Many short-term rental owners share their challenges regarding rental house cleaning and the maintenance of their rental properties. With the professionalisation of the vacation rental sector and subsequent market growth, keeping a clean property ranks high for property owners and managers.

And what about you? You already have enough on your plate working extremely long hours.

Most full-time jobholders dislike household chores, particularly cleaning up glass shower doors!  And it’s, in fact, a hard feat. However, glass showers sure do add a touch of elegance and royalty in an otherwise monotonous-themed bathroom.

How to Clean Glass Shower Doors

Hard water droplets can easily become a solid residue on the glass shower door’s surface. So, maintaining a squeaky clean, shiny glass shower door is not easy to achieve.  We all agree that an unclean shower door looks dirty in an otherwise clean bathroom.

With some of the following tips, it will become easier to clean shower doors.

” Housekeeping is like being caught in a revolving door. Nothing inspires cleanliness more than an unexpected guest.”

1) Wipe With A Squeegee

You must have seen a windshield-wiper before. A squeegee resembles that tool with a handle and hard rubber, which is used to wipe off water from the surface. So, wiping off the glass doors with a squeegee after a shower can help reduce water from drying on the glass surface.

2) Spray Daily Shower Cleaner

Once the glass door is wiped clean, spray it with a daily shower cleaner. You can easily buy this from the store or make a DIY shower cleaner at home. Spraying the glass doors will reduce the hard water formation, and you wouldn’t need to deep clean the doors as often.

3) Use Baking Soda, Water, and Vinegar

If you don’t want to use chemical compounds, then opting for a natural remedy may be better. It’s simple and effective, but the quantity varies. Add half a cup of baking soda in water to make a thick paste. Scrub the glass door with a sponge and later rinse it off with vinegar to attain the best results.

4) Deep Clean or Install A Water Softener

Purchase deep cleaning products if mold and grime form on the glass shower doors. Alternatively, you can install a water softener to reduce mineral and hard water spot buildup. Yes, this option is expensive but it’s worth the effort.


The only way to prevent soap scum from forming on your glass shower door is to clean them regularly. Follow these tips and your shower glass will keep on shining without spots. what
