This Twice a Year Cleaning Secret For Sparkling Shower Doors is easy and fast and keeps your shower doors beautifully see-through with minimal effort for approximately 180 days.
Twice a Year Cleaning Secret For Sparkling Shower Doors
In our house, we have a lot of bathrooms, five total (I think you can understand why we have a cleaning service). We have three bathrooms that have showers and two half baths. When we moved in, one of the bathrooms had just been renovated, and while the tub was an expensive imported soaking tub, the shower was not anything fancy. At all. A less-than-wonderful job was done to finish the shower with a short floor ledge and no shower doors – not even a curtain pole!
The master bath had frameless doors, and Hubby and I liked that look. We decided to install a frameless door (and a side wall between the shower and tub) in that supposedly “completed” shower.
While the measurements were being taken, I asked the glass man how in the world we would keep the doors clean. I had noticed a soap build-up starting on the shower doors in the master in the short time we had been living at the house, and the last thing I wanted to do was clean soap scum off of shower doors weekly (or daily). He told me about this “secret” product and what to do to keep our shower doors sparkling clean year-round with little effort!
In our master bathroom, we had to clean the shower doors well. This meant vinegar. I cleaned both sides with straight vinegar and a damp rag and then cleaned the doord in a circular motion until they were beautifully clean. I then dried them thoroughly. (Make sure you have ventilation!)
Well, anyone with glass shower doors knows this sparkling clean will not last long.
To make this sparking clean last, I applied Invisible Shield Surface Protectant in a wax-on-wax-off motion with a clean rag.
Note: the original bottle I linked to is no longer available by itself, so I have updated the link. It is the blue bottle here.
I allowed the Invisible Shield Surface Protectant to dry to a light haze.
I then flicked some water on the glass and dried it in a circular motion. I do this in sections.
That is it. Seriously.
Thereafter, whenever we take a shower, we squeegee the water off the doors. In between showers? Sparkling shower doors and no soap scum! You know when the next application needs to be done when the water stops flowing off the doors in rivers. Basically, you are just squeegeeing remainder water off the doors; most of it flows off the doors on its own due to the Invisible Shield Surface Protectant.
We’ve been doing this for over 15 years now. Since no one uses Sonny-boy’s shower anymore, those shower doors don’t have to be cleaned very often. I’d say both shower doors have been cleaned a total of 50 times (when added together), and I am only on my third bottle of Invisible Shield Surface Protectant. Remember, Sonny-boy’s shower not only had frameless doors, it has a side that is frameless glass too, so there is a bit more to it to clean than our shower doors, but it has been used far less than our shower.
I cannot recommend the Invisible Shield Surface Protectant and a squeegee method enough. It really and truly is a simple, easy, completely painless way to have sparkling shower doors with minimal cleaning effort!
