It Really Works-My Shower Doors Are Finally Clean

I have read on several posts that you can use Dryer sheets to get your shower doors really clean.  Well I have tried everything.  I have scrubbed the shower doors in our master bathroom almost daily since we moved in.  They just always looked like they had soap scum and drippy runs down the doors no matter what I did.  Now part of the problem is frosted doors.  They are so hard to take care of because soap just seems to stick in all those tiny groves of the frosted side and you just can't get them clean.

Not true.  I remembered the other day and decided to give the Dryer Sheets a try.  OMG, they work.  Now the directions said to use a new or used dampened dryer sheet and scrub away.  No need to rinse.  I did that and it created kind of a foamy cleansing agent that did scrub the door.  However it left it really streaky, so I used a cloth to wipe it off.  Still a little streaky.  So once I could see that most of the soap scum was cleaned off, I got out the Scrubbing Bubbles and sprayed down the doors.  I let it sit for a minute then took a wet rag and washed it away.

You won't believe how clean my doors are.  No scum, no drips, no runs and even the frosted side is clean.


 See, nothing and all you can see is the shadow of the chrome shower caddy that sits in that corner.


 No matter which angle you look at, the door is clean.


 I am thrilled, now I feel like I am getting clean too.


 So if you have shower doors that are driving you crazy - - -

give the Dryer Sheet and Scrubbing Bubbles a try.  It worked great on my doors.

    1. We squeegee down out dooors every day after the shower also, but it just seemed like they were never clean. I think something left from the previous owners, but now I can say they are really clean and should be easy to keep that way.

  3. I have a brand new shower and I couldn't get the doors clean. It wasn't a question of soap scum--they are new--but there were streaks. I will try the dryer sheets. I dry everything outdoors anyway (free and smells SO good).

  4. I use spray Comet and it takes soap scum and streaks off of my clear glass doors. I tried other stuff and always come back to my spray Comet. It might help someone else too. 😊

  7. Always love a good cleaning tip. We squeegee ours off after every shower, but they still need a good cleaning too. I will try this out. I will also have to tell you about my magic cleaning cloths that you don't have to use any chemicals with for glass and mirrors, stainless, anything you want to shinel and NO streaking, love them. Sorry to be posting about a blog post on your post, but it explains how great these are and where to get them......http://goodlifeofdesign.blogspot.com/search?q=magic+cleaning+cloth

  10. I took off the shower door when I bought the house and used a shower curtain. While the shower stall is tile, I wipe it down after I take a shower and it looks great no water stain or hard water. Takes only a few minutes and its done until I take a shower again.

    So glad that you found a good way to clean.

  14. The frosted doors are much worse than clear glass. I have to second Kathy Sue's post about the cloths. Work like a charm. My master shower is doorless but my guest shower is clear glass and while only a year old and limited showers it is spotless. Squeegee is always a must and takes 30 seconds and then the special cloths. Marty, considering this is your master shower you might want to consider clear glass, frameless doors down the road. No track to clean is a big plus. And my experience is the clear always cleans better than the frosted glass. Time will tell. Good post. Dee

  15. I use scrubbing bubbles to clean my showers. I leave it on for a few minutes, scrub with a Spring and then reapply. After that I let the shower steam up and then wipe down. Will try fabric sheets though!

  16. This is great! I had never heard of this before! Thanks for this great tip.

  17. It's always great to find something that works, is nontoxic and inexpensive. For those of you who like Bar Keeper's Friend, they now have a spray cleaner. I really like the liquid, which is similar to Soft Scrub.

  18. I have environmental asthma and have a problem finding cleaners that don't smell. Now I mix Dawn for dishes and peroxide. Works great. Thank goodness this home doesn't have shower doors. Not sure it's worth the work or stress to keep them clean.

  19. hm, I will have to try it on mine. I think the glass might be etched though from the water. But what do I have to lose? Thanks for sharing!

  25. We recently had our shower screen removed after a leak and flooding into our shoe closet downstairs (I was lucky that my leather Mulberry bag was in a dust bag and didn't get damaged ). It is a shower over bath in a rental house and I refused a new one as they wanted to fit in a tiny one that just wouldn't work. We will just have lace shower curtain with peva liner ( I ordered it yesterday so let's hope it looks good as the previous one was faulty and I had to send it back and it was a nightmare to get my money back). I reordered a cream one from a different seller, and it was also cheaper than the previous white one. I hated washing that 4 panel shower screen to be sure!
