Try vinegar:

Vinegar is the ultimate solution for cleaning but use the equal amount of dish soap with white vinegar to cut the soap scum, mildew and mineral building. The reason is that if you use only white vinegar for cleaning, it won’t give you best results.

How to Use:

  •    Use warm water for rinsing
  •    Spray this solution inside and outside the door and rub it with the sponge.
  •    Leave it for half an hour and use the paper towel to dry off the shower door.
  •    The stronger stain will be removed after two to three scrubs.

Use hydrogen peroxide:

How to use:

Spray the Hydrogen peroxide onto the mildew using the spray bottle.

Leave it for a couple of minutes and wipe off with the clean towel.

Apply it up to four times as no scrubbing is required.

Squeegee every single day:

If you clean your glass shower door every single day, you can rid of to spend hours to clean the shower door after months. Apparently, it looks like a too much cleaning every day but it requires just a few seconds if you follow this tip. Clean it with the squeegee that will reduce the mineral and scum deposit.

Keep your bathroom dry and ventilated by opening the window during a shower to avoid the mildew and soap scum. Also, turn on the fan for drying the area. It will lessen the time for mildew to take benefit from moisture. Squeeze the towel and spread it on the stand to dry after use.
