There is nothing that will take your bathroom to the next level like a glass shower enclosure. It makes your bathroom look more modern and even helps it look larger. Something that some people struggle with when it comes to their glass shower enclosure is water spots. Water spots can be an eyesore, and no one wants to see them all over their beautiful enclosure. There are several ways that you can combat water spots though. M & M Glass is here to share our best tips to help you keep your glass shower enclosure free from water spots.
What Causes Water Spots on Shower Glass?
For most people, the cause of the water spots on their glass shower enclosure is a mixture of soap scum and hard water. When you have hard water, that means that your water has a high mineral content. Minerals like magnesium and calcium start to build up over time on your glass and leave behind a solid wall of murky grossness. When you have chosen a beautiful frameless, glass shower enclosure for your bathroom, this is a problem that you definitely don’t want to have. Here are some tips to help you get this problem under control.
– Wipe Glass After Use: One of the most effective ways to get rid of this problem is to wipe the glass down after you shower. This can be done easily with the help of a squeegee. You simply run the squeegee across the glass where you see water and it is no longer a problem for you. You can also use a microfiber towel to do the same job. Once you get used to it, you will hardly notice you’re doing it.
– Best Glass Cleaners: There are several different types of cleaners that you can use to help you remove hard water and soap scum from your glass shower enclosure. You can also make some at home using baking soda, vinegar, dawn dish soap, lemon juice and more. All of them can be an effective way to get the results you are looking for.
– Air Circulation: While it might not eliminate the problem completely, having some air circulation in the bathroom while you are showering can be helpful in keeping water spots from forming on your shower enclosure. Turn on the vent and keep it on during and after you shower to remove some of the moisture from the bathroom. As soon as you are down showering, you will want to open the bathroom door as well to help circulate the air through the space.
