Tips For Making Your Shower Door Look Like Brand New
Shower doors almost always turn hazy because of two main reasons, soap scum and hard water. Several commercial cleaners are available in the market today and they all promise to remove the cloudiness. But why do you have to spend your hard earned cash on these cleaners when you can use basic items like baking soda and vinegar in your kitchen to get the same and sometimes even better results? These simple solution can take care of scummy metal handles and frames. However, if you are having problems with rust, check if you have an aluminum foil in your kitchen.
Hard Water – Acids can dissolve calcium salts that are in most hard water deposits. Limescale removers have sulfamic or phosphoric acid. However, lemon juice and vinegar contain the same properties. The former contains citric acid while the latter has acetic acid. Even though commercial cleaners are fast acting, lemon juice and vinegar can get rid of lime scale. However, they need to remain in contact for a long time. Using a spray bottle, spray any of the two condiments on your shower doors for 10 minutes. Use a squeegee to remove the solution and the cloudiness.
Soap Scum – Shampoo from your conditioner and shampoo that may have built up on the shower door and trim is different from mineral deposits. You can take care of that by using an abrasive cleaner. But instead of using scouring powder, why not consider using baking soda. Make a paste using water and baking soda. Apply it on the trim and the galls and use a non abrasive sponge and even your hand to scrub it. Before you rinse it with water, spray it with vinegar first and you will see how clean it is. It will not only deodorize the spot where you applied on to but also descale and clarify it. If you don’t have the time or don’t know what you are doing, you can always hire a company that offers shower door restoration in Brunswick County.
Rustry Trim – When in moist conditions like a shower stall, even the most expensive and durable chrome is at risk of turning rusty. But don’t worry. You can get rid of this easily. All you need to do is crumple a piece of tin foil and rub off the rust using it. Even though it will seem as if it is a magical approach, it is based on science. This method is ideal for chrome fixtures and rust pitted trim. However, this won’t work on items that have been severely corroded. You might need rust inhibitor, sandpaper, or even a new trim to address this problem.
Maintain Clarity – You can prevent your shower doors from turning hazy and making your bathroom look dirtier than it actually is by spraying water-vinegar solution on the glass. Leave it for five minutes and use a squeegee to clean it off. You won’t need to use this vinegar treatment very often if you make it a habit to squeegee the glass every time you take a shower. Also, try keeping a sponge in your shower. Wipe down the trim using regular shampoo on a weekly basis. If that does not work then use baking soda instead.
