1. Prep the Doors:
Start by giving your glass shower doors a quick rinse. This helps remove any loose debris and prepares the surface for the cleaning method.
2. Vinegar Application
Grab a bottle of vinegar – your new best friend in the world of cleaning. Generously spray the shower doors with vinegar making sure to cover the entire surface.
This magical elixir works wonders in breaking down hard water stains.
3. Plastic Wrap Magic
Now, here's the trick that makes all the difference. Cover your vinegar-soaked doors with a layer of plastic wrap. This creates a seal, allowing the vinegar to work its charm without evaporating too quickly.
Let the vinegar and plastic wrap duo work their magic for at least half an hour. This gives them enough time to dissolve those stubborn hard water stains.
4. Unveil the Doors
Once the clock has ticked away, unveil your shower doors from their plastic wrap cocoon. You'll already notice a significant reduction in those stubborn stains.
6. Sponge and Soap Action
Armed with a sponge and a bit of dish soap, start scrubbing down your shower doors.
For deeply rooted stains, you might need to repeat the process. However, don't worry; a little effort goes a long way.
To keep your glass shower doors in tip-top condition, consider using this method on a monthly basis. To prevent hard water buildup, a quick wipe-down with a squeegee after each shower helps tremendously.
