A shower is a great way to wind down during a long day or to get energized in the morning. It truly has many advantages. However, even though a shower door can be the finishing touch to a custom bathroom, it can also be damaged and deteriorate over time due to humidity and temperature changes. Some problems are an easy fix and can be repaired without calling a professional.

Sliding Shower Doors

A bypass door, or a sliding door, is designed so that it slides back and forth on a metal or plastic track. The frame that holds bypass doors can gather water and grime, which can cause many problems. Metal tracks can also rust and develop mold and mildew. When it comes to a bypass door, the best thing to do is to regularly clean your shower door tracks to avoid any damage. The best home remedy for removing any debris that gathered is plain white vinegar and baking soda. Pour some vinegar on the shower door track and sprinkle with some baking soda. A frothy foam will be produced, which will break up any grime that may cause your shower door to not function properly. If vinegar and baking soda doesn’t work, you may need to scrub the dirt off or scratch it out with a screwdriver or knife. Use some Lime-Away or CLR to help dissolve the deposits away.
