How to Keep Your Glass Shower Doors Clean
There are many articles on how to clean glass shower doors, but many guides do not go over preventative measures. The biggest culprit to clean shower doors is soap scum. Soap scum is not only an eyesore, but it's also an ideal environment for organism growth such as mold. Gross! Did we mention once it's built up on your glass shower door it's even harder to remove?
In addition, soap scum is brought on by hard water deposits, which is mainly composed of calcium and magnesium. Just because calcium is good for your bones doesn't mean it's good for your shower. Not only will hard water corrode your clean glass shower doors, hard mineral water deposits can clog drains and wreck havoc on other household appliances such as dishwashers.
You may wonder what the connection is between hard water and soap scum. Well, hard water lowers the ability for soap to lather and you end up using more soap than necessary which causes soap build up.
