The trick comes from the home pros at Taste of Home, who explained why your shower doors get so cloudy in the first place.

“Cloudy doors are caused by limescale (mostly limescale),” the experts write.

When tackling everyday buildup, a simple solution of vinegar and dish soap can break down the calcium.

You can also use lemons and kosher salt if you want your shower to smell fresh.

But what about haze that appears permanent? Believe it or not, steel wool is a safe and effective solution, the experts said.

“For tough stains, try extra-fine steel wool,” write the pros at Taste of Home.

The trick is to look for sheets of #0000 grade steel wool.

“It won’t scratch the glass but will help remove mineral deposits,” the experts said.

“Wipe down the door with a sheet of dry steel wool, working in a circular motion from top to bottom.” As you flush, you should see mineral deposits fall off.

You can also spray the shower doors with vinegar, leave on overnight and rinse, then buff any remaining residue with steel wool to spot treat.

If your doors are sparkling clean, practice good hygiene—that is, home hygiene—to keep them that way.

The best way to achieve this is to let your bathroom dry out after you shower, so water doesn’t settle on the doors and form debris.

“Dry the doors with a cloth or a squeegee after every shower,” advise the experts. “When not in use, leave the shower door ajar to allow ventilation.”

After you shower, make sure you rinse soap and body products off the shower walls, doors, floors, and the rails your door rests on.

You can also give your shower a good spray of vinegar every week to keep calcium and other minerals in check.
