Vinegar is a key component to a natural glass shower door cleaner.

Glass shower doors are probably one of the most difficult parts of the house to keep clean. The shower doors always seem to have a buildup of soap scum, hard water stains and mineral deposits. Being that the shower is used so often, the shower doors seem like they are always in need of a cleaning. Many products are available to buy in stores, but they are all made with harsh chemicals. To save money and get an earth-friendly alternative, use natural products to create a glass shower door cleaner.

Add 1 cup of baking soda and 1 cup of salt to a medium-size bowl.
