Water spots on shower doors form when water splashes onto the doors and is not wiped off.

Perhaps soapy water has splashed onto the doors, or you may just have a hard-water supply that leaves the shower doors with cloudy, unattractive spots. To properly handle the water spots, you must first remove any existing spots, then clean with an effective solution to prevent the water spots from re-developing.

Remove existing water spots by mixing equal parts water and white vinegar in a spray bottle.

Spray the solution onto the shower doors, and let it sit for five minutes to dissolve the water spots.

Wipe the shower doors with a damp cleaning rag.

Clean the shower doors after each use by either using a squeegee to remove excess water, or by wiping the doors with a dry towel after each use of the shower.

Spray the vinegar and water solution onto your shower doors at least once per week to keep the doors clean.
