Green Cleaning for Bathrooms with Glass Shower Doors in Middleburg, VA

    (Provided by ABC Glass & Mirror, Inc. - Wednesday, June 12, 2013)

Cleaning the bathroom – glass shower doors and all – is one of the countless chores that Middleburg homemakers carry out on a weekly basis to make their homes welcoming. Many feel uncomfortable with the unnecessary use of chemicals in the house, especially if children or an expectant mother will be using the bathroom. Concerns about the environment and pet safety have also led families to move toward non-toxic cleaning alternatives. Let’s explore a few of the green cleaning options available to today’s homemaker.

First, if cleaning the glass shower doors is something you’ve given up on because they’re broken or otherwise flawed, invite our glazier to your Middleburg home for a free shower door consultation.

Reducing the need for hardcore cleaning of the glass shower doors is a smart move for Middleburg families who want to avoid chemical-based cleaning agents. Simple steps can be taken to keep soap scum and water spots from accumulating in the first place. For the best results, rinse the unit with fresh water after showering and then dry both the glass and metal pieces.

If this is too time-consuming, be sure to at least remove water drops with a squeegee and wipe the hardware with a towel before exiting the shower. Regular drying is especially important for the hardware, which can’t be safely cleaned with anything containing ammonia, bleach, or acid-based chemicals anyway. Even vinegar must be avoided on the hardware! Cleaning glass shower doors is going to be a part of life even if good maintenance habits are formed. As Middleburg families know from experience, there will be days when the routine is skipped, and there will be water droplets that are missed. This is where the weekly bathroom cleaning comes in.

For the glass on your shower, you can try Seventh Generation Shower Cleaner, a plant-based cleaning agent that is non-toxic and bio-degradable. For the hardware, try rubbing out spots with a soft, dry cloth. If it’s brass hardware, stop here, since no soaps or cleaners are safe for this finish. For most other finishes, you can add a few drops of a mild, liquid soap to a cup of warm water and use this solution on a soft cloth. Seventh Generation Natural Dish Liquid is an example of a green option.

Besides cleaning the glass shower doors, Middleburg homemakers must tackle the sink, vanity, mirrors, etc. Always make sure that a product is approved for use on the material you are cleaning and read labels and instructions before starting. Just because a product is safe for you, it’s not necessarily safe for the surface you are scrubbing. With this in mind, here are some green cleaning alternatives that may be ideal for other bathroom fixtures –

  •    - Common household vinegar

  •    - Baking soda

  •    - Sterling’s Magic – non-toxic, bio-degradable

  •    - Sun and Earth Glass Cleaner – plant derived, non-toxic, hypo-allergenic
