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

    Another basic chemistry denier. Use either the vinegar or the baking soda. Not both. The baking soda neutralizes the acid in the vinegar. If this mixture works at all, it is because the residual baking soda that is not neutralized is a mild abrasive.

    I keep a fairly large microfiber cloth in the shower.
    After using the shower, just wipe down the glass, fixtures and anything else you want to, and Voila ! No build up !
    Hang up the cloth , and done ! really prevents build up.
