After it's cleaned, rub it with an unused dryer sheet. Helps prevent soap scum from building up again. Then just squeegee after each shower.

The best I've used is bought in the paint dept. called Krud Kutter. I buy it in the gallon jug and dilute it or use it full strength if needed. It's all the cleaning product I need and one jug last me all year. We use it to clean everything. And it's good for the environment, safe for kids and pets, and you don't need to wear gloves, and still works great.

You can also just use a towel to wipe it down after each shower. With this method you also have to have a place to hang the towel so it dries during the day.

I do this every day. In addition to preventing unwanted buildup, it stretches just about my entire body. Two for the price of one!
That is exactly what I do. Squeegy and wipe down everyday. It's a pain at the time, but well worth it. You will never have to use elbow grease to clean your glass shower doors.

I only use liquid soap, so there is no soap scum or messy soap dish.

I have switched to liquid bath soap too and find it a lot easier to keep clean. I will use Scrubbing bubbles after a shower and let it do the work :thumbup:

I just remembered hearing Kirstie Alley on Oprah telling Oprah that she cleaned houses in high school and she learned a lot from the rich families she cleaned for. One family cleaned everything with Vodka! Cheap Vodka! It doesn't smell, doesn't stain and it sterilizes! Just a thought! :-)

Kaboom for the bathroom. Spray it on and when it turns white, wipe, rinse and done.
