Clean, Shine, And Protect Your Frameless Glass Shower

by Christopher Snyder

A frameless glass shower is a valuable and attractive addition to your bathroom. Not only does it make your shower more appealing, but the open and airy shower makes your bathroom appear larger. Due to the lack of door hinges and tracks, cleaning a frameless shower is easier than the traditional style of shower stalls. However, cleaning, shining, and protecting the glass can be challenging. Here are a few tips to help maintain your frameless glass shower.


It may seem excessive to wipe down the glass each time you take a shower, but it is helpful in preventing water spots and the heavy buildup of soap scum. Thankfully, a squeegee tool can reduce the time it takes to clean the shower each day.

After your shower, run the rubber end of the squeegee tool down one section of glass at a time. Wipe the water and soap from the rubber blade using a dry towel. Continue swiping the glass until the entire interior of your shower is clean.


If you notice water spots or stubborn areas of soap buildup, create a simple glass cleaning using 1 cup of white vinegar and 1 cup of distilled water.

Add the ingredients to a spray bottle and spray a generous amount onto the glass. Allow to sit for a few minutes before using your squeegee tool to remove.

For heavy areas of soap scum, use a soft cleansing cream. Apply the cream to a traditional kitchen sponge and dampen under the shower faucet. Lightly scrub the cleaning cream onto the areas of your glass with soap scum and rinse off using warm water. Be sure to use the squeegee tool to remove leftover water from the glass. This will reduce your risk of water spots.


Many homeowners will forget to squeegee their glass shower a few times, which can cause water spots and soap scum to develop. While surprising to learn, a popular automotive windshield product can help protect your glass shower from future buildup.

Visit the automotive section of your local grocery or discount store and purchase the windshield water repellant spray. After cleaning your glass shower, dry it off with a clean towel and wait a few minutes. Then, spray the windshield water repellant directly onto your glass shower walls and door. Use a microfiber pad to wipe the glass, applying the waterrepellant spray evenly across the glass without it dripping.

Once dry, the water repellant will cause the water to bead up, allowing you to quickly squeegee it away without the worry of spots and soap scum.

Maintaining your frameless glass shower does not have to be stressful. With these simple solutions, you can clean, shine, and protect the glass. For more information, contact companies like Aladdin's Glass & Screen Products Inc.
