The shower is often a feature of any bathroom, large or small: Shiny, clean and inviting. Eventually, however, over time, the shine can dull a little.
Hazy shower doors can detract from the pristine bathroom aesthetic. Here are a few helpful hints on how to keep your shower doors looking brand new and protected.
What Causes Shower Doors to Become Dirty?
There are a few reasons that our bathroom doors start to look worse for wear. Like everything else, they need maintenance. Glass can become damaged from just water, especially if it is hard water, which contains minerals that seep into the porous glass, causing corrosion.
The stains and soap scum you often see on shower doors result from the combination of hard water and soap. Of course, another problem in bathrooms is mildew, which finds the damp, warm corners of your bathroom the perfect place to grow.
Attending to mildew with an appropriate solution is the best way to deal with it as soon as you see it. There are plenty of commercial solutions to solving your hazy shower door problems.
There are, however, many home remedies too. We take a look at tricks and tips to clean your shower; keeping is shiny as the day you got it.

Although we live in a culture where anything and everything seems to be available and quick fixes are the order of the day. The age-old remedies used by our grandparents are just as effective and less harmful to the environment. You can find most in your kitchen cupboard.

2. Lemon Juice and Vinegar
These two ingredients used separately or together will keep limescale caused by hard water at bay. Spray onto the shower doors, then clean off with some brown paper if you want to see real magic.
3. Tinfoil Isn't Just for Turkeys
A crumpled piece of tin foil is the perfect solution for removing rust from your shower trim. As long as it isn't severe corrosion, a few rubs on the damaged area will work wonders.
