I have a new OCD cleaning trick I’m way too excited about. Unfortunately because I was so pessimistic about it actually working (given the week I’ve had) I don’t have a before picture. But anyone who has the same problem can appreciate the after.
For the first time in years I have glass shower doors instead of a curtain and it completely slipped my mind to purchase a shower squeegee until a month and a half’s worth of hard water buildup and soap scum residue had cloaked our doors. I read online to mix 1 cup of warm vinegar with 1 cup of Dawn and use a scrub brush to get the residue off. Ultimately here’s what I ended up using:
1 tbsp warm vinegar (microwaved for about 20 seconds)
1 tbsp generic dish soap
Applied with the scrub side of a sponge
I used a smaller ratio in case it didn’t work and it was still enough to cover both doors. Afterwards I rinsed it off and used my handy shower squeegee. Now they look as good as new!
