|Dirty Shower Door...kind of gross, right?|
Here is what you do: You fill a kitchen sponge that has a reservoir with a mixture of dish soap and white vinegar. Scrub away at the scum on the shower doors. Rinse with hot water to get rid of the bubbles. Done.
I decided to use the ultra concentrated Dawn that we already own. I have switched to a more natural dish liquid, so I was happy to find another use for the Dawn. I wasn't sure of proportions so I just put in a single generous squirt and then filled the rest with white vinegar. I was surprised that cleaning the doors didn't take more elbow grease than it did. Using the sponge, I could feel when the glass became clean and smooth. Rinsing was very easy. As the shower doors dried, I could easily see any areas that I missed because the difference was amazing! I am happy to say that I will not be returning to the world of the fumes!! I have included pictures of the comparison so that you can hopefully see how well this method really works.
