The above and below pictures are of my bathroom mirror. I took a picture with the lights on and off trying to show how streaky the mirror was. My husband used Windex and a paper towels - this is what it left behind.

    Would this work to clean the shower door glass? I have the hardest time trying to get the built up crud off of them. If I ever get the clean, I will use Rainex X3 spray to keep them that way.

      Do you use bar soap in the shower? If so, that is the reason for the scum build-up. I have successfully used both ScrubFree and Kaboom on my shower doors. Perhaps change to a body wash liquid instead of bar soap.

    The water seems very sudsy - is that an ammonia with soap or sudsy ammonia?

      It is straight ammonia that I'm using. Mine will suds up a little if I put the ammonia in first and then add the water.
