I love my shower but the sliding door overlaps with the fixed glass and the narrow overlap is almost impossible to clean.The door is like number 15 here:http://www.majesticshowers.com/images/majestic_frameless.pdf...I have used a toothrbrush wrapped in a flannel, but it is not very satisfactory.Have any fools had experience of cleaning this type of door?TIApenym
I am not sure which door you have from the link above.Have you tried the eraser sponges? They are white, made of melamine foam, and abrasive without scratching. The can be squished to fit a narrow space and do a great job on shower doors.
Once it is clean (and Diziet's idea sounds good to me), then you may be able to keep it clean by using a daily shower spray on itmanzanilla
The door is no.15 in the pdf version. I have never heard of eraser sponges. can you tell me where I can buy them?Thanks Dizietpenym
Manz beat me to it! I bought mine in Aldi, but it was one of their 'specials'. Be careful if you use these sponges to clean varnished or painted surfaces as they dull the finish.
Not sure were the number 15 is written in that PDF.But on page 50 is a web site and email address for the company, surely a question that they would be best placed to respond to?If it requires a special shaped "tool" to clean it - get one made. A local technical collage will have a workshop where students could make something study cheaply if you are unable to fabricate something yourself.
Thank you for all the helpful replies.I will ring up Majestic and will try the erasers.I knew that I would get what I needed here!penym
Would something like the rubber blade from an old windscreen wiper do the trick and fit between the overlap?Or a microporous cloth wrapped around a plastic school ruler?
penym - I can't see your pdf (my prob not yours) but is it possible the door pops off? I have seen so many people struggling with desk drawers etc when it's just a case of knowing to pop the drawer out (or in your case the door off.)Might not be something you want to do often but perhaps once every few months to give it a thorough scrub and use your eraser to keep it tidy in between times?SB(better than suggesting you get a life and stop worrying about such minor things - which was my first and very slovenly reaction)
I can't see which door it is either (a page number or Design name would be better than an 'image number' that is not apparent).But if the problem is overlapping sliding doors, I previously resolved this in the past by cleaning the shower doors from the inside with the doors fully shut and hence directly exposed.Furthermore the grime can be made up of two things grease and soap scum, and limescale. I'd suggest a trade cleaner rather than a regular household one, and starting by using a plastic kitchen scouring pad. Something like Hageson Blue perhaps. http://www.amazon.co.uk/HG-Hagesan-Blue-1L/dp/B000IU3VRG. Or a combination of their products depending upon how bad it is.
Update:I emailed Majestic. A ruler with a thin microporous cloth was recommended.I have ordered the eraser sponges and will try them out as well as the ruler idea with the thin cloth with the liquid cleaner.Thanks everyonepenym
Although the question has been answered, I find that one of the best products to clean scale and deposits off shower doors, and also keep them from accumulating deposits is a product designed for car windscreens. Its called 'Rain X' and its absolutely brilliant. After applying the product, you just need to squeegy water off the door and it returns to crystal clear moments later.
Which Rain X product?
Which Rain X product? This stuff:-http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/3-x-RAIN-REPELLENT-RAIN-X-SLEET-SN...It cleans as well as works as a repellent. Probably works on shower tiles as well.(no connection to the seller on eBay - just picked this one at random)
