Another neglected area in our shower is the shower door tracks…which means that they have gotten kind of gross!
So, I thought I would try to clean my shower door tracks using natural ingredients, like vinegar. You’ll need:
- Distilled White Vinegar
- Paper Towels
- Old Toothbrush for scrubbing
- Q-Tips for scrubbing tight spots
- Water Spray Bottle for rinsing
Everything that I read said to stop up any holes with a paper towel and then pour vinegar into the tracks. However, because this is a shower stall with a door that opens and closes rather than a shower door that slides closed, there was no deep track with holes.
So, I poured vinegar onto a paper towel and laid the paper towels onto the track and let them sit for 30 minutes. Be sure to turn on your exhaust fan because the smell of vinegar can be strong (although not toxic). Once the 30 minutes was done, I simply took an old toothbrush and ran it across the tracks. All the gunk and goo came right off. For the tight spots, I used a Q-tip to clean it. Then, I took a spray bottle with water and rinsed the vinegar off the tracks. Much better now!
