Is WD-40 Good To Remove Soap Scum Residue On Shower Glass Doors?

I just enjoy those long showers after a long a day at work! But, who doesn’t?

In this regard, my husband and I decided to install a shower cabin in the downstairs bathroom. Of course, we’ve chosen a complete shower glass door, without any rubber gasket to prevent mold appearance. Prevention is better than searching for solutions afterwards.

Yes, I might not wipe mold off the shower gasket, but the hard work comes from that annoying hard tap water! On each shower glass door, in the hard water area, you will see small whitish dots on it. Those are hard water deposits due to minerals found in tap water.

The bad thing is when they attack your shower glass doors or any other glass surface, because it creates a crusty soap scum (shampoo, conditioner, shower gel residues) which is hard to remove, unless you use WD-40.
This popular product has many uses, and one of them is to remove those whitish residues on shower glass doors.

How to use WD-40 to remove soap scum from shower glass doors

  • First thing is to read carefully the instructions on the label, and then open the bathroom window to ventilate properly the room.
  • The next step is to spray the shower glass door, starting from top to bottom, with a light coat of WD-40. Let it act for a few minutes, and then wipe the door with a clean cloth.
  • If the hard water deposits are a bit stubborn and didn’t remove completely, just re-apply another WD-40 layer.

Tip: you may use a no-scratch scrubber to remove some of the stubborn whitish dots.

  • The last thing is to wipe the shower glass door with a clean cloth, and don’t rinse. Anyhow, you must clean the shower door floor in case if any WD-40 reached it, because it will make the floor slippery, and we don’t want any accidents to happen.
