    Scrub out using a toothbrush and a bleach or oxy type bathroom cleanser.

    In our personal situation we have to be disciplined make preventive measures with each use to combat our mold and hard water situation.
    Prevent soap scum and mold buildup by using a squeegee, sponge, or absorbent towel on the frameless glass door and ceramic walls of the enclosure after every shower. Doing so helps remove residue before it hardens, while also eliminating the moisture that mold and mildew need in order to thrive. The sponge or towel will need be wrung out well and allow it to dry completely between each use. Launder the towel or throw the sponge in the dishwasher to disinfect regularly. This sorta routine care helps make the weekly cleaning manageable preventing mold mildew sosp scum and hard warer stains.

    Bleach mixed with water will kill most of the mold spores. (3 parts water with 1 part bleach). However, it does sound like you have an issue with moisture in your bathroom. Bathroom exhaust fans come in different CFM strengths. You might consider replacing yours with a higher CFM rating. If you do choose to replace it, be sure to read the box for the sones rating. That's the noise level. I hope this helps you. Happy New Year.

    GET RID OF THE SHOWER DOOR! If you have the conventional 2 sliding doors with a track attached to the bathtub and a support track the doors hang on above, just get rid of it. You can replace it with a shower curtain and liner. Just use a shower curtain tension rod. The few holes created by the mounting screws can be filled in easily. Then, you have the far easier task of washing the liner as needed and just cleaning the tub. I detest these things...gross germ factories that are never really clean.
