    Cut a grapefruit in half, cover with kosher salt and use as a scrubber.

    Lysol Power Scum cleaner in the blue trigger spray bottle with a Magic Eraser or a scrub brush.

    Wet & forget shower for a slower, no scrub solution. You can use 2x a week to accelerate the cleaning process then once a week to keep it clean. It also works on the fixtures.

    CLR or straight vinegar let sit scrub of f with green scrubber sponge;put straight stuff on paper towels or cloth-thin tshirts cut in pieces work best(just dampen them so they stay up on glass or walls and wrapped around fixtures so it can soak) and let it sit for 10 minutes or more;rinse with hot water

    I use a damp nano cloth. Nothing else works this well. I spent a ton of money on glass cleaners & natural stuff but this cloth is the only thing that worked! I got mine on Amazon. It’s amazing!

    Also if you wipe the doors down with a cloth dampen with Old English furniture polish and wipe over with a dry cloth after each cleaning, well no more build up.

    Vinegar, water and blue Dawn dish soap. Equal parts mixed in a spray bottle
