How to Use WD-40 to Wash a Shower Door

Over time, your shower doors can become marred with hard water and soap scum. These stains will eventually attract more dirt and grease. Cleaning the doors regularly will help ensure that these stains don't build up. One quick and easy way to clean the shower doors is to use WD-40, which you can purchase at any hardware or home improvement store. Always work in a well-ventilated bathroom, as WD-40 contains strong chemicals.

  1. Spray the WD-40 directly on the stains on the shower door. WD-40 is effective in removing hard water deposits, soap scum, and any adhesive or sticky residue.

  2. Let the WD-40 sit for several minutes.

  3. Wipe off the WD-40 with a clean cloth.

  4. Repeat the process until you've cleaned the entire shower door.

  5. Rinse the shower door with clear water from the shower, and dry it with a clean towel.
