The best way to clean your glass shower door!

The best way to clean your glass shower door


When my husband and I moved into our house last year, we were blessed to have an amazing updated Master Bath with all new "Kohler" fixtures and tile. I love our bathroom. The only thing I didn't love, the soap scum that came with it on the bottom of the glass shower door.

No matter what I used or how hard I scrubbed, there still was a cloudy soap scum appearance on the bottom of the glass door and it would drive me crazy! I tried everything...well not everything, yet.

Now, I don't know where I originally read this tip, I wish I could remember to link it up. But I figured it was worth a shot to try at least!

The best way to remove soap scum from your shower glass door is simple: Cut a lemon in half, dip the lemon half in a small bowl of salt (I used sea salt because of the big grain size). Using the salt on the lemon, scrub the glass door with the lemon (like a sponge) squeezing just a little to get the juices flowing. Keep dipping in the salt as needed to scrub the area. I made sure I was actually "in" my shower for easier clean up.

I was amazed to see the cloudy soap scum just disappearing away before my eyes! This actually works!  I scrubbed away in a few minutes what had so stubbornly refused to go away for over a year. I rinsed off the lemon residue and my shower was soap scum free at last.

I was so proud of myself, that I ran to get my husband to show him the shower! He looked at me kind of confused as to what I had just used to clean our shower, "a lemon and salt?" he asked curiously. "Well, whatever works!" he shrugged his shoulders and nodded in approval.

I wish I would've known this simple household trick a lot sooner, maybe I'm the only one who didn't know. However, just in case, I'm sharing it with you!

(Note: I tried to take before and after photos but due to the angle of our bathroom and my mediocre camera skills. It just wasn't happening.)

Have you tried cleaning with a lemon?

  16. I've tried cleaning kitchen counter tops with lemon. It works well for me but I don't do it all the time. Usually, if I use the lemon in cooking I'll use what's leftover to just scrub down the utensils and the counter. However, I never knew it could be so effective on soap scum.

  17. Wow! I have used lemons for cleaning utensils for leftovers but never knew they could be effective on soap scum. Thanks for sharing this tip.
