Cleaning your enclosure safely and effectively takes the right cleaner. The key is to understand what types of cleaners to use and what to avoid. Many cleaners labeled for use in bathrooms can damage the metal finish or scratch the glass. The following is a short list of the type of products that should be avoided:
- Vinegar or vinegar-based products
- Abrasive or soft abrasive powders and liquids
- Bleach or bleach-based cleaners
- Steel or Teflon® pads
In looking for the best cleaner that’s also gentle on the finish and glass, BEMA (The Bath Enclosure Manufactures Association) tested some of the most popular cleaners and found Comet® NON-abrasive Bathroom Cleaner to be the most effective while still being gentle on the enclosure.
We have also had good luck with Soft Scrub® with lemon and a soft cloth. As with any cleaning product, test on a small, hidden area first to make sure the product is safe for your surface.
