We've got nice red glass basin sinks in the bathroom. Although I try to rinse them out after each shave, they've managed to get areas with film soap scum deposits.  I certainly don't want to use abrasives on the glass and scratch them.  So far Windex (with Amonia D) seems to do the best, but if requires a lot of rubbing and scraping with my fingernail in areas where there is more build up.  Any recommendations for a good soap scum cleaner that is still gentle enough to not harm the glass surface?

Mr. Clean magic eraser! Works wonders and will not scratch anything. Keeps my glass shower doors looking new. Scrubbing Bubbles also works well.

You don't need anything fancy. Shaving soap is devoid of detergent. Any basic soap that has detergent including laundry, dishwasher, hand soap, body soap, shampoo etc.. will easily wash away the soap scum.

This^ Also I have this anti fog spray for mirrors and glasses etc. Just to try I tried it as a cleaner and it works well also,plus when it tried it acts as a barrier so the glass can just be wiped clean. Got it at academy by the rifles accessories for a dollar or 2.

Mr Clean Magic Eraser. I heard they are just melamine sponges and any generic one will work though.

Try any pretreatment laundry spray, like Spray and Wash or similar product: pretty amazing how well they work on soap scrum.

Thanks for all the great suggestions.  I found a M C Magic Eraser in my garage and it seemed to work great.  I'll try some of the other suggestions down the road.  Swmbo was beginning to express some concern about the situation, so this may have saved my shaving den.

White vinegar and a sponge will do the trick.

Magic eraser or just a wet cloth and some dish soap and a little elbow grease works for me.

i cleam my razor with a shot of barbacide and hot water letting it soak in there while putting my stuff away.  I then pour that in the sink with the plug in adding more hot water swish it around a bit and its ready for the next shave.  no scrubbing really needed if you do it daily

Another vote for white vinegar. I use 50/50 vinegar and water mixed with a few drops of dawn dish soap to clean almost all the surfaces in my home.

Scrubbing Bubbles spray.  We use it all the time, works wonders on sinks/tub/shower.

I've been using Soft Scrub and Comet soft cleanser cream on our glass shower and chrome faucet fixtures -- lightly scrubbing with the scotchbright side of a sponge -- for 14 years neither has been scratched yet.  Not only great at removing soap scum, also does a good job on hard water deposits (as long as they haven't been allowed to build up for an extended period of time).

+1 for Softscrub. A great cleaning product that works for most surfaces without scratching.
