    Stop trying to clean it as the surface of the glass has been damaged. Why not Cover it or part of it with Contact or Clings on the outside, so your eye will be distracted .............

    I'm a world away from you, but here the local glass shop carries a paste that is terrific, although it is for hard water or calcium spots. If the glass is smooth, you could also try a one sided razor blade to scrape off any buildup. When you do find the right solution, I really like to put some kind of sealant on clean glass to resist future deposits. GlassX for autos is good and that local glass shop likely has some sealant also. Good luck! 🙂

    My glass door is the older privacy glass so droplets do not show. I do use a squeegee or towel on the door after the last shower of the day. This does keep it clean and less mildew in the shower area. Covering the glass with the cling type privacy product would give a nice look.

    My son updated a old tired bathroom and come into the same type of problem. when all else failed he poured toilet bowl cleaner on it and it came out sparkling clean. Of course he only did it once- not weekly.
    I think it would ruin chrome surfaces if used often. it should get you back to a clean slate.
    Now with that said, !! SAFTEY FIRST!! PROTECT YOUR FACE, EYES AND HANDS. and rinse thoroughly. We are no pro.

    First of all, we are all guilty of NOT immediately cleaning or wiping down the shower glass directly after a shower.,,me included. (we are not perfect) I clean mine the same way I do my car windows. First, believe it or not, I use the cheapo ECO "green cleaner" from the dollar store (or Roses), then wipe down with newspaper - trick my grandfather taught me years and years ago - doesn't leave streaks either. OR, a 50/50 vinegar/water solution. or baking soda, then add water til it is pasty.
    Please know though, everyone has their own secret recipes, I always opt in
    for the eco-friendly, make it yourself at home, cheap, effective & pet and human friendly.

    There's a spray cleaning product called "Kaboom" that works fairly well.
