Hard Water Stains | How I Remove Hard Water Stains from glass shower door

Hey guys! I will be sharing how I keep my glass shower door clean. This step by step guide will show you how to remove those unwanted pesky clouds on your glass. Let’s get into it…

We all love a clean shower and it can be super frustrating when hard water can deposit a white film on your glass surfaces. My family refuses to squeegee after each shower so the build up can get pretty bad. No need to worry because I have a way for you to get rid of this cloudy build up and have clear shower walls again.

So, how do I clean it?

This is the hard water stains on my shower glass

List of Supplies

Cleaning Gloves

Lysol Power Toilet Cleaner

Brillo Pads

Glass Cleaner



First, put your gloves on.

Lysol is a bleach so if you’re not careful it will discolor. Also you need gloves to protect your skin from a burning sensation. Pour the Lysol all over the glass and rub it in, making sure you hit every point

Next, you’re going to wet the Brillo pad and scrub the shower wall. I know, I know! Steel wool on glass. I’m sure you heard it’s a big no-no it’ll scratch your glass but rubbing the Lysol in I have yet to scratch it. So make sure you get it everywhere you poured your Lysol. If there is an area with more film give it a good scrub. Rinse with water and squeegee off excess water.

You’re already going to see a difference but we are going to keep going. Use a glass cleaner, I prefer glass cleaner. Spray all over and wipe off.

Lastly and my favorite part. This is preventative because it helps with future film build up. Spray on the Rain-X and wipe away with a paper towel. Your next few showers you will be able to see the glass repel water.

Does this get 100% of my stains out? No. But did I wait too long to take action? Yes. Don’t be like me. This is something that can be done once a week or once a month without pressure and you’ll see great results. Let me know in the comments if this works for you or what you’ve used to remove water stains.
