Cleaning shower glass


We have an issue with our shower glass constantly getting full of mildew and grime. We do all the necessary post-shower things.....spray, squeegee, etc. But, we can't seem to get the sucker clean. Anyone have any advice of cleaning shower glass?

Cleaning shower glass


Is there is an exhost vent that runs outside on the ceiling?
Ever had your water tested to see if it needs treatment? It will go a long way to make your job easer to check this out.
Scrubbing Bubbles has worked for me.
Clorox tub and tile with Teflon also works great and fills in some of the tiny scratches where mold loves to grow.

Yes, we have an exhaust vent that runs outside. We haven't had the water tested though.

Tried the Clorox to no avail, but have not tried the scrubbing bubbles.

Minerals in the water can leave all kinds of stains.

Try baking soda. Maybe some vinegar too.

Vinegar works pretty well on the mineralization and the soap scum.
