Shower doors can be tricky to clean, with soap scum and watermarks building up at a rapid rate. According to the cleaning experts at Bella Bathrooms, one of the “best ingredients” for fighting the toughest buildup is baking soda.
Baking soda, also known as baking soda, is usually found in your kitchen cupboard.
This leavening agent, most often used in baking, is also popular for its versatile cleaning uses around the home.
Baking soda works well for cleaning thanks to its high pH, which makes it alkaline and therefore able to dissolve organic compounds like dirt and grease.
The mineral structure of the baking soda particles also acts as a mild abrasive, to clean without leaving streaks.
