Soap scum and hard water can etch and discolor your glass over time. After awhile, it can get so bad, it's difficult to see through it! Water spots are created when water beads up and then evaporates, leaving the minerals behind on your glass. And soap scum, is a mixture of soap, body oils, dirt, and water. This creates the milky appearance of your glass enclosure.
