How to Remove Soap Scum From A Glass Shower Door
Urban Designs 5.21.13    
Soap scum is a white build-up consisting of minerals from the water, dirt, bacteria, and sloughed-off skin. The very best way to keep soap scum off glass shower doors is to prevent it from happening in the first place by wiping the glass completely dry after every shower. But who has the time for that? So try this combination next time you're cleaning:
Solution to Soap Scum:
  • 2 teaspoons borax
  • 1 teaspoon Castile soap?
  • 3/4 cup white vinegar?
  • 1 1/2 cup hot water?
  • 10 drops tea tree oil

  1. Combine the ingredients in a spray bottle and shake.
  2. Spray mixture on glass and allow to penetrate. 
  3. Follow with a sponge or brush.
  4. Rinse off and dry.

  • The best time to clean soap scum is right after taking a warm shower. The heat and steam aid in loosening the scum and allow a bit more ease when scrubbing.
  • Tea tree oil is a natural fungicide and carries many antiseptic properties. It will kill most of the bacteria found in the soap scum and help prevent growth.
  • Dislike the smell of vinegar…fear not! The vinegar smell will fade within a few hours of cleaning.
