Soap scum is made up of talc, body oils and minerals from hard water. If left to dry, soap scum removal can be one of the most difficult parts of cleaning a bathroom, but it doesn't have to be that way. To eliminate this problem, first try a little preventative maintenance. Keep a squeegee in your bathroom to wipe down shower doors and walls after every bath or shower. In addition, if you use a bar soap, you might want to consider switching to a liquid soap since it doesn't contain talc. Finally, here's a quick soap scum removal tip: use a dryer sheet! Just dampen and wipe along your shower door, soap scum will no longer be an issue. This also works for cleaning bathroom tiles of this unsightly film as well.
Dryer sheet is an excellent tip!
This really does work. If you have really bad soap scum it may take 2 or 3 drier sheets.
Calgon Water Softener worked when nothing else helped. Mix in water and apply.
I tried this. It works great and its very easy.I couldnt believe it. works GREAT.
I tried it as a last resort, and now keep dryer sheets in the bathroom linen closet for quick cleaning, and the towels smell great too :)
WINDEX WIPES works great on cleaning glass shower doors...they also work great for the glass shelves in the refrigerator...just clean and throw away, so easy!
I tried it but I was not impressed with outcome.
wow, im going to try that with the dryer sheets just to see if it works. and i did not know that about bar soap, thanks. also, i have a glass and tile shower and have tried it all, i found that the mr. clean miricle erase pads are the way to go.
Those Mr. Clean sponges work incredibly well on shower doors and enclosures and bathtub grime. (This is an unsolicited testimonial, I have no connection with the company, and in fact mostly I use generic version of them I get in the dollar stores)
Rain-X also will keep the soap scum from sticking to the doors once you get them clean.
Wow i have to try this
