How to Wash Around the Plastic Sweep of Frameless Shower Doors

No, it’s not hopeless; you can wash around the plastic brush of your glass shower door. With a small brushes and a couple of cleaning supplies, your shower door along with the sweep around it is going to look brand new.


Utilize a non-abrasive bathroom cleaner and glass cleaner for the glass door together with a soft microfiber fabric or paper towels. A homemade mixture of 50-to-50 water and vinegar — or bleach — or a manmade cleaner formulated in removing lime scale and bathroom scum is recommended. The tools needed to scrub the plastic brush are an old toothbrush for smaller places and a scouring brush or pad.


Remove the plastic strip from the bathtub door — tug a couple of times on the far-end until it loosens up — and then place it into a bathtub filled with the 50-to-50 homemade solution, or spray/pour fabricated cleaning solution over the plastic strip. Let it sit on the scum and lime scale for about 15 to 20 minutes to split it up. Scrub the plastic strip using a scouring pad or narrow brush — like a toothbrush — until clean. Spray or apply cleaning solution across the plastic sweep on the shower stall and then allow it to set for about 15 minutes. Use a toothbrush to scrub the narrow, little locations. Before putting the plastic strip back on the shower door, then spray on the door using a non-abrasive cleaner and then wipe it away with a soft, microfiber fabric or paper towel. Once the soap scum is gone, spray the glass door with a glass cleaner, then removing all stripes until it’s obvious. Finally, attach the clean plastic strip — hinge-side first — back on the door.
