The Best Cleaner for Shower Doors

What is the secret to cleaning and shinning glass doors for a shower? I clean and do not get to squeegee them after a shower. I have tried the stuff you use on car windshields, oiled them to repel the water, etc. Help.

Use soft scrub! Put a little soft scrub paste on a regular dishwashing sponge and gently scrub it all over the door. Then I let it dry up and rub it off with dry paper towels. Then just use regular windex to give the glass a final shine!

Can someone tell me what is a good cleaner, store bought or homemade, for shower doors? I hate cleaning them but there is got to be something to make it easier to get off that filmy white stuff.

I have just discovered that Magic Erasers work really well. Need a little elbow grease, but I the last time I saw my shower that clean was the day we built! They are a type of foam that you moisten and then rub over the surface. I cleaned a section a day so it didn't seem to be so hard. (06/30/2006)

I find that baking soda, applied with a damp sponge, will clean just about anything in the tub and shower, without much hassle. The Mr. Clean Magic Erasers (which are now available in generic at many dollar stores) work quite well, too, but they are not as cost-effective. (06/30/2006)

When you finish showering, wipe down the doors and shower with an old bath towel. Take two towels with you to shower, one for you and an old one for the shower. Keeps your shower clean! (06/30/2006)

While in the shower clean the walls off with regular hair shampoo. It will cut the film on the walls and you'll come out clean, too!

Nice job to give kids to do with a sponge, they have a good time playing in the water and helping mommy at the same time!

Dawn dish detergent, a squirt in the sink with water gets everything in the bathroom sparkling, even mirrors. For hard soap scum, a small squirt on a damp cloth full strength melts it away. By far the best cleaner I've ever used! (07/10/2006)

Hot vinegar! Heat in a measuring cup in the microwave to almost boiling. Carefully pour hot liquid into a spray bottle and spray on your doors or curtains. Let it sit for a few minutes (clean the rest of the bathroom), and then wipe off. The trick is to heat it though so it "melts" the scum away. (10/27/2006)

I tried several of the suggestions without complete success. Then my wife bought a commercial product at WalMart called C (Calcium) L (Lime) R (Rust), applied it with the an "eraser" sponge and absolutely cleaned the shower glass down to the original, new condition. (11/27/2008)
