How to clean your glass shower door?

White Vinegar:
Apply with a nonabrasive nylon scrubber. Gently scrub the glass and rinse. In between treatments, either wipe down the glass after your shower or use a squeegee on it. After you have done the initial cleaning, you can spray on full-strength vinegar once a week and rinse to maintain clean shower doors. Be sure to wear a mask and have as much ventilation as possible.

Liquid Toilet Bowl Cleaner:
Squeeze toilet bowl cleaner on glass doors and spread it around with a bristle brush. Rinse it completely off. Be sure to test a small area on your shower door, metal runner and bathtub to make sure that it is not caustic. Absolutely wear rubber gloves, wear a mask and ventilate bathroom.

Fabric Softener Sheets:
Wet a fabric softener sheet adequately and wipe down shower doors. Rinse thoroughly. It will also leave your hands feeling soft and clean.

A variation on the dryer-sheet cleaning method is to wipe the glass show doors with a dryer sheet that you do not wet. Then rinse.

One more variation is to add a little baking soda to a wet dryer sheet or two, scrub door and rinse.

Corn Starch:
Make a paste of cornstarch and water. Scrub glass doors and rinse.

Bear Glass has Options for a Frameless Shower

Glass Options for a Frameless Shower

At Bear Glass, we feel that a frameless shower can be the building block or the finishing “wow” for your bath decor. It can be a work of art or a frame for a beautifully tiled wall. Having knowledge of the wide range of glass options available plays an important role in bringing all design elements together, whether you are updating or completely remodeling a bath. No matter what glass option, building codes will require that the glass be tempered for safety.

Clear or Low-Iron Glass

  • Clear (tinged with green) 3/8-inch glass is one basic consideration. However, it’s not a good fit for many decors. For a look that doesn’t conflict with your color palette, consider low-iron glass. It’s “water clear” to blend with any color palette. If you are concerned about upkeep with a clear or low-iron glass, look into Shower Guard glass from Guardian Industries. It permanently repels water spots and hard-water stains—no more squeegee after every shower.

Sandblasted, Bronze or Smoke Glass

  • There are so many different vessel sinks available. If your have a sandblasted, bronze or smoke glass vessel selected for your bath, you can coordinate 3/8-inch acid-etched, bronze or smoke glass for your shower for a simple, elegant look that provides privacy as well.

Textured Glass

  • Add interest to your frameless shower with textured glass. This is 3/8-inch cast glass from sources like Pilkington. Master Carre, Stippolyte, Rain, Solar Rain (water clear), Storm, Glue Chip and Machine Antique (water clear) are all available in 3/8-inch thickness. Although you can view these online, you will want to see them in person at a local glass supplier to get a good feel for their pattern, obscurity and light transmission.

Etched-Look Glass

  • Etched glass brings beautiful patterns to glass. However, it really is not practical for an application exposed to soap, shampoo, conditioners and the oil in your skin. DecoTherm can put a butterfly into the center of your door or a field of flowers up to your neck with a ceramic frit process that emulates etched glass.

Stained Glass Overlay Glass

  • The look of stained glass is not out of reach for a frameless shower, when you look at Stained Glass Overlay. Mylar film in colors and textures, lead, bevels and jewels are applied to 3/8-inch tempered clear glass. The color and design possibilities are virtually endless. At the same time, any design can be modified for your bathroom window.

Fused, Beveled and Jewel-Accented Glass

  • Details make a difference. Perhaps you shopped all over for fused glass tiles to accent a vanity area, wall sconces trimmed with little jewels or a hanging chandelier with teardrop bevels. Fused glass tiles, jewels and bevels can all be added to a frameless shower using ultraviolet (UV) tech adhesives and a UV curing light.

Kiln-Formed Art Glass

  • Kiln-formed art glass is yet another beautiful option. A sheet of 3/8-inch clear or low-iron glass is melted over a form to create a rich, embossed pattern. A city skyline, waves, swirls, bubbles and flowers are among hundreds of design possibilities using kiln-formed art glass.
