How to clean the shower stall from stains, soap and lime residues: 5 home methods

The right shower cleaner also requires the right tools

Cleaning a shower enclosure is no easy task for those who like to keep things clean. After all, soap stains and limescale accumulate here very strongly. That's why you need to know what home remedies are best for cleaning your shower and other plumbing fixtures.

OBOZREVATEL has collected five simple recipes. Most of the ingredients for them are inexpensive and can be found in any store or pharmacy.

Vinegar spray

Vinegar can be used to care for plumbing in solution and in its pure form. But it is better to take not its culinary variety, but white - it will not leave stains and a strong smell on its own. To make a vinegar spray, mix it in equal proportions with water and pour the mixture into a spray bottle. All that remains is to spray it on the glass or other surface, leave it to work for 30 minutes, then rinse it off and wipe the surface dry.

Citric acid

Citric acid is good for removing limescale and can be used in a spray. To do this, dissolve a sachet of the product in half a litre of water. The method of use is similar to vinegar.


An ammonia solution will cope well with stubborn stains. To prepare it, add a tablespoon to a litre of water. Apply this liquid with a soft cloth and then wipe the glass or other surface thoroughly.

Hydrogen peroxide

Pharmacy hydrogen peroxide is a good tool not only for cleaning but also for disinfecting plumbing. Apply it undiluted with a cloth, then wipe the surface well with a dry cloth.

Glycerine glass cleaner

To prevent dirt from accumulating on the glass of the shower enclosure for longer, you can treat it with a glycerine-based product. To make it, you need to take

  • a glass of water;
  • 5 drops of ammonia;
  • 0.5 litres of liquid glycerin.

Mix all the ingredients thoroughly to get a homogeneous liquid. It is better to apply it to the glass after cleaning. Rub the product thoroughly over the surface. Sometimes the protective layer will need to be renewed.

Tips for cleaning bathroom glass

To remove stubborn stains, do not use the hard side of a sponge or metal brush. They will leave visible scratches. It is better to treat the stained area several times in a row.

Microfibre cloths are the best for applying cleaning agents and polishing glass. They do not leave a lint that needs to be removed.
