How to Clean Your Shower Door
Now that you have your supplies, the procedure is simple:

First, place half a cup of baking soda in a container and slowly add vinegar until the mixture reaches a pasty texture. The mixing of baking soda and vinegar can fizz off a little bit, but this should is not a cause for worry. As soon as the fizzing is finished, place the scrub sponge in the mixture and apply it generously on the shower door. When the entire door is covered, leave the mixture for ten to fifteen minutes for it to cut down all the dirt.

Second, use a scrubbing sponge and water to fully remove the paste. After the mixture is totally removed, use a window squeegee and some paper towels to dry the glass.

Last, but not least, check for any traces of scum. If there are none, then your job is done.

Repeat this procedure at least once a week to ensure your shower door will always be sparkling clean. Modern Glass Co. is the go to company for both small and large glass projects alike. Next time you need a reliable shower door installation in North Idaho be sure to give us a call.
