WOW!!~ Here is the best tip you will probably ever hear of for never getting soap scum build up on your shower doors again!
Back a few years ago I shared a cleaning tip which was quite effective. However, it did not prevent the soap scum from returning on those glass showers doors of mine.
I have mentioned that we just had a bathroom renovation. Included in the renovation was a seamless glass shower door. My contractor told me to treat it with Rain X for shower doors, to prevent the soap scum in the future. I would advise if you are going to use this product, to be sure and clean your shower door thoroughly so you have a fresh start. Please see above link for details.
WOWZA..does that ever work. Grant you it has only been a few weeks since we have used it, but every day after the shower and using the squeegee, the doors are perfecto, and shiny like a diamond. Not one sign of soap and water stains thus far. FYI, you can also use regular Rain-x. It does not have to be the one specific for shower doors.
Remember these old stenciled shower doors?
Let me tell you, that job saved me for many years. It looked good and held up well. If it were not for our tile getting molding and falling off the wall we would have never done this renovation. I am going to write all about the shower after the new year. No regrets though, we love our new master bathroom.
You are going to get a little peek here at our tile. It was a tricky renovation because we were keeping our existing floor tile and paint color. We just painted the bathroom last year. If I were to do it today, I probably would have chosen a different color. Too late now! Again, we were not intending to do this renovation this year.
When using the Rain X for shower doors, please be sure to follow all the instructions. You will use a few more paper towels as you have to really rub and wipe this in. Once the initial process is finished, it will only get easier in the future. We will do this at least once a month. I would also recommend wearing a mask. It was a bit stronger than we had thought. If you can open a window, I would recommend that as well. But seriously, it’s awesome and it has been such a joy not to see soap scum build up. Here is another little quickie tip that I never intended to even share. But then I thought, it’s sort of a good one.
This here glass block window is an odd size. I wanted a window dressing on, but a valance just looked skimpy and wrong. So what I did was purchase an actual shower curtain from Home Goods. It was $12.99. I cut it in half exactly in the center and had two panels. I then used shower curtain hooks to attach it to my existing rod! So yes, you can also use a shower curtain for window treatments. Oh and the best part was, the cut portion you can’t see because it is on the outer portion of the curtain, and the inner panels show the hemmed clean part. Not sure how that worked out, but it looks perfect..like a curtain would on a window.

I just redid my shower…..I have been cleaning with CLR, I can’t wait to try this!
I am definitely trying this product….we use the squeegee after every shower…this will definitely be a time saver!!!
Can u use Rain x on fiberglass showers?
I just googled it, it said “yes”
Hard water and soap scum is a REALLY REALLY big issue on our master bathroom shower doors. I don’t know if I can get them clean enough to try this, but maybe a little is better than none?
Yes, first use the cleaning method I suggest to clean it well. Then try this:)
I’m passing this info on to friends and family that have glass shower doors. I wonder if it can be used on ceramic tile? Can’t imagine that it couldn’t be if it can be used on fiberglass. I love the shower curtain idea. There are so many pretty shower curtains now that are made of fabric instead of plastic.
We had a similar shower surround in our previous house and I used cheap shampoo, a sponge, and a squeegee to break up and clean the glass. Just rub the shampoo on the glass, scrub it with a sponge, rinse it off and squeege it clean. I would do this every couple of weeks and it really works.
I am jealous and want your shower! Rain X? WOW…I would have never thought that! Good to know! Hugs and blessings, Cindy
