    Mix a 50/50 ratio of white vinegar and water. Spay the shower doors down and wipe with paper towel. They will sparkle.

    Vinegar, very hot water and a few drops of dawn dish soap. Don't burn yourself pour slowly from top of doors. Presto sparkly doors.

    I clean houses and move outs we use The Works Toilet Bowl Cleaner. The reason it works is because it is a weak muratic acid. Turn on the fan leave a little water running and I stick a spray nosel down into bottle and spray on. Or put it on a rag and wipe it off. It will get rid of hard water build up.

    If you mix dawn dish soap and white vinegar equal parts it melts the scum.

    Mix equal part of dawn dish soap and white vinegar. Melts the soap scum great for whole shower.

      @Blondecutie1961 I clean homes also, and this is what I use. As soon as I get there, I run the shower for a few minutes, then spray with my vinegar & Dawn mixture. When I come back to clean it, it's almost clean already! I also use this on the glass doors (or just Windex, if that's what's available). I use a Magic Eraser or a green scrubbing pad. Easy peasy!

    A wet dryer sheet works well - it has something in it that will help with the fogging issue too.

    On Dr. Oz , they showed someone cleaning a cloudy shower door with cooking spray!!! Just be careful not to get it on the floor of the tub, because it will become slippery. Check his web site for the entire story. They even showed shaving cream to get red wine stains out of carpets...

    Maybe a product such as rain x would help!
  • Kittye Kittye on Oct 28, 2015
    clean glass, then clean it again with rubbing alcohol. Let it try all the way, then apply Rain X. It really helps soap and body oils not stick. Just repeat 2x a month. I also use this on my bathroom mirror.
  • JerrySki JerrySki on Oct 28, 2015
    Rain X works great I use a product like Barkeepers first then Rain x

    I use Norwex Cleaning Paste. The water spots and hard water stains come right off. Follow up with the Norwex polishing cloth for the chrome trim and glass. Quick and clean, with no harsh chemicals.
  • 861650 861650 on Oct 28, 2015
    Cathi is right! Rain-X does the job!
  • Michelle Michelle on Oct 28, 2015
    when you clean the shower's make sure you ask your customers if they had glass shieldor coating on the class baked in more people are asking for it as it keeps the glass like new. If you use comet like products they will scratch the glass and nothing will fix it unless a glass company can buff it out if not they will need new glass. the best product to use is soap and water for those that are coated glass, or soft scrub lemon will work great for glass scum..

    If you are a house cleaner, you need a Rinseroo! It will cut the time you spend cleaning showers down significantly.. You can use one on all the showers you clean. Reaches all the hard to rinse spots. No more bucket rinsing!
