I know of 2 things that work REALLY well..
use a solution of CLR ( Calcium, Lime Rust) and water in a bucket, ( use gloves) soak the glass door/ tile walls really well, let sit for a few minutes & scrub off with a 3m scrubby ; My Mother had a Maid service in the 80's in Vegas ,.... REALLY HARD water & we used that. Then, wipe the walls & door with lemon oil to help protect the glass from build up; you'll have to repeat every time you clean but, it won't build up & it'll come off easy after the first time. Good luck

The lemon oil must smell really good, too!

Good to know!

I live where we have really hard water and it seems like anytime water hits anything it turns it red and it is impossible to get off. I have discovered something called "the works". I get it at the dollar store. spay it on and the soap scum, red stain, etc. GONE!! I have spent months trying to get my shower clean and nice looking and then I found this stuff and it looks brand new.

I am so happy. Even shines up the faucets. Hope this works for you.♥♥
this is what I use too. Works great

Whenever I soak our shower head in vinegar I also use it to clean the shower walls and door.

There are great reviews for the Water Conditioning Magnet being put on water pipes. No water spots or build up and water tastes better. Most five star hotels have them installed. Now they are at the price for homeowners to have. About $80 a pipe.

CAUTION! Magnetic water scams are all around and have been for years. Check them out. Just go to Scam Busters - magnetic water scams and you will find many, one example out of Kansas City is Nikkon. There is testimony from scientists in Europe, Asia and U.S. from universities and testing laboraties as to these not working and several have lawsuits against them for fraud. :(
