Q&A: Shower Door Build-Up

Question: How do I remove hard water deposits and build-up from my glass shower doors?

Answer: There are many techniques, but our favorite is a mild abrasive, a sponge, glass cleaner (optional), and a microfiber rag.

Wet your sponge and apply a quarter-sized amount of cleanser to the scrubber side of the sponge. Scrub the affected area in a circular motion. Use a dry microfiber cloth to buff off excess cleanser. Shine with glass cleaner and a clean microfiber (optional).


While this technique works for many examples of soap scum and hard water deposits, there are some that will need additional attention, and more extreme examples of hard water deposits may etch the glass.
