2. Clean 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.

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

4. Dry

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.
