It's for the shower door. I used white vinegar and it did clean but at very slow pace. Is there any way I can find stronger vinegar or a glass cleaner that does this kind of job? Thanks

CLR works for me and it's far less caustic than oven cleaner I would think. It works on glass, tile and stainless steel too.

I've had really good results with Ka-Boom. Get the spray, not the foam.

I also wipe mine down regularly after use with a microfiber cloth Zep window cleaner (Home Depot).

What are you trying to clean off your glass? That will give us a better idea of what you need. I know a lot of people have had good luck with the Mr. Clean Magic Eraser on glass shower doors. I keep meaning to try it on mine but I haven't yet. I have used it to clean windows and they get amazingly clean with that.

If you have really hard water, vinegar is your best bet. I would liberally spray down the glass before you go to bed, let it soak overnight, wipe down the next morning before you shower.

Once you get the glass clean the best way to keep it that way is to keep a squeegee in the shower and use it every time someone takes a shower. I never have to clean my doors anymore.

some good suggestions here. I'll get something so that we don't have to be in this situation again.

I actually don't know what it is on the glass door - what I know is we tried vinegar and it did clean but kind of slowly - took some time. So I am guessing something from the soap or may be from hard water?

Probably hard water stains (calcium/lime) which cleaners like CLR are formulated for.
