Moving really puts your housecleaning on display! It highlights the areas that you do not prioritize or deem unimportant. Ouch. One of my low priority places is the glass shower door in my master bedroom. The main reason it is low priority is only Nate and I see it. Even when we have a house full of guests it is not used by anyone else. Since Nate’s expectations for cleanliness are even lower than mine, it definitely doesn’t get cleaned as often as it should. But when you are trying to sell a house and the master bathroom is one of the most important areas, the shower door quickly got moved towards the top of the list.
Over the years I have tried many different products in attempt to get the glass doors “see-though clear” again. A few have kind-of worked, some not at all. One surprise success was using a dryer sheet instead of a sponge.
But, behold! I have finally found the best solution, thanks to my Grandma! She has this magical concoction that does wonders on glass!
Here is the recipe:
Granny D’s Wonderful Glass Cleaner
1 Cup rubbing alcohol
3 TBSP CLEAR or Pure Ammonia
1 TBSP dishwashing liquid soap (I use the original Dawn)
1 gallon of water
Put soap in last as it foams.
Since I forgot (maybe on purpose 🙂 ) I do not have a before picture. I did find one corner that we missed to give you an idea of the status of the door before we cleaned it. Look at the clarity of Hannah’s pant leg for a reference point. Yuck.
Now look at how clear Hannah is after we (by ‘we’ I mean my mom) used the magical stuff. We also used a Magic Eraser (generic) to seal the deal. It may take one or two go arounds depending on how clean it is to start, but I am confident you will be very happy with the results.
I also use this on my windows, inside and out, and on mirrors. If your glass doors are giving you a headache, try this recipe.
