How to Clean Soap Scum Off Shower Doors

Who else thinks soap scum is the enemy of all homeowners?
This past weekend I decided to put my cleaning plan into action and eliminate the haze on my shower doors that's from soap & hard water. I used the safe combination of baking soda and white vinegar to remove the soap scum. Then I applied Rain-X to the shower door glass to prevent this from happening again, or at the very least stop me from having to clean the doors as frequently.
I wanted to share this process because it worked better than I thought it would. You can view the blog post I put together at http://www.homerepairtutor.com/clean-shower-doors.
If you don't do anything else you should view the video. Not only does it walk you through everything I did it shows you one crucial action I forgot to take-comb my hair before filming! But I don't mind embarrassing myself for the Hometalk community.
Time: 30 Minutes Difficulty: Easy

    Rain-X is very slippery. Every few months I put some Barkeeper's Friend on a sponge and the glass looks like it's new.

    My grandmother always used lemon oil, for furniture, on her tile and shower. Clean you tile and or glass doors after it dries apply the lemon oil with a cloth, never have spots again. I have used this in the past and it really does work!

    Caution, If you use Rainx or anything like it, cover the floors, especially in the shower. Rainx will make your shower floor DANGEROUSLY slippery when wet. It does work great on the glass though.

    Tried every natural cleaning idea I ever seen to clean showe doors and the only thing that did it without question and almost no effort was Mr Clean eraser sponges. I don't like chemicals but it does the job with a touch.
