Do you feel you have been spending a lot of your productive hours only on cleaning your glass shower doors? Many homemakers have been complaining of this tedious task and the common issue is that regardless of how much time they put in cleaning, the glass doors become dirty with the next use. In this article, we will throw light on tips for cleaning glass shower doors to achieve long-lasting results.
Why does Shower Glass get Dirty?
- Calcium and magnesium minerals present in hard water leave a whitish mark once the water evaporates. These hard water stains make the glass dirty.
- Shower glass gets dirty by soap scum formed due to hard water mixing with soap. Soap scum reduces the aesthetic beauty of your surfaces. It is a thin coating made up of fungal hyphae, which grows in warm and damp places.
- Glass also gets etched due to acidic cleaners. Etched glass surfaces are porous and they allow hard water minerals to seep into their pores over time, leading to corrosion.
- The areas where the shower glass meets the door frame or wall tile is always damp and attracts mold and mildew breeding.

Cleaning Tips if your Glass is New
If you have newly installed a shower glass, then some tips will help you maintain it like new always. Do not use acidic cleaners and only buy products with a high PH balance, i.e., which are alkaline. To clean soap scum off glass shower doors, there are many products available at Big Box Stores, but not all are that efficient and effective. Do not get lured by fancy offers and discounts. Only cleaning cannot guarantee that stains will not occur again. You need to use a shower glass protector – Valore Sealer, which can form a protective seal on the glass surface. You can maintain your glass using Valore Maintenance, which acts as a fresh cleaner for weekly maintenance jobs.
Cleaning Tips if your Glass is Old or Damaged
If your shower glass is already damaged with etching and hard water stains, then don’t worry! You can restore it like new. You need to first clean your shower glass with a shower cleaner -Benaz, to remove all the hard water dots and soap scum. After the glass is dry, seal the surface with a shower glass protector – Valore Sealer to prevent further staining. Use a squeegee to clean the glass with a cleaner as this helps to spread the liquid uniformly. It also helps to retract the remnants revealing a clear glass surface below.
