Our window cleaning staff are well informed about rust stains occurring on glass. Rust simply occurs when there's moisture, air and metal all in one place. When you add windows to that combo rust will show up. The most likely place for this to happen is shower glass doors. especially if it doesn't have a vinyl coating for protection. Our professionals will use an appropriate copper scrubbing pad to make the rust go away. They use a copper pad with soft paddings and light application of pressure can avoid getting the glass scratched. This will leave your shower door with a much appealing look than before. The stain will be lubricated with a sudsy solution with a neutral pH value. The copper pad is then dipped in the solution and applied to the rusty area which effectvely removes the stain. While scrubbing, be alternating with wiping the area with a sponge wetted by the solution. This will also help remove any copper stuck on the glass. Rinse and repeat this task until you are satisfied that the rust is completely gone. When your satisfied, pour water on the entire shower door paying close attention to the areas you worked on. Then use your squeegee to whisk away water and unwanted moisture that may lead to future build-up. Finally, dry the surface with an alcohol dampened newspaper.
If your protective coating is still intact, the abrasive copper pad is not the solution. Instead, a solution containing oxalic acid may be the best way forward. Dilute the solution with one-quarter cup of water and mix it thoroughly. By use of a sponge, apply the solution to the rust stains. Repeat the process until you are satisfied. Then wash the shower with water and wipe dry with an alcohol damped newspaper to get an extra shine.
In order to avoid stains moving forward, keep metal items away from the shower doors and keep metal window frames as dry as possible. Adequately dry your bathroom area after use and keep it well ventilated by opening doors and windows. This will effectively avoid rust stains and unwanted mold.
