How to keep the adjustable bi-fold shower door clean
Why is the adjustable bi-fold shower door dirty?
When water comes into contact with limestone or chalk deposits, hard water is rich in minerals such as calcium and magnesium carbonate. When hard water is mixed with soap, it will leave a stain called soap scum on the shower door glass. Glass is porous, and as time passes, those hard water minerals will penetrate into the glass and cause corrosion. Keeping it clean is the best way to prevent any long-term or difficult-to-remove water spots.
Tips for cleaning and maintaining shower glass
Choose coated glass
If you want to buy shower door glass for your bathroom, choose a coating that protects the glass from hard water and soap. If your shower door glass is not coated, you need to clean it more frequently.
Vinegar and water
Just mix white vinegar with three parts of distilled water and put it in a spray bottle to store the solution easily. If soap scum or hard water stains are difficult to remove, spray water and vinegar on the glass and leave it on the door for five minutes. Then rinse the solution with warm distilled water, or wipe with a lint-free towel, rag or paper towel.
There are several commercial glass cleaners on the market that can clean vinegar stains and the water may not be removed. You can find these at the local grocery store. When using these solutions for cleaning, consider wearing gloves to protect the skin from chemicals.
Baking soda and vinegar
If vinegar and water are not attractive to you, you can try to make baking soda and vinegar into a paste. Use about half a cup of baking soda and enough white vinegar to make a paste. Add vinegar slowly to prevent the solution from becoming too watery. Wipe the sticker on the glass of the shower door, let it stand for 10 to 15 minutes, then wipe it with a soft cloth or lint-free paper towel, and then rinse off the glass of water. After cleaning, make sure that the shower door is properly dried.
