Watermarks on shower glass cause the biggest of eye-rolls. Cleaning glass shower doors seems like a never-ending, impossible battle. If you ever get lucky enough to scrub the stubborn spots off your glass, as soon as you hop in the shower, all your hard work goes down the drain. 

It can be hard to feel clean in a dirty-looking shower. So how does one make a shower spotless? Is it only possible in the movies or on your favorite Instagram influencer’s feed?

We don’t give up that easy, and neither should you. We have put together the best ways to clean your glass shower doors so you can get as steamy as you want — as much as you want! 

1. Invest in a Squeegee... Like Right Now

Preventing residue, scum, and water spots are much easier than cleaning them up after the fact. Mold and mildew thrive in a damp environment AKA how you usually leave your shower. The easiest way to nip this in the bud is to keep a squeegee in the shower. Investing in a small tool like a squeegee can make such a difference! Just like how you shampoo, condition, and shave - add a quick squeegee to the end of your routine.

Clean Freak Tip: Start from the top corner of your shower and drag the blade down, erasing any water drops and prevent the spread of mildew. If you want to go above and beyond, use a cloth to soak up any remaining water.

2. Air It Out

We can think of a couple of things that need to be aired out...and your shower is one of them. You want to keep your bathroom ventilated to help keep things clean and dry.

Get in the habit of leaving your bathroom door open, cranking open a window, or turning on the vent in your bathroom during and after your shower. Anything is better than leaving your shower like a tropical rainforest— trust us. 

3. Wipe It Right!

Um duh? This may seem obvious, but did you know there is a technique behind how to clean shower glass. The secret? You need a killer shower glass cleaner. Luckily, you’re in the right place. Not to toot our own horn, but cleaning products are kind of our thing.

We love transparency: transparent windows, transparent ingredients, sometimes transparent clothing, but that’s for another conversation.

The main reason we fell head over heels for Safely’s Glass Cleaner is it actually gets the job done. Our powerful combination of coconut oil, mineral salt, and corn-derived alcohol works together to clean, banish oil and residue quickly! 

How does this plant-powered formula do it? Each ingredient plays an important role. Antimicrobial alcohol quickly penetrates dirt, oil, and residue. Coconut oil cleans as it reduces static, leaving everything streak-free. And last but certainly not least. Mineral salt acts as a cleaning aid. Talk about a powerful trio.

We bet you never thought your glass cleaner could compete with your favorite candle. Our formula leaves your shower smelling like a bougie spa you never want to leave. 

Here’s the best way to use it on your shower glass:

Pro-Tip: Plan to clean your shower after someone has taken a shower. The hot water and moisture can help make your job easier by loosening up the grime before you even get started.

  1. Spray Safely Glass Cleaner on the up and down the shower door glass.
  2. Wait it out, let it do its cleaning thing, and break down the grime.
  3. Scrub the super grime spots (shampoo, conditioner, etc.)
  4. Rinse.
  5. Spray Glass Cleaner a final time and wipe it clean with a dry cloth or paper towel.
  6. Get naked. 

4. Don’t Leave Out The Edges

All the nooks and crannies of your shower need attention too. These corners are mold and bacteria’s favorite hang-out spot. We give you permission to be the party pooper on this one; kick them out. Use a toothbrush to scrub the frame and corners of your shower, then finish it off with a wipe of our Glass Cleaner for a total de-grime.

5. Keep it Clean

Little work every once in a while can help you avoid a big build-up of nasty. As much as we wish it weren’t the reality, cleaning has to happen regularly to stay clean. Try to stick to a cleaning schedule, even if it’s loosely. Here are some good rules of thumb to how often you should maintain the clean:

Everyday: Use a squeegee after every shower. Remember air out your bathroom!

Every Week-ish: Give your shower a wipe down with Safely’s Glass Cleaner and glass cloth. 

Every Month-ish:  Bring out the toothbrush. Scrub, wipe, rinse and repeat — it’s time for a deep clean.
