Soap Scum on Shower Glass

I love those lovely glass showers but they don’t look so great when covered with soap scrum.

I have discovered a few nifty ways of combatting this scourge:

1. Make a paste of bi-carbonate of soda and water. Using a soft sponge or cloth, wipe the glass to remove scum. Before you rinse you can also spray with vinegar for an extra sparkle and then rinse with clean water.

2. Surprisingly, pantyhose rolled into a ball makes a brilliant micro fibre cleaning cloth for shower glass as do shower puffs (see picture below). Just wet and wipe glass and rinse.

3. Another option is putting a good amount of table salt into a container and dipping a damp cloth into the salt and wiping down the glass and then rinsing with clean water.

The best preventative measure is to get a squeegee and remove water off glass every time you use the shower. The glass dries clean and a few minutes every day will mean less build up and less frequent cleaning.
