Groundwater often contains higher concentrations of dissolved minerals that will collect on your shower door over time. This mineral can be extremely tough to clean, especially when it builds up over time. Even many of the special mineral deposit cleaners that can be bought in stores aren’t effective at removing the white spots off your glass doors. Luckily, there are cheap home solutions that help with cleaning mineral deposits from glass shower doors.
The mineral deposits on your glass door most likely consist of lime. Vinegar is a fantastic solution to any lime problem. Let vinegar soak on your door for a few minutes, and then scrub it off with a Scotch Brite pad, or something similar. The lime should come right off, but if you’re having difficulties, a higher concentration of vinegar may be needed. Some grocery stores sell highly concentrated vinegar, which is cheap and should get the mineral deposits right off.
After getting the mineral deposits off your shower door, you should take preventive measures to make sure that this situation doesn’t repeat itself. Rain-X is a popular glass protection spray that prevents mineral buildups. Apply it to the inside of your shower door; your door should stay mineral free from then on. Make sure the room is well ventilated when you’re applying Rain-X, as the fumes could be dangerous in high concentrations. If you can’t apply a protective coating to your glass for whatever reason, make it a habit to regularly dry the inside of the door after showers with a squeegee.
