Get into the groove with these tips for getting your shower door tracks clean.
Things You'll Need
- Liquid Spray Cleaners
- Cleaning Cloths
- Shower Wands
- Vacuum Cleaners With Long-nosed Attachment
- Old Toothbrushes
- Scrubbing Pads
Loosen up grunge and remove hair from completely dry tracks with an old toothbrush, then vacuum with a long-nosed attachment.
Spray tracks with liquid spray cleaner.
Scrub with a tile brush and - for those hard-to-reach places - a toothbrush.
Fold a scrub pad to fit the track and continue to scrub if more cleaning is necessary.
Rinse tracks with a shower wand (if you have one), or simply pour water into tracks. The tracks contain drain holes that lead to the tub or shower stall, so direct the water in that direction and away from the floor.
Use cleaning cloths to wipe away any dirt left behind during rinsing process.
Tips & Warnings
- Place towels on the floor to catch overflowing water when rinsing.
- If you have gold or brass doors, use cleaners as directed, and avoid harsh scrubbing.
