Cleaning Tips for Your Glass Shower

    (Provided by ABC Glass & Mirror, Inc. - Thursday, March 16, 2017)

Put these cleaning tips to use to ensure that your glass shower retains its beauty and lives up to its potential to transform your bathroom’s ambience for the better. While clean glass immediately glamorizes your bathroom with modern charm and elegance, dirty glass has the opposite effect. The good news is that you can take steps to make your cleaning easier and more effective.


What’s a better cleaning tip than one that allows you work less for the same results? The best way to be successful in keeping your shower glass clean is to reduce the need for washing in the first place. The next time you thoroughly clean your shower enclosure, finish up by adding a glass protectant. There are a number of spray-on coatings sold for this purpose, and you could select one of these. Alternatively, you could decide to apply a long lasting EnduroShield coating.

EnduroShield is a spray-on protectant that bonds to the surface of the glass and repels oils as well as water, which can be tainted by corrosive elements. The layer of EnduroShield is environmentally safe and fully transparent. It will both keep your shower class clean for a longer period of time and make cleaning success easier to achieve when needed. Depending on the quality of your tap water, adding EnduroShield can even obliterate the need to squeegee or towel dry the enclosure after showering.

What Products to Use

The last thing you want is to damage the glass in the process of trying to scrub off soap scum or a mineral deposit. This is why using the appropriate cleaning agents and materials is vital. When cleansing a glass shower, the rule of thumb is to stay away from harsh or abrasive cleaners and scrubbing pads. The company that installed your enclosure should have a list of approved cleaning products. If you have ShowerGuard Glass or glass treated with EnduroShield, you can check these companies’ websites for approved cleaners.

How Often to Clean

You want to clean your shower glass before it starts looking bad. Keeping problems at bay is better than having to devote a great deal of time to cleaning neglected glass. A weekly cleaning is ideal for many. If you have ShowerGuard Glass or an EnduroShield coating, the appropriate website can also give you info on the appropriate frequency of cleaning. Whatever cleaning schedule you decide upon, be sure to do the following:

• Clean both sides of glass.
• Clean the hardware with a soft cloth and mild soap and water solution (just water if it is brass).
• Pay attention to easily missed nooks and crannies like seams and door tracking.
