If you have hard water in your home, you will likely end up with limescale buildup on your glass shower doors. Limescale is an off-white buildup that is the result of impurities and high mineral content in hard water. Limescale on shower doors is unsightly and makes the entire shower look unclean. Fortunately, it is not a difficult or lengthy process to remove limescale buildup from your glass shower doors. Use the proper products and your shower doors will sparkle.
Things You'll Need
- Empty spray bottle
- White vinegar
- Distilled water
- Paper towels
- Washing soda
Fill an empty spray bottle with equal parts white vinegar and distilled water. Spray the vinegar solution onto the glass shower doors.
Let the vinegar mixture sit on the glass for ten minutes. Wipe the doors clean with a damp rag. Dry the shower doors thoroughly with paper towels.
Use washing soda for heavy limescale buildup that cannot be removed with the vinegar solution alone. Mix two parts washing soda with one part white vinegar in a bowl. Stir until a paste forms.
Rub the paste onto the glass shower doors with a damp rag. Let it sit for ten minutes.
Wipe down the doors with a damp sponge to remove the residue. Dry the doors with paper towels.
