3. Let It Sit

Give the shaving cream some time to do its job. I like to let it sit for about 10 minutes for a deep clean, but you can wipe it off straight away for impressive results.

4. Rinse and Dry

After letting it sit, you'll notice the shaving cream has dissolved and worked its cleaning wonders. Take a wet cloth and give the door a good rinse. Follow up with another cloth to dry it all up.

And there you have it! Sparkling doors and a delightful scent throughout the house.
