  1. Prepare the vinegar

    Pour undiluted vinegar in an empty spray bottle.

  2. Spray the stalls with the vinegar

    Thoroughly spray the fiberglass stalls with the vinegar solution. You can use other cleaners as long as they are nonabrasive. Allow the vinegar or cleaners to soak into the walls for several minutes. This allows the solutions to dislodge any soap scum or water spots.

  3. Wipe down the walls

    Use a clean cloth to wipe down the stalls and remove any remaining vinegar.

  4. Make a baking soda paste

    Make a baking soda paste to remove any stubborn water spots or problem areas. In a container, add 1 part water and 2 parts baking soda. Mix the two together until a paste forms.

  5. Apply the paste

    Dip a cloth into the paste, and rub it over any remaining water spots.

  6. Rinse off the paste

    Rinse the walls with warm water until all the paste is removed.

  7. Dry the fiberglass stalls

    Wipe the stalls dry with a clean towel.
