Shower screens are a practical, modern-looking alternative to shower curtains: they take up less space, they blend in seamlessly with almost any bathroom and they're often more effective at their job. They do tend to attract water marks, though, and keeping them shiny and clean-looking can take a little effort. If you're wondering what the easiest way to keep your shower screen as sparklingly clean as the day you had it installed, read on.
The simplest way to keep your shower screen looking shiny is to keep it from getting watermarked in the first place, and you'll save yourself a lot of time by spritzing it down at the end of every shower. Most supermarkets sell products designed for this purpose, and you can keep a bottle of one of those in your bathroom to use every day--but if you'd rather make your own, a spray bottle filled with boiled or distilled water and some white vinegar does the job just as well. You can add a few drops of your favourite essential oil to make it double up as an air freshener, but be very sparing with this--more than a tiny amount of oil could cause smudging.
About once a week, you'll need to give it a bit more TLC--but there's no need to make this into a huge job! Simply take the same bottle you're spraying the screen down with every day and use a cloth to wipe the liquid all over the screen. Then get a clean, dry absorbent cleaning cloth and wipe the whole screen down thoroughly, being careful to concentrate on any areas with particularly strong marks. You can save time by doing this right after your shower when you'd usually just spray it down and leave it, and it will make a huge difference to the look and feel of your bathroom.
Your daily and weekly tasks will deal with water marks and soap scum, but over time limescale begins to build up on many shower screens. To combat this, set aside a little time once a month or so to give it some really thorough attention. This is one time when it really does pay to always use a dedicated cleaning product: you want to find one that contains a limescale removing agent. Follow the instructions on the bottle, and then when it's done go back to your water and vinegar solution before using a dry cloth to buff your shower screen to a high shine.
