How To Clean a Shower Door


Regular maintenance is vital for a shower door to perform at its best.

For daily cleaning, the simplest and preferred method is to wash the unit with clean water and dry with a soft cloth or squeegee. If soil is still present after drying, mild dish soap or another non-abrasive cleaner with a pH of seven to eight may be used. Do not use scouring pads, sharp instruments, or acid-based cleansers to clean the unit. While many homeowners use vinegar as a natural all-purpose cleaner, its high level of acidity can damage some surfaces - including the finish of your shower door hardware.

Once your shower glass is clean and clear, you can take some preventative steps to ensure that it stays that way. The best way to keep the glass clean is by drying the surface of the glass after each use. Dry the glass with a microfiber cloth or a squeegee. We also recommend bathing with a liquid soap instead of traditional bar soap. Liquid soap, or body wash, is much less likely to leave soap scum residue in your shower.

Additionally, a water-repellent coating, such as EnduroShield, may be applied to greatly reduce the amount of water that is able to dry on the surface of the glass.

Note: Always follow the manufacturer’s instructions on the labels of household cleaning products. To protect the finish of your bath enclosure you should only use products recommended for glass and anodized aluminum surfaces by the manufacturer of the cleaning product. If in doubt contact the manufacturer of the cleaning product. Use of harsh cleansers or detergents not specifically recommended for use on anodized metal or glass surfaces may damage your unit.
