5 TIPS FOR
REMOVING SCUM FROM
GLASS SHOWER DOORS
Soap scum is the nemesis
of everyone who enjoys
the beauty of clean, clear glass.
You may be one of the best
housekeepers in the world
and still find yourself dealing
with soap residue.
This frustrating substance
is the result of fats and waxes
in the soap, mixing with minerals
in the water, to make
a sticky film.
Soap residue buildup is most

of soap residue.

and let it sit, just like you would
the vinegar solution.

which is good for getting through

leave scratches in the glass.
If there is a large amount of soap
scum, then you may need to work
through several layers, since the
cleaner might not be able to
penetrate through all of the layers
Letting the solution sit on the
surface for a few minutes helps
it to soak in deeper, but that might
not be enough.
