The hardest thing about maintaining a bathroom in Sydney usually involves cleaning the shower or bathtub. Many persons will tell you that while mopping the floor, wiping the sink and scrubbing the toilet is tedious, it doesn’t compare to the laborious and time-intensive cleaning that’s required for keeping a shower or bathtub spotlessly clean. However, frameless shower screens tell a different story. Anyone who has a frameless shower screen usually boasts about its low maintenance quality. At Panorama Shower Screens, while we’re extremely proud of the clean and modern look of our frameless shower screen, we must admit that it’s easy cleaning quality is undeniably its best feature. After all, what good is a bathroom feature if you can’t maintain or easily keep it clean? Luckily for us and for anyone who possesses a frameless shower screen, cleaning it is a breeze. But, how do you clean it? Furthermore, how often do you clean it? These questions and many more will be answered in this article, the Panorama Shower Screens’ guide to cleaning your frameless shower screen.

Why are frameless glass shower screens low-maintenance?

  • Lack of frame – the lack of groovers from a frameless shower screen means that there are fewer opportunities for soap, grime and water to get trapped and build up mildew and bacteria.
  • Clean glass screen – the clean and clear glass screen allows you to easily spot water markets, soap scum and other debris and then easily and quickly clean it.

Natural cleaners

While there are many options for cleaning your frameless shower screen, the popularity of natural alternatives has been steadily rising. Cost-effective and free of harsh chemicals, it’s quite easy to clean your frameless glass shower screen using common household products. Here are a few alternatives for naturally cleaning your shower screen.

  • Vinegar and water
    • A simple solution of 1 part vinegar and 3 parts water can effectively remove soap scum and water spots from your door. Pour the solution into a spray bottle, spray onto the dirty areas and leave for 5 minutes. Then, rinse with warm water or lightly rub with newspaper to remove the stains.
  • Lemon and baking soda 
    • Dipping the cut side of half a lemon in baking soda and then rubbing it on the side of a glass door will create a sudsy and effective foam that removes build-up. Once the glass is clean, rinse with water. The lemon-fresh scent is much more pleasant than vinegar and some commercial cleaners.

Commercial cleaners

Commercial cleaners are extremely effective and do not require mixing concoctions. With tough stains caused by weeks of zero maintenance, a commercial cleaner may be required and can make your cleaning job much easier. We recommend pursuing your local grocery store aisle for as cleaner, or for commercial properties, investing in high-performance glass cleaning products. Depending on the solution, you may have to spray your cleaner and leave it on the glass for several minutes or rinse it immediately. Ensure you read the instructions thoroughly and do not mix chemicals or cleaners together. We recommend that you wear gloves and open your bathroom windows to prevent the scent and chemical concentration in the air.

PSS everyday tips!

While the previous two methods are the most effective and common ways of cleaning your frameless shower screen, there are a few tips you can follow that will help you reduce the amount of time and effort you put into cleaning. While frameless shower screens are the most low-maintenance options for showers or bathtubs, there are some simple guidelines that you should follow.

  • Leave your shower door open after showering to prevent condensation and the build-up of mildew. Similarly, leave your bathroom windows open as much as possible.
  • Always clean after the last person has showered. Steam from showering will loosen any grime and build-up and make your cleaning much easier and more efficient.
  • Many times your shower installer will provide you with a squeegee. Use it every time you shower to remove build-up from the screen. If you don’t have one, you can purchase one from a local store.
