I recently moved to an apartment with the bathroom having glass shower door.
This is the first time I have a bathroom with glass shower door.
I am still trying to find the best tools to clean and wipe the dirt on the glass without worrying to leave any scratches.
Any brand mentioned is welcome

@lleonyta, I've got something like this and it works a treat. You can pick one up at most hardware stores - maybe even at a supermarket or $2 shop.
It's also best to scrape the glass down every couple of times you shower. That way you don't have a whole lot of grimy soap build-up when you go to clean it properly.
Hi @lleonyta, I have a small shower squeegee that I leave in the shower and give the glass a quick clean a couple of times a week. You can pick these up for only a couple of dollars. Mine is a Mr Clean Shower Squeegee but I know there's a Sabo branded one too. I also use glass cleaner and give the panel a good wipe with a paper towel or cloth every few weeks too.
Thanks guys for the suggestions! I haven't got squeegee, so I'll definitely try!
Do you guys have tried to use any spray to go with the squeegee?
At the moment I am using this Chux bathroom duet cloth:
and Bam foam spray:
However I find the spray is running out so quickly, I have only used it for a few times, and it's almost finished! It's also quite pricey. So I am looking for an alternative.
@lleonyta, I only use spray when I give the bathroom a proper clean and I go for Shower Power. My one tip when using it would be to make sure the room is well ventilated. It's really potent!
@lleonyta & all, I came across a company (a while ago, & forgotten name) on the net that was promoting their cleaning innovation, that removed calcification build up from glass shower screens. Strangely, they openly declared that it was 5000 grit Wet & Dry Paper, which is readily available (used in auto paintshops), & hardly patentable.
Armed with that tip, I bought some sheets on eBay:
This morning I wet the paper, & with very light pressure, rubbed over the glass, rinsing the glass & paper as I went. I then did the tiles too. As you're doing it, you'll notice that as the surface gets cleaner, the paper drags less & very soon glides over the surface when it's clean.
The cubicle came up like brand new, so I'm very happy.
I can understand this could work,Car enthusiests use this method to show their cars,A very fine steel wool can give the same result.
To stop scum and residue build up all together DON'T use cake soap, USE liquid soap/body wash.
But if you already have scum/residue build up, simply water and 'Magic Eraser' sponge, available at Bunnings.
