Skip the Chemicals to Clean Your Shower Doors

April 25, 2011 | By | Comments (1)

Keeping your shower doors soap-scum-free is one of the biggest bathroom cleaning challenges. Luckily, you don’t have to reach for the chemicals in order to keep them clean. Instead try two common household items—a dryer sheet and lemon oil.

First, use a dryer sheet to remove the soap scum that is already built up. Add a few drops of water to a used sheet and start scrubbing. Once it’s gone through the dyer a fabric softener sheet is just abrasive enough to remove the scum with out scratching the glass. Plus, you’re giving that dryer sheet new life before it’s tossed.

 

Second, to prevent soap scum from coming back, put a few drops of lemon essential oil on a reusable cloth and wipe down your shower doors. Not only will your bathroom smell fresh, but you won’t be pouring nasty chemicals down your drain or getting them on your skin when you shower.
