Cleaning plastic shower doors is easy.

Plastic shower doors are both affordable and durable, making them a common bathroom addition in many homes. Through daily use of the shower, the plastic doors will become soiled with soap scum, hard water spots, dirt, body oils and other common elements. Since the plastic is typically transparent or semi-transparent, all of this buildup quickly makes your shower look dirty and uncared for. Luckily, cleaning the plastic shower doors is an easy procedure requiring few tools or supplies.

Step 1

Pour 2 cups of water, 1/4 cup of white vinegar and 2 tbsp. of dish soap into a spray bottle. Shake to combine.

Step 2

Spray the shower doors with this solution, then wait 5 seconds.

Step 3

Scrub the plastic doors with a nylon sponge to remove the residue.

Step 4

Rinse off the doors with the shower head or a wet rag.

Step 5

Dry the shower doors with a towel. Dry the plastic doors after each use of the shower to minimize new residue growth.
