Bathroom glass doors using for a period of time often accumulate a lot of limescale, not only affect the appearance, but also affect the light transmission. People will always be selective ignorance, and will not look carefully when taking a bath. Often in a sunny afternoon, taking a closer look will have a big shock.
In addition to mastering effective ways to remove dirt, we can also choose glass shower doors with nano-coating which makes the water and grime run freely from the glass surface. This coated glass tends to clean better. According to the stubborn degree of limescale and the formation of time, the method used to clean limescale is always different.
Here are 4 ways I learned from SL4U shower which could help you clean up limescale .
Tools prepared as follows: an electric dish-washing brush, a spray bottle, citric acid descaling agent, and a fish scale cloth.
Step1 Pour the citric acid descaling agent into the spray bottle
First, Pour the citric acid descaling agent into the spray bottle. My spray bottle is about 250ml. I poured 20g descaling agent and then mixed with water well. We recommend you use heat water, which has better cleaning effect than mold in air vents.
Step2 Spray the citric acid solution on the dirty glass
After that, spray the citric acid solution on the dirty glass. If the dirt is not particularly strong, you can proceed directly to the next step. If the dirt is more serious, you can leave it for 5-10 minutes to let the reaction be more thorough. When spraying, remember to spray as much as possible and do not miss some blocks of surface, which will directly affect the next step of the cleaning effect. By the way, please remember to wear gloves and a mask when operating. After all, it is an acid solution and it is not good to get on the hands and inhale the respiratory tract.
Step3 Start scrubbing
After that, you can start cleaning with the brush. I use the electric dish-washing brush. The bristles are hard and the cleaning power is good. But the kind of wash brush is useless, because the bristles are too soft to wash completely clean, so you can not try.
When cleaning, move back and forth, somewhat similar to polishing. If the glass has less dirt, the speed of movement can be faster. At the same time, there is a little trick. Because the design of the brush head is for pots and pans, there will be a little curvature. So when cleaning flat glass, you can press the brush in the direction of the glass slightly harder. So that the bristles fit better, cleaning effect is also better.
Cleaning glass shower panel can be a breeze with a few simple methods. One effective approach is to mix equal parts white vinegar and water in a spray bottle. Spray the solution generously onto the glass surface and let it sit for a few minutes. The acidity of the vinegar helps dissolve soap scum and hard water stains. Afterward, scrub the glass with a non-abrasive sponge or brush. For stubborn spots, a paste made from baking soda and water can be applied. Gently rub the paste on the problem areas using a soft cloth or sponge.
Step4 Rinse with clean water and dry the glass
Afterwards, rinse with plenty of water to wash away the dirt and citric acid solution, preferably with hot water. The freshly rinsed glass will hang with water droplets, so the effect will not look too obvious.
Finally, use the fish scale cloth to dry the glass. I believe that many people have fish scale cloth at home. Microfiber material was made into a diamond pattern lattice look, friction and the cleaning power is greatly enhanced. Using it to wipe the glass, faucet and other hardware can not be more suitable than the general wipe. The fish scale cloth not only dries the water on the glass, but also takes away the local residual stains together. After wiping dry, you can see how clean the glass really is.
As long as I follow these steps, I can quickly see the results. But cleaning up the dirt on glass door still took me some time, so I think in order to keep the glass shiny, you could rinse daily in the shower. And at the same time in the purchase of the shower door, choose a glass door with a coating, which will allow you to clean up easily.
