    Step 1

    Fill a spray bottle with undiluted white vinegar and Dawn at a 50/50 mix and screw the top back on tightly. Adjust the sprayer nozzle to the widest spray pattern, not a narrow stream.

    Step 2

    Get inside the shower so that you can access every portion of the doors. Spray the doors from top to bottom with the vinegar until they are covered. Get out of the shower and allow the vinegar to sit for approximately 30 minutes.

    Step 3

    Spray a nylon scrubbing sponge with the vinegar mixturen until it is saturated. Get back inside the tub and scrub the shower doors using a constant circular motion to dislodge any remaining residue.

    Step 4

    After rinsing use a squeegee and create a streak-free shine.

    Hello. Have you tried Lime Away?

    Perhaps the product reviews and Q&A might assist you at this link

    We have considerable hard water troubles too. Its very frustrating.

    I think the most reliable remedy is probably the most expensive -a water softner system.

    We have to be discipled to fight to prevent the mineral deposits and water spots. Routine drying out the shower enclosure, shower glass -all metal fridge water dispenser and bathtubs have to be done with towel and or squeegee. At home car washing? It has to be dried immediately! Additionally Im considering the Rain X products for shower door care and maintenance. We have extremely hard water-good luck!

    Our complete shower door cleaning guide will have every tip you need for cleaning a shower door (based on science :) ) Something to keep in mind, hard water can etch surfaces overtime and cause permanent damage. If nothing works, this could be the case. We have information on this too in our post:

    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. NOTE: not safe for marble. You can use 2x a week to accelerate the cleaning process then once a week to keep it clean.
