DIY Shower Glass Frosting Removal
Let us dive into some easy-peasy and inexpensive ways to remove frost from the shower glass and make it usable again, take these steps:
Use Of Knife
You can easily pry up the frosting from the shower glass by using a knife. Use a ruler to guide you and for making measurements and mark the area in which you will pry the frost up. Pry the frost chunk by chunk from the glass until all is done. It is a little hard work but you can do it easily at home. You will be able to scrap off a great amount of frost. However, it will not be perfectly removed yet.
Use Of Blade
This will require great care because the blade can be dangerous to use. So, wear gloves and start scraping off the remaining frost by snipping it downwards with the razor blade. Gently do the scrapping process in order to avoid the scratches and cracks. This will remove the frost to a great amount.
Scrubbing the Glass
The razor blade will hopefully remove all the frost present on the shower glass. However, if you are still seeing little bits of it, then you can scrub it off. With the help of the gentle scrubbing of the glass with steel wool or some other scrubbing tool, you will roughen and loosen the frost present on the shower glass.
Then you can wear your precautionary gloves again and start scrapping off the glass again. Do it until every little jiff of it is removed from the glass. In this way, you will be able to get rid of the frost completely and cleanly.
Clean The Shower Glass
The final step of removing the frost from the glass in order to ensure perfection in it is its cleaning.
You can do the cleaning by DIY methods i.e. using vinegar, etc. or you can remove it with commercial glass cleaner. Take a clean dry cloth or sponge and apply the cleaner on it.
Carefully rub the cloth or sponge on the glass and remove every deposit of frost present on it. You may need to repeat the cleaning process several times in order to make sure that the frost is removed perfectly and glass starts looking crystal clear.
Hence, this is a great way to restore your glass to its foundational shape and make use of it again. However, if there is some structural damage in it, you would then have to hire a professional shower glass repair service. And, if the damage is irreparable, then get ready for a new shower glass installation!
