Cleaning Tips For Your New Frameless Glass Shower

A frameless glass shower enclosure is a great addition to your bathroom. This will not only make your bathroom look more open and streamlined, but the overall design is easier to clean and maintain. Of course, some cleaning will be necessary to prevent heavy buildup of soap scum on your glass over time. This guide will teach you how to clean and maintain your new frameless shower.


Prevention is the best way to fight heavy residue on the glass of your shower. While it may require a bit of work, simple cleaning each time you use your shower can reduce cleaning stress in the future.

Consider hanging a squeegee tool inside your shower. This tool features a rubber blade, which can quickly and effortlessly clean away water and soapy residue form the glass and tile inside your shower.

While still inside the shower, run the squeegee blade down a single section of the glass at a time. Wipe the rubber blade clean with a towel before running the blade down another section. Continue swiping and wiping the rubber blade until you have cleaned off each part of your shower. Make sure to squeegee both the glass surround and the tile.


A squeegee tool can help prevent soap scum, but a microfiber cloth can help you shine the glass surrounding your towel. Microfiber cloths are lint-free, so there is less risk of lint residue and streaks on your glass. In most cases, the cloths can be used to remove water and soapy residue without any cleaning solutions.

Every few days, run the microfiber cloth over the interior of your glass to remove moisture and soapy residue. Then, use a second microfiber cloth to dry the glass surfaces.

The cloth is capable of cleaning and shining your frameless glass shower in a stress-free, natural manner.

Deep Cleaning

If you want your glass to shine, a more involved cleaning can be completed each week. Using a solution containing water and white vinegar is best.

In a spray bottle, combine 1 cup of water with 1 cup of white vinegar. Shake the bottle to mix the ingredients before spraying the solution onto a microfiber cloth. Run the cloth along the glass walls of your shower, and then dry with another cloth.

Vinegar's acidic properties are capable of eating through heavy soap scum without using chemicals that can be toxic and hazardous to your health. This natural solution offers antibacterial agents, as well, which is helpful for sanitizing and disinfecting your shower.
