Overview

Over time, soap scum can build up on your shower glass, creating a layer of grime that glass cleaner just won't cut through. Using some simple cleaning products, you can achieve a streak-free shine every time, ensuring your shower glass remains clear and clean.

Steps

1Gather all your tools and materials

Make sure you have all your required tools and materials ready including your safety equipment, before you start to clean.

3Clean the glass

Spray the shower cleaner on the glass surfaces. To spread it around, wipe the spray with a damp microfibre cloth. Let the spray soak as per the instructions on the product packaging, the exact time may vary depending on the cleaner used.

For those hard-to-reach areas, such as the bottom and sides of the shower, use a magic eraser along with a little water and elbow grease.

4Rinse

Rinse the soapy areas with cold water using a shower hose, or if you don't have one you can use a jug.

5Dry

For a streak-free finish, dry right away with a microfibre cloth. Alternatively, if you have a Karcher window vac, you can also use this to clean your shower glass. Simply run it down the shower screen one width at a time – the vac will clean and dry as you go.
