Get Your Shower Screen Super Clean: 3 Everyday Household Products

Your glass shower screen does much more than just prevent water spraying all over your bathroom when you use the shower. It also looks great and helps even the smallest bathroom feel larger when compared to a shower curtain. However, with use shower screens can become covered in residue from shampoo and body wash, leaving them looking grimy and unpleasant. If you want to avoid using harsh chemicals to clean the glass in your shower unit, you don't need to buy any specialist products. Below are 3 everyday products which you will find around your home that can be used to make your shower screen sparkle. 

Baking soda

Baking soda can be used to quickly clean your shower screen. Firstly, you need to turn on your shower for a few moments and direct the spray of water onto the shower screen. Apply a small amount of baking soda to a soft cloth and rub it in a circular motion on the screen. As the baking soda mixes with the water, it should form a paste. Once the entire screen is covered in the paste, you should rinse it with water to remove it. This should remove even the toughest grime from your shower screen.


You can use vinegar for much more than dressing a salad. Because it is acidic, vinegar will kill and remove bacteria and mould from your shower screen as well as dissolving dirt and grim. It is also really easy to apply and will help to deodorise your shower. You simply need to pour some vinegar into a spray bottle before spraying it onto the shower screen. Then dip a soft cloth in warm water and wipe away the vinegar. You should now be left with a perfectly clean shower screen.

Fabric softener

The grime created by soap scum is one of the most difficult things to remove from a glass shower screen. If you are struggling to remove it using other methods, fabric softener may provide a solution. Mix 1 part fabric softener with 4 parts warm water in a small bowl. Dip a non-abrasive cloth into the solution and wipe down your shower screen before rinsing it using your shower unit. This should lift and remove any soap stains from the glass.
