You cleaned it with what?!?!

We moved in August and the master bathroom has a shower stall with a glass (I'm sure it's really plexiglass) surround. Now, I love the natural lighting and openness but I HATE the soap scum.

I've tried spray after spray after spray and nothing seemed to make a difference. Then one day, I saw a tip online that said to use dryer sheets.

I'll give you a moment to let that sink in.
Yes, I really said dryer sheets. 

Stop smirking! I did that too, ya know. I thought, "Ha! Whatever! Dryer sheets will not do anything to soap scum." Boy, was I wrong!

I grabbed a dryer sheet today, ran it under cold water to dampen it and started rubbing. I could immediately feel the grittiness on the door breaking down and disappearing. After wiping down the entire door and rinsing it with water, I was left with a door I could SEE through, when I had not been able to see through it a few minutes before.

I think after a few more dryer sheet treatments, I might just have the shower stall looking like new again!


  1. Wow that is awesome! I am going to try that in the shower on just the regular soap is great until you have to clean up after

  2. I have heard that too. Doesn't work unfortunately on my shower door since we have hard water, but I do squeegey (spell?)mine really well every single time I shower.
