Cleaning Shower Glass

What is a good cleaner for the shower stall glass? Have really hard water and the glass has lots of spots. What is a good cleaner?

Tried a couple of things but spots remain.

Thanks,

Gary

For hard water deposits, the best I've found is CLR.

Jelmar | We Clean More Than You Think - Home

If you want a home remedy, a little vinegar will also dissolve the calcium deposits.

We wipe the shower down daily to prevent spots and to keep the excess moisture out of the RV, have you tried this to combat the water spots?

I've had good success with Limeaway and Magic Eraser ( not at the same time).

For lighter duty or maintenance, try a dryer sheet, does a good job very quickly

We squeegee and then finish with a towel. Less dry time for the towel that way.

use vinegar...it's a natural acid that cuts through the mineral deposits that cause water spots...

once you clean the spots off......we use one of the auto spray on wipe off polishes and squeegee the glass after each shower. I only have to apply the auto spray product once a year as long as we squeegee after showers and don't leave water on the glass and/or tile.

Bar Keepers Friend liquid works well. But as a side note we changed from bar type bath soap to liquid bath soap. And the reduction in the amount of hard water spots and soap scum in the shower is incredible. Wouldn't believe it unless I saw it myself. Shower stays much much cleaner, we are full timers we spend most of our time in the Tucson area which has very hard water. Just FYI

I agree 10x! The Bar Keepers Friend also does the trick on the anodized aluminum shower frame. Like you, I switched to "soft soap" and squeegee the walls and glass after every shower.

Bleach and citrus cleaners are the ones to not to use too much of in an RV. They are not too good for the pipes. Other than that it's pretty much what you would use in a S&B.

I keep a squeegee handy and squeegee the walls and shower door. That accomplishes two things. It keeps the evaporating moisture down, and keeps the water spots off. Once a week DW uses Windex.

It is what it is, and then it is what you make of it.

Ditto. Been doing that from day 1.
