TRUSTDale Tip of the Day: *Tips on Cleaning a Home's Mirrors and Glass

Part of the challenge of keeping a home clean is the mirrors and glass. Streaks and spots are unsightly and embarrassing.

There are various products on the market advertised to clean mirrors and glass to a sparkling and streak-free finish. Eco-friendly types will swear that homemade mixtures of vinegar and water or rubbing alcohol will do the job just as well. Here are tips for cleaning glass that may surprise H'eloise herself.

Keeping Fiberglass Showers and Doors Clean

Cleaning the fiberglass shower stall is easy if it's kept up. Use a mild cleaner and water, such as dish detergent or Clorox's Green Works natural dilutable cleaner. Put a couple squirts of dish detergent or a capful of the Green Works cleaner into a spray bottle and fill with warm tap water. Spray on shower walls and floor and use a wet sponge to wipe down.

If the shower stall needs a little elbow grease, use a cleaning sponge that has a sponge on one side and a non-abrasive scrubber on the other. If a grease monkey uses the shower and there are especially grimy spots, put a little Bon Ami on the scrubber side of the wet sponge and work to a pasty substance and then scrub away!

For the shower doors, the best way to keep them looking clean and clear is to invest in a bath squeegee and squeegee down the doors after every shower. It takes just a minute and very little effort. The squeegee can be used on the shower stall as well.

If the doors have water buildup, work on them with the Green Works solution first. If the doors are not coming clean easily, use Cerama-Bryte (the cleaner for smooth cooktops) rinse, and polish dry. Then invest in a nice looking squeegee with a hanging hook.
