Easy Ways To Clean Shower Doors & Tiles

 

Easy Ways To Clean Shower Doors & Tiles

 

Okay, your house is up for sale and you cleaned it up perfectly; but you still need to use the shower everyday. How do you keep the glass doors  and tiles clean and spot-free?

 

Here are a few things to try:

Easy Ways To Clean Shower Doors & Tiles

  • Spray Rain-X on the glass doors after cleaning. Use a soft towel to wipe it down until dry. Rain-X can be found in automotive shops or departments. It's used for helping to keep windshields free of rain.

  • Use a dishwasher rinsing agent like Jet-dry to spray the tiles. Water and soap scum will sheet off the walls. Slather it on a sponge and swipe it on the glass. Be cautious: this stuff is strong, wear gloves and protect your eyes. Test on a small area first.

  • Use softener sheets to clean the glass doors. Wet them and rub the door and rinse.

  • Use a squeegee for cleaning water of walls and doors. Keep one in the shower so everyone can do it after they shower.

  • Use 1 part water and 1 part white vinegar in a spray bottle; allow the solution to set for 10 minutes; wipe off with clean water in a bucket; wipe with a clean towel. dampen a clean cloth with baby oil and wipe all the walls and doors.

 

These are several ways to clean your shower  and keep keep them clean. Try whichever ones suit you best. Be careful, wear armor (gloves and eye shields) and always try a small corner first. If your shower doors are newer, they may have a special coating on them that only requires a squeegee swipe. Using anything else could wreck the coating and negate your warranty.

 

If that doesn't sell your house, call me....I can.

Toni, these are great tips...I need to clean my windows and this comes at a great time!

Posted by Kristin Johnston - REALTOR®, Giving Back With Each Home Sold! (RE/MAX Realty Center ) over 3 years ago

Toni: These are all excellent tips to help keep the shower looking its best, especially when the home is otherwise "show ready".

Posted by Anita Clark, Realtor - Homes for Sale in Warner Robins GA (ColdwellBanker SSK Realtors ~ 478.960.8055) over 3 years ago

Kristin, we've used Rain-X for years on our windsheilds. Never thought of it for showers.

Anita, thanks. The bath is the hardest room to keep neat when you're home is for sale.

Posted by Toni Weidman, 26 Years Selling Homes in New Port Richey, FL (Sailwinds Realty) over 3 years ago

Good morning Toni. Albuquerque is known for it's very hard water and the stains that brings. We have a water softener but still yearly do use Rain-X to clean the walk in glass shower. It works wonders! Good post.

Posted by John McCormack, AlbuquerqueHomes.com, Albuquerque Homes Realty (Albuquerque Homes Realty * www.AlbuquerqueHomes.com) over 3 years ago

We have really hard water here too, John. Water spots everywhere! 

Posted by Toni Weidman, 26 Years Selling Homes in New Port Richey, FL (Sailwinds Realty) over 3 years ago

Good Morning Toni, thanks for the great tips, I will try some of these myself as it really is hard work to get the water spots off.

Posted by Beth Atalay, Cam Realty of Clermont FL (Cam Realty and Property Management) over 3 years ago

I like the Jet Dry idea.  Would it be applied full strength with a sponge, or diluted and sprayed on the tile?

Posted by Mike Carlier, More opinions than you want to hear about. over 3 years ago

Toni, the Rain-X tip is awesome!  I would have never thought of that!  Thanks!

 

Posted by Kerry L Klun, Broker/Owner, 321-626-5868 (Palm Realty) over 3 years ago

I like that Rain-x tip. We used it when we first installed our new glass shower doors, but have forgotten about using it again...

Toni,

Great tip on Rain X.  We have a squeegee we use every time.  A

Toni, I think Liz uses baking soda and vinegar to clean our shower doors.  I suspect your Rain-x tip is a lot easier to do!

Toni,  These are some good tips for shower cleaning.  Those glass doors can get so messed up.

