How do you clean the sliding glass doors on showers?

I just got a new shower with sliding glass doors & i had it for 2 weeks & already i am noticing that the soapy water dries on the shower doors & it is hard to clean it. I been cleaning it with windex, but that alone won't take off those water spots on the glass doors. I am thinking that may be hard water spots & may need to clean it with some kind of cleaner that cleans hard water spots.
The walls of the shower i just spray with a bathroom cleaner & wipe, but the floor of the shower is a little harder to clean, I been standing in shower & bending over so far that i can reach the floor which is hard, or get on my hands & knees to clean floor.
For those of you who have showers, how do you clean your glass doors & the floor of the shower & what cleaning products do you use?

  • I use white vinegar on the water spots, use a sponge, rinse and then finish with windex, on the floor, yes hands and knees I use comet, and use a bucket to rinse it all out, we have this weird lip where the tile and the floor meet, and if I don't scrub it it will get mildew.

  • I spray rain-x on my shower doors after I've cleaned the glass with vinegar and water.

  • Magic Eraser is the best.

    Once you try it you'll never go back to anything else.

  • There's a spray you can spritzz on both the tile and glass every time you shower, which makes cleaning easier.

  • Soft Scrub works on just about anything. Make sure you use a good, stiff nylon scrubber. Use after shower sprays and shower squeegees in the future to prevent build-up.

  • We squeegee it down after every shower, and it stays very clear. We use a magic eraser to clean it, and then wipe it with a Rain-X wipe so it repels water.
