I've got a shower door with what appears to be hard water deposits that won't come clean. I've tried several cleaners including Scrub Free Mildew Remover, Scrub Free Soap Scum Remover and Kaboom -- none of which have made a dent in the problem. Any suggestions on how to remove the deposits would be most appreciated.

I think if you look in the tile department of your local home center (think orange logo), you'll find that they have some stronger stuff that will do the trick. Combine the spray with one of those green "scrungy" pads, and it'll come off.

Thanks for the tip. Found Spot-x (which apparently is made up of ground clam shells) and along with a non-scratch pad, did the trick. Thanks a bunch!

Hi Stringbean...try using a new razor blade to scrape off old residue...brillo works real well also.....after you get it clean it helps to wax the glass, the water will then just slide right off....aloha

Here's the Web site of a shower door company. They have a lot of good advice for shower door maintenance, including the problem of water spots.

Scrubbie pad, elbow grease, and white vinegar