Posted by Belinda Spillman, Colorado Living! (Aspen Lane Real Estate Colorful Colorado) over 3 years ago

Toni These are great ideas to keep things clean and fresh ..it deserves a reblog

Posted by Hannah Williams, Expertise NE Philadelphia & Bucks 215-953-8818 (Re/Max Eastern inc.) over 3 years ago

Toni~ On some of the new coating for shower doors, they suggest not using any agent or you might negate your warranty. They suggest just to squeegee. I saw one just last week that went cloudy after a client used a vinegar solution...

Posted by Paul S. Henderson, REALTOR®,CRS,, Tacoma Washington Agent/Broker & Market Authority! (RE/MAX Professionals.) over 3 years ago

Paul, that's why you should test a corner first. Some of the newer doors have a special coating and should just be squeegeed. Thanks for the reminder, I'll add it in.

Posted by Toni Weidman, 26 Years Selling Homes in New Port Richey, FL (Sailwinds Realty) over 3 years ago

Toni -- thanks for all of these great tips.  I hate those "coated" shower doors.

Posted by Joan Whitebook, Consumer Focused Real Estate Services (BHG The Masiello Group) over 3 years ago

Hi Toni, good tips and we keep a squeegee in all the showers. It really keeps the walls and doors nice and clean.

Posted by Rebecca Gaujot, Lewisburg WV, the go to agent for all real estate (Perry Wellington Realty, Adam Conrad, Broker) over 3 years ago

Great cleaning tips ... Rainex who knew?

Posted by Dinah Stallworth, NATCHITOCHES, LA HOMES FOR SALE (Priority Real Estate LLC - 800.978.4847) over 3 years ago

Rainex is a new one for me....and will pass the word...doors are why we built our walk in showers without them....one more thing to clean !

Posted by Sally K. & David L. Hanson, WI Realtors - Luxury - Divorce - Short Sale (Keller Williams 414-525-0563) over 3 years ago

Toni, I use the vinegar and water and squeegy tool. It keeps the glass and tile looking nicely. I have heard about using Rainex and will have to give that a try too.

Posted by Debbie Reynolds, Your Dedicated Clarksville TN Real Estate Agent (Platinum Properties) over 3 years ago

Toni, Thank you for the tips. I am definitely going to give this a try. RainX and Jet Dry? Now, my question how did you figure this out???

Posted by Stacey Williams, Experienced Metro Atlanta Real Estate Agent over 3 years ago

Rainex is not for cleaning it's to be applied to repel the water from the surface after it's clean! It's getting them clean with the hard water that is so very difficult & of all the products I have tried with is nearly 50 the Vinegar & water is still the best but I have still replaced many shower doors in our market!

Posted by Greg Riley, e-PRO,RECS, Rio Rancho Real Estate (Prudential AllStar Realtors) over 3 years ago

Thx for the tips and I absolutely love the last line of this post.

Posted by Rosalind Nicholas, Toronto Condo Real Estate Agent, Toronto ON (RE/MAX Condos Plus Corporation, Brokerage) over 3 years ago

There is a Rain-X that is also a glass cleaner in combo with the water shed, Greg. I just bought it today..

Posted by Toni Weidman, 26 Years Selling Homes in New Port Richey, FL (Sailwinds Realty) over 3 years ago

Thank you!  Keeping the showers sparkling clean is very difficult - I'm will be looking for RainX.

Posted by Margaret Goss, Chicago's North Shore & Winnetka Real Estate (Baird & Warner Real Estate) over 3 years ago

Hi Toni. These are some great ideas. I've heard of using Rain X after you've gotten the shower clean, not as a cleaner...Thank you for the tips!

Squeegies are wonderful to keep in showers! I'd never heard of using the dishwasher cleaner in a shower. Interesting.

Posted by Maria Morton, Kansas City Real Estate 816-560-3758 (Chartwell Kansas City Realty) over 3 years ago

Thanks for all the cleaning tips. Funny how vinegar is a cure all for many things. Going to try the RainX on the glass doors. 

Posted by Bill Reddington, Destin Florida Real Estate (Re/max Southern Realty) over 3 years ago

Toni- I've used vinegar and water and then RainX!
