Thank you to OXO for providing the bathroom tools for today’s post! All opinions and the 7 Minute Shower Door Cleaning Routine are my own.
The triplets are pretty generous. They’ll let me do anything that I want for at least ten minutes before breaking into a fight that needs a referee. I can get anything done around the house as long as it’s in 10-15 minute spurts. If your shower door is like mine, it needs much more than 10 minutes to get clean. For some reason, the shower door gets dirtier faster than the rest of the shower. Before I know it, the door is gross and needs cleaning attention. I’ve been trying to accommodate my lack of time with the fact that my shower door desperately needs a good scrubbing. Enter the 7 Minute Shower Door Cleaning Routine.
I’m not a very strong gal, and typically I have to scrub the shower door with more muscle that I actually possess. I’m happy to report that with this cleaning routine, I don’t have to scrub at all!
Here are the items that I use for this 7 Minute Shower Door Cleaning Routine. I’m featuring the items that I received from OXO to try out this month!
- Homemade cleaner- I make my own cleaner with equal parts WARM vinegar and dishwashing liquid. Mix it up in a spray bottle, and you have your own high powered cleaning solution.
- A Squeegee
- OXO Extendable Tub and Tile Scrubber
Begin by spraying the homemade cleaner on the shower door. Let it sit for a minute or two.
Wipe the solution over the shower door with the Extendable Tub and Tile Scrubber. The Extendable Tub and Tile Scrubber makes shower cleaning easy because it extends from 26″ to 42″ with a quick twist. The head pivots for cleaning at different angles, making it great for getting in shower door crevices.
Rinse the shower door. We have a removable hand shower head, so it’s easy to take it off, hop in the shower, and spray the door down. Remove the excess water with the squeegee. The OXO Wiper Blade Squeegee has a precision edge for drying the shower door with no streaks.
And that is seriously it! I cleaned my shower door before the boys even knew that I had left the room.
In fact, I had some extra time to spruce up my bathroom with a new OXO Good Grips Stainless Steel Big Bin Shower Caddy.
This thing holds a ton! The hubby and I have separate shower caddies now. Of course, the new one is all mine. I need lots of space for all my shower gels and shampoos. It hangs securely over the shower head, and the suction cups completely steady it on the shower wall.
I also added an OXO Stainless Steel Toilet Brush and Canister Set, as well as an OXO Stainless Steel Toilet Plunger and Canister Set, to the bathroom. The plunger is a nice compromise between me and the hubby. It looks nice but is still functional. It makes the homemaker within me and the plumber within him very happy!
What is your shower cleaning routine? Do you have any tips and tricks you’d like to share that makes your life easier?

Love the simplicity. You just reminded me that I have to get a shower caddy. The side of my tub is starting to get a bit crowded. That thing looks like it can hold a car! Which is just what I need.
Thanks for sharing!

You make it look so easy! I like the use of the wand, it would keep my nails from getting all gross.

I like the look of the stainless steel so much better than plastic.
The tile scrubber looks like it does a good job. I might have to try that.
There is nothing like a good clean shower!
This is so awesome! I hate cleaning the shower door, it usually takes so much time. I should try this!
I love that such a thorough cleaning can be accomplished in such a short period of time!! I always think I don’t have “time” to clean the shower 😉
This is totally awesome! We just have a curtain right now but I hope to have a door someday!
I love how simple this is — but what a huge impact! I love our shower caddy.. I am going to have to check out the Good Grips as well for our shower.
Thanks for the great ideas| What percentages do you use? Like 2 drops of dish soap in a quart of vinegar? I don’t want to create a bubbly mess but I also want to be sure I am using enough because my door REALLY needs a good cleaning. How do you warm the vinegar? Should it be just lukewarm or seriously warm?
Hi! I use equal parts dish soap and vinegar. So if I use 1 cup of dish soap, then I use 1 cup of vinegar. Regarding the warmth, I definitely don’t get it to reach boiling! It’s warm enough that I could touch it but not get burned. So lukewarm is probably fine. Thanks for asking!
Great! Thanks very much!
I understand about the short amounts of time… I am sure with three busy ones, it is even harder!
What great tips, I need to try this soon!

We are getting ready to redo our bathroom with a glass door, so this is a great post for ideas for me to clean it!
Hi, in The Netherlands we buy our OXO stuff at oxo-good-grips.nl. But there is only a part of the assortment available in Europe. The toilet set is very nice, but not (yet) available here. I hope it will come soon.
