for dishes and duck baths.
In a spray bottle, mix equal parts original Dawn dish soap and white vinegar. Shake the bottle to mix well. Spray the solution onto the inside of your shower glass and allow to sit for a few minutes. Grab a rag or a microfiber cloth and wipe down the area that you sprayed with the solution. This step doesn’t require much scrubbing (if any). Once you’ve wiped all of that down, simply rinse all of the glass off with water and use a squeegee to dry the glass.
I love how simple and effective this process is. I’m always impressed with how well this works and how long the results will last if you take the time to squeegee the glass after each shower use. This method is also supposed to work well on chrome fixtures!
