How do I clean stubborn water stains from a glass shower door?

We’re renting this house, and from what I know of its history it’s been a few years since anyone bothered to clean the glass on the shower door.

I’ve tried the following products:

Lysol Soap Scum Remover
CLR
LimeAway
Vinegar and water
Comet Cleanser
Toothpaste
A razor blade

Nothing is working!!!! If I owned the home I’d just go buy another glass door lol … it’s a lovely shower and a beautiful home, but I really don’t want to invest any money into it, know what I mean?

Any suggestions would be great (well, other than to kick out the door and call the property owner lol), thanks!

    I had the same problem with our glass shower door in our apartment. I ended getting a MR. Clean Magic Eraser. It was the only thing that worked.

    Pickling vinegar is stronger than regular vinegar. Spray undiluted vinegar on the shower walls and/or bathtub. Let it sit for about 30-60 minutes and it should come off with a firm wipe, or scrape off with a plastic spatula.

    The acid (vinegar) breaks down the calcium deposit (water stains). This is also a simple and fun science experiment for kids. Add a whole egg (uncracked) into a glass of vinegar. In about 3 days you will notice that the egg’s shell will be translucent, all you will see is a floating egg sack and yolk.

    The vinegar dissolves the egg’s calcium shell. Kids get a kick of seeing the results :-).

    Mix a thick paste of white vinegar and baking soda. Don’t worry about the bubbling its normal. Paint it all over the doors and let it site for an hour or better. Use a plastic scrubbie (the kind of sponge with a scrubber on one side and sponge on the other works great). You may have to repeat once or twice depending on the buid up, but believe me it will look like brand new in no time, and you won’t even break a sweat. Best of all it’s cheap, and no harmful chemical on your skin or in your lungs.

    I know this sounds crazy but try WD40. I clean houses. I fine when I have a stubborn water stains I use WD40. It is a good water repellent. What I would do is spray WD40 on a cleaning towel. Make sure you have plenty of air if you are standing in the shower cleaning the shower doors open window if you can if you do not have a window use a fan. if it works rinse the doors real good.
    I will give you some advice when taking a shower rinse the shower after taking a shower and wipe down the shower it will save you a lot of work.

    If this does not work try apple cider vinegar with baking soda. I also have use shower clean on the doors of a shower. Try straight vinegar let soak try it more than once.
