Glass Shower Door Care & Cleaning
If your shower door does not include a factory applied coating, you will need to take extra steps to keep your doors clean. To ensure a long lasting finish, you should always wipe down your shower enclosure with a towel after each use. Never use a scouring agent to clean the hardware or the glass. Keeping your new glass shower enclosure in pristine condition is important.
Two primary materials are used to manufacture your new bath enclosure: tempered glass and anodized aluminum. For occasional, more concentrated cleaning efforts, we find that Lysol Bathroom Cleaner works extremely well. Be sure that any over spray falling on the aluminum frame is rinsed thoroughly and dried.
Many over-the-counter cleaners, if applied to the aluminum and left on, will harm the metal finish and cause permanent damage, even though their directions indicate safe use on shower doors.
