Care & Maintenance for Shower Enclosures

Shower enclosures are subject to buildup of soap, shampoo, mineral deposits found in the water, high humidity, and residue from hard water. All these issues combined can quickly build up on your glass, leaving unsightly “fog” and spots on your glass. To keep your shower looking great like the day it was installed, we recommend some quick and easy maintenance tips.

  1. The best way to keep the buildup manageable is to squeegee after each use. After you shower, take a shower squeegee, swipe the glass panels and door, and follow up with a microfiber cloth to remove streaks. You may rinse the glass with cold water after a shower; however, be careful not to spray directly on the door where water can spray out onto the floor. It is also important to wipe down the hardware with a microfiber cloth after each use to maintain the finish.
  2. Weekly, spray your glass with a solution of 50% vinegar and 50% water, spray it, and wipe it with a microfiber cloth. You can also use mild liquid soap and warm water with a soft cloth, rinsing, and drying with a microfiber cloth after rinsing. If you have hard water, this may require more frequent cleaning.
  3. After cleaning, you can also use MGM Foaming Glass Cleaner, available for purchase from Mike’s Glass and Mirror, with a microfiber cloth or an ammonia-free glass cleaner. Avoid cleaners with abrasives or harsh chemicals such as acid-based or bleach. Avoid any leave-on products that can get in the pores of the glass and can cause permanent staining.
