Whether you’ve chosen a corner shower or some other style for your South Riding dwelling, the maintenance info is the same. Starting with the hardware, it is crucial to note that brass hardware is the exception to the standard care rules. NO cleaners or detergents should be applied; brass hardware must be simply rubbed clean with a dry rag made of a soft, non-abrasive fabric. Moving onto other hardware finishes, it is ideal to dry these metal components after each shower to minimize mineral buildup and water spots. When this daily routine is not practical or when you notice a spot that needs additional attention, use a gentle, non-abrasive sponge or cloth in conjunction with a mild solution of gentle liquid soap and water to cleanse the metal pieces.

Since glass is the most notable material on a corner shower or other unit, it’s also critical for South Riding homeowners to use proper shower glass cleaning techniques. Start by considering a glass protectant like Rain-X, Invisible Shield, or CR Lawrence’s TPC Surface Protector Rinse and having it applied before the first use. Once the unit is in use, rinse and dry the glass every time the shower is used, or at least remove the water droplets with a squeegee or towel. By not allowing drops of water to remain, you are keeping mineral spots to a minimum. When it’s time for a weekly cleaning, only use mild, approved cleaning agents and non-abrasive rags.

Good daily care habits and use of appropriate cleaning materials make it easier to keep a glass shower looking wonderful!
