We bought a used home and the shower doors were caked with lime and soap scum. We couldn't afford to replace them right away and Lime Away didn't get all the scum off. I borrowed my husbands razor scraper from the garage and ran it over the scale and it all came off. Make sure to use new razor blades or you'll scratch the glass. They look like new.

Meguiar's Wax Cleaner and Meguiar's Wax
Thankfully, when my shower was installed I was told to use Meguiar's Wax Cleaner and Meguiar's Wax to keep the shower glass doors looking good. It has kept everything beautiful since then. It is for automobiles so you will find it in the automotive department at most discount stores. It makes cleaning a lot more fun.
My grandmother always cleaned her glass doors with lemon oil. It really cleans the soap residue. Put a little on a cleaning cloth and wipe the doors. Do not get any in the bottom of the tub (it will be too slippery!).

Buy a window squeegee and after each shower squeegee off the tile and shower doors. They will always be clean this way.

Tilex Soapscum Remover
If you have a lot of water marks or soap scum on the glass, spray Tilex soap scum remover and take a wet brillo pad and scrub the entire door, rinse well and dry with clean cloth. Works every time! MUST BE GLASS or it may scratch doors. Test in a hidden area.

After you clean the door, rub baby oil over it and it keeps the build up down for about 3 months.
