Yes squeegee's work, but it you don't have one or are too lazy to use it, rest assured...Mr. Clean Magic sponges take soap scum off with ease. And, while cleaning it, you can feel the friction between the soap scum and the sponge. When everything feels smooth as glass, its totally clean. Mr. Clean sponges are awesome.

Use Tilex 'after shower' spray immediately following each tub use. Liberal use after every shower eliminates the formation of soap scum buildup. Spray on fiberglass surround and fixtures. Spray the shower curtain liner, too, to curtail mildew.
