A glass shower enclosure is a good addition to your bathroom. It makes you feel excited heading to the shower each morning. You also have something to look forward to when you head home after a long day at work. Once you are inside, you can just isolate yourself and forget everything that is going on around you. But if you’re a busy mom like me, you will want to keep it clean and spend the least amount of time doing it.
Even if you spend quite a lot of money to have this enclosure installed, it is an investment worth the price. The enclosure needs to be properly cleaned and maintained just like any other item inside your bathroom. Here are some tips to guide you when cleaning.
- Use squeegees or microfibre cloths
When soap bubbles and water accumulate on the glass, it could pose health risks. You should not let this buildup happen. It can be easily removed with the help of a squeegee. This is like a windshield wiper that has a handle. This makes it easier for you to remove stains on the glass. If you don’t have one, you can use a small cloth just to wipe off the buildup of soap bubbles on the glass. It does not have to be done daily, but at least you do it once you notice stains and soap bubbles building up.
- Use a dryer sheet
If you want to instantly clean the glass, get a dryer sheet, damp it lightly and use it to scrub the entire glass shower enclosure. It easily wipes everything away. This is perfect if you don’t have enough time to clean everything. You can also add a cleaning agent to soften the fabric and allow the stains to be easily removed.
- Use an old shirt
If you have time to wipe the stains off, get a cleaning agent and put it in a spray bottle. Dilute it with water and use it to clean the glass enclosure. To remove the cleaning agent, use an old shirt. You can use the same shirt when cleaning up the enclosure in the future. A worn out shirt helps easily remove the stains out.
- Check the enclosure for problems
Aside from the cleanliness of the glass shower enclosure, you should also check it for any issues. There might be broken parts that have to be replaced. If the glass is cracked but is still intact, don’t wait for it to finally give in. Have someone come over and replace it. The same thing is true for the shower and other accessories found inside the enclosure. Maintenance is essential since it prevents more serious problems from happening.
It is nice to have a shower enclosure at home. Therefore, you need to make sure it will last for a long time.
