How to keep the shower screen clean for good
Hard water spots are some of the most unsightly additions to a bathroom as they dry in the same spot they land.
The best way to keep your glass nice and clean is to stop water from drying there in the first place.
Luckily, there are some preventative measures you can take after using the bathroom to stop this from happening.
One great shower and bath investment is a squeegee, which you can keep handy and wipe down the glass after every shower.
After cleaning the glass, you can apply a specialist compound to keep water spots firmly off the glass.
Install a water softener for a longer-term solution in combatting hard water stains.
Although expensive, it will solve numerous other problems around the house, such as limescale buildup in the kettle.
Water softeners work by reducing mineral buildup on surfaces, including shower screens, and the insides of pipes, taps, dishwashers, shower heads and plenty more.
