Shower with dark grey tiling in a modern bathroom


Over time, soap scum can build up on your shower glass, creating a layer of grime that glass cleaner just won't cut through. Using some simple cleaning products, you can achieve a streak-free shine every time, ensuring your shower glass remains clear and clean.


1Gather all your tools and materials

Make sure you have all your required tools and materials ready including your safety equipment, before you start to clean.

3Clean the glass

Spray the shower cleaner on the glass surfaces. To spread it around, wipe the spray with a damp microfibre cloth. Let the spray soak as per the instructions on the product packaging, the exact time may vary depending on the cleaner used.

For those hard-to-reach areas, such as the bottom and sides of the shower, use a magic eraser along with a little water and elbow grease.

Rinse the soapy areas with cold water using a shower hose, or if you don't have one you can use a jug.

For a streak-free finish, dry right away with a microfibre cloth. Alternatively, if you have a Karcher window vac, you can also use this to clean your shower glass. Simply run it down the shower screen one width at a time – the vac will clean and dry as you go.

Health & Safety

Please make sure you use all equipment appropriately and safely when following the advice in these D.I.Y. videos. You need to be familiar with how to use equipment safely and follow the instructions that came with the equipment. If you are unsure, you may feel it is safest to consult an expert, such as the manufacturer or an expert Bunnings Team Member.

Grave health hazards are linked to asbestos, which may be in homes built up to 1990. Health hazards may result from exposure to lead-based paints in older materials and copper chromium arsenic (CCA) treated timber. For information on the dangers of asbestos, lead-based paint and CCA treated timber and tips for dealing with these materials contact your local council's Environmental Health Officer. You can also use a simple test kit from Bunnings to indicate the presence of lead-based paint.
