Triple track shower door tips?

We love our large bathroom and shower!
Cleaning the overlapping doors not so much....
cleaning/drying the bottom track not at all!

The bottom track always holds some water. The little cut outs in the sides
to allow water to drain are not quite all the way to the bottom of the track.
Even if they were - there would still be water/soap scum left behind.
Is there some sort of doo-dad that can be made or purchased to wipe out that
bottom track??
I tried slitting a sponge so it had "fingers" on one side but the sponge is too soft and won't stay in the bottom of the track as I swipe it along the track.

Any suggestions?

Would you believe that we do not use the doors in ours because of those problems. We have installed a shower curtain and it has made life easier.

We use a squeegee after every shower. When showering, we try to make sure the middle door is centered. Then we can slide it left + right to get all of the extra water off. That keeps the cleaning at bay.

For washing the bottom track of the shower door, my wife found a skinny brush that fits into the track.

I've noticed the crud in the tracks, sprayed some of the scrubbing bubbles cleaner in the tracks and used the shower nozzle to rinse. No problem as of yet.

Have been thinking of installing a shower curtain, because I am not a fan of shower doors just for that reason too. Hard to clean.
