I exclusively use Dawn dish soap, and just for washing dishes and cleaning the shower. Why? For want of a better term, grease and this is how I clean my shower. So far as I’m aware, only Dawn dish soap has a unique grease-fighting component that almost turns the oil into liquid and rinses away.
Which vinegar works best for cleaning shower doors?
Vinegar that complements Dawn and vinegar is white distilled vinegar. It is the most cost-effective vinegar for this and other home cleaning purposes, and it is also the cheapest. There are many different types of vinegar, but the “workhorse” of them all is distilled white vinegar.
IS THERE SOMETHING SPECIAL I NEED TO CLEAN THE DOORS OF MY SHOWER?
After spraying the Dawn and vinegar solution on the shower doors, I wipe them down with a microfiber cloth or clean washcloth, rinse them with a thorough spray shower, then dry them with a squeegee (if I can locate one) before using the shower.
Cleaning with dawn and vinegar is more effective than with commercial cleaners.
I’ve used several different bathroom cleansers, from Rain-X to cleaning bubbles and beyond. In comparison to this simple, cheap, and effective Dawn vinegar solution, I’ve never seen a store-bought cleaner do a better job.

Exactly what makes dawn and vinegar so exceptional?
Dawn dissolves oil and dirt. Dawn is the most effective dish soap on the market in getting rid of oil buildup. It is the most effective method for removing oil from birds’ feathers without endangering their skin when an oil spill occurs. Why is that? As a result of its petroleum content, Dawn is a popular choice. Even though it seems backwards, it really achieves its intended effect.
In addition to being a great degreaser, vinegar also makes things shine. A natural miracle with a wide range of applications. This piece on the benefits of a Listerine vinegar foot soak was written by my dermatologist, Dr. Jo Herzog.
WHAT MOONSHINE SHOULD I USE TO WASH THE SHOWER DOOR?
Here’s a rundown of the many types of Dawn dishwashing soap available, in case you’re curious. The combination of vinegar and any kind of Dawn, in my view, does wonders for cleaning shower doors.
Dawn’s new and improved Ultra Blue detergent now has “3X More Grease Cleaning Power.” Compared to ordinary Dawn, it’s a whopping 3 times more powerful (regular Dawn).
As compared to 2X Dawn, 3X Dawn is 50% more potent.
Keep in mind that the “2X Grease Cleaning Power” claim is still included on several other Dawn Ultra products.
Method for Making a Dawn and Vinegar Shower Door Cleaner.
Combine the Dawn dish detergent with the vinegar in a 1 to 1 ratio. If your blend is too thick, just dilute it with less Dawn.
The microwave has to be set for 2 minutes to heat the solution (do not boil). When it’s not too hot, stir it up and pour it into a bottle. This is essential for a smooth blending process.
Make sure you use a high-quality spray bottle while applying the solution. You can get a pack of three of these transparent spray bottles for less than twenty dollars.
The use of a funnel ensures a clean pouring process. This collapsible funnel is perfect since it can be stored away easily.
Shower doors may be cleaned with a Dawn and vinegar solution by spraying it on while they are dry. Because of the water on the shower door, the concentration of the chemicals is reduced. Additionally, the solution adheres more strongly to dry shower doors than wet ones.
Keep on for a minimum of two to three minutes. In the course of the five minutes it takes to apply the solution to both doors, I take a shower.
Use a damp towel to wipe off the shower door. When I need to clean the shower doors, I bring an extra washcloth and leave it in the shower with me. I soak it up in the shower and it’s ready to go when it’s time to wash down the shower doors with a Dawn and vinegar solution.
We recommend using warm water to thoroughly wash the shower doors. Because my shower is equipped with a handheld attachment, I can easily reach every corner of the house and give each door a thorough rinsing from the top down.
Apply squeegee wipes to the door frames. I adore using this white Oxo squeegee in the shower, so I keep it there. It’s possible to get clean doors without using a squeegee, but they won’t dry as clear.
Shower doors may also be cleaned with baking soda.
When mixed with vinegar, baking soda serves as an abrasive that may effectively remove various types of hard water spots and soap scum. To give it a go, just soak a sponge or cloth in vinegar and then roll it in baking soda. Put up some effort and scrape the soap scum away. Remove any leftover residue with a warm water rinse.
LOOK AT ME I’ll use this to scrub the glass on my shower’s sliding doors.
In the video below, I illustrate how simple it is to clean shower doors using a solution of Dawn and vinegar. There is no need to scrape at all; all that is required is a little amount of effort and a powerful spray from the shower head.
Be warned that the procedure leaves behind a pronounced vinegar odor, which may be distracting if you choose to do it in the shower. Since vinegar is a harmless natural substance, this doesn’t worry me too much.

In a glass basin, combine 4 cups Dawn and 4 cups vinegar.
After stirring, microwave on high for 4 minutes, then remove and mix one more.
Carefully transfer the solution to the spray bottle using the funnel.
To ensure a well-blended solution, give it a good shake. Apply as required on bathroom glass.
WARNING If the solution is hot, use caution. Use two parts vinegar to one part Dawn if you’re using the commercial kind of Dawn, which may be rather thick.
HOW TO DEAL WITH CONGEALED DAWN-VINEGAR.
The Dawn vinegar solution might thicken and become difficult to spray, but this problem has a simple remedy. You should begin by removing the heavy liquid from the container and then thoroughly cleaning the sprayer with water. Second, I recommend making a new solution using the dimensions I outline in the video.
