Do you cringe when you see your shower doors and rails covered in limescale and mineral deposits? If you’ve neglected to clean them up like me, now’s the time to tackle the job with two simple ingredients. Here is a step by step guide on how to effectively clean shower doors and rails.
*years of neglect
When we first moved into our house, there was already buildup on the bathroom door frame and tracks. I don’t know how to clean it and maybe a bit lazy, I just ignored it. But recently I realized that I can’t ignore it anymore. So, I embarked on a cleaning journey, determined to bring the shine back to my shower doors.
Before diving into the process and results, let me share an overview of the task at hand with an earlier photo. Although it does not fully explain the extent of the buildup, it will give you an idea of the challenge you faced.
**Step 1: Gather supplies
To effectively clean shower doors and rails, you only need two simple ingredients: white vinegar and baking soda. These homemade staples are powerful and gentle enough to tackle tough stains and deposits without harsh chemicals.
**Step Two: Sprinklng baking soda
Start by sprinkling a generous amount of baking soda on the bathroom door tracks. The alkaline properties of baking soda help remove stubborn dirt and deposits.
**Step three: pour vinegar
Next, pour white vinegar over the baking soda. When the vinegar reacts with the baking soda, it creates a bubbling reaction that helps loosen and lift buildup.
**Step 4: Let it sit
Leave the vinegar and baking soda mixture for 15 to 20 minutes. This residence time allows the ingredients to penetrate the dirt and facilitate its removal.
**Step 5: Scrub and Wipe
After the time has passed, take a small brush or toothbrush and scrub the tracks well. The baking soda and vinegar mixture should have loosened the deposits, making them easier to remove. Once the tracks are clean, use a clean cloth or sponge to wipe off the residue.
**Step 6: Rinse and dry
Finally, rinse the tracks with water to remove any remaining residue. Use a clean towel or cloth to completely dry the larvae.
**Step 7: Admire the results
Step back and admire the sparkling clean shower doors and rods. You’ll be amazed at the transformation you can achieve with just two simple ingredients!
To keep shower doors and walkways looking their best, make regular cleaning part of your routine. A quick wipe with a vinegar and water solution or a mild soap solution after each shower can help prevent buildup and maintain cleanliness.
Now that you know the secrets to effortless bathroom door cleaning, it’s time to say goodbye to limescale and mineral deposits. Embrace the natural power of vinegar and baking soda and enjoy a beautifully clean shower space !
