Best Way To Clean Shower Door Tracks
Shower door tracks are perhaps the dirtiest areas in your shower because most of us don’t tend to think about that little strip that becomes ideal places for dirt and hair to accumulate.
These tracks also serve as perfect breeding grounds for mold to grow, which can make your entire family miserable especially those who may suffer from allergies.
Over time, this becomes a very neglected area of the shower and it’s time we help you get it sparkling again.
If your shower door is hard to open you really need to think about cleaning it and we’re going to show you how to do it quickly and easily.
To Remove or Not Remove The Door
For the most thorough cleaning, you are going to need to remove the sliding shower door.
It’s very similar to a closet door in that the shower door has wheels on top and the door latches on top of the wheels.
Lift the door up off the track and pull it toward you to remove it.
