  • 10 months ago

How mesmerizing it is to have a look at the bathroom with a newly installed shower screen, crystal clear glass sparkling, but over time it gets dirty.

Mineral deposits, limescale, and soap scum make the shower screen look faded, ruins a perfectly good shower screen. Is cleaning the screen on regular basis enough to keep the quality maintained or is there more you should do? Even after cleaning the shower screen daily, it is hard to maintain the quality appearance of the shower screen and sparkle every day. Cleaning the screen seems easy but maintaining the quality is one of the toughest challenges to be performed.  Regular care is the key to a quality shower screen, brand as new, and here are some quick DIY tips and tricks you shouldn't miss out.

What you'll need? How to clean the shower screen?

The basic ingredient is vinegar. It is readily available in your household and very much effective in removing limescale and soap scum. Fill a spray bottle with vinegar, spray over the shower screen surface, and wipe clean. Rinse with warm water.

Vinegar may smell a little pungent, you can spray any essential oil of your choice for additional good smell.

Dont's?, Never use and abrasive detergents or cleaning solution,  water shouldn't be harsh and the cloth you are using shouldn't be rough or scratch the glass.

So, is this enough to keep the quality of the shower screen? The answer is NO. It is the easiest way to clean the screen but still, there is a lot to do. 

Things to remember for a sparkling shower screen. 

  • Don't let those minerals deposit or soap scum in the shower screen, this will help your screen to last longer.
  • Use a squeegee or microfibre cloths to wipe clean the shower screen. Squeegee is an easy option to quickly wipe down the water of the glass but microfibre cloths are able to reach the place, squeegee can't, and are easily accessible for corners and around handles.
  • Avoiding the use of liquid soap or bar soap containing talc on it. It buildups soap scum and mineral deposits.
  • Use good cleaning solutions for glass or you can DIY a solution, dish soap + hydrogen peroxide + rubbing alcohol. Use a spray bottle to apply the solution all over the surface properly, let it sit, and rinse with warm water.

Shower screen glass is only a part to clean, maintaining quality relates to the whole thing, showerheads, drainage covers, frames, etc. Use the same method for each part and shower every day with a feel of a new shower screen you have just got installed.
