How do you keep shower doors clean without using commercial product.

I use distilled white vinegar. Mix a little bit in a spray bottle with some water. If the doors are really dirty, first make a paste of baking soda, white vinegar and a drop or two dish soap. Scrub. Rinse. Don't worry about the smell. Vinegar deodorizes and the smell disappears when it is dried. You can add a drop of essential oil to make it scented if you like. (08/14/2007)
Here's what works for me. First, use any product to really clean the doors. Then, get rid of bar soap (which contains waxes that cause the buildup) and use liquid soap (any kind). I use the big refills from Target or Walmart. Result? No scum buildup. Now, for the final thing. When you finish drying off with your towel, take 15 seconds (yes, it's that little time) to quickly wipe the water off the doors (no need to totally dry - just use your already damp towel). The difference is amazing - and all for just 15 seconds per shower.
Use a mix of vinegar with a few drops of lavender or tea tree oil in a spray bottle. It should get your doors really clean and tea tree oil is a disinfectant. (08/17/2007)
The water, vinegar, and dishsoap works great. Thank you. To keep it clean instead of a towel I use a squeegee. (08/21/2007)
