How to clean your Shower Screen
There are alot of glass cleaners available on the market that have been specifically designed to eliminate Soap scum, limescale, watermarks, mold, mildew, and discolouration from your shower, for example CLR, Better life Glass Cleaner, Bio-Clean water stain remover, mould killer and etc. These usually need to be applied, and left to do their work for a specified time before rinsing. Always follow the instructions carefully, ensure the shower room is well ventilated, and prevent anyone from using it until the product has been thoroughly rinsed off. There are now non-toxic biodegradable versions of these cleaners that are just as effective, but without containing any acids, chlorine, or bleach, are safer for those with children in the house, and even easier on the plumbing when rinsed off.
There are a few natural options to try:
- Fabric softener – apply to the shower screen, leave for 2 hours, then rinse off.
- Vinegar / Lemon Juice – use white vinegar from a spray bottle, and scrub the screen with a non-abrasive pad, rinse off with warm water.
- Baking soda – wet the glass and wipe the soda on with a cloth, rinse off after it has formed a paste.
Once your shower screen is back to the state that you want, invest in a small window-cleaner’s squeegee and persuade the rest of the household to simply squeegee the glass after they’ve showered (I find to rinse the shower screen after you take your shower, will leave the screen with a little water spot). Making this a part of everyone’s routine takes seconds, but prevents the watermarks and limescale from taking hold in the first place. In order to made this an easier process, there are alot of Nano product that can be applied on your shower screen, and help prevent water stain form in your shower glass. We find NanoArmor (www.nanoarmor.com.au) has the best product to prevent this to be happen, it is not cheap, but well worth it to keep your shower screen free of water mark for many years.
Alternatively, you can engage Fullworks Cleaners to cleaning your shower screen every 2 weeks or so. don’t let it out of control before you take action. Some old water stain just could not be removed.
