Recommended Glass Maintenance and Cleaners

Squeegeeing the glass frequently, then drying with a soft cloth is highly recommended.  Using a squeegee after each shower helps keep spots and scale from accumulating on glass components.  Holcam also recommends cleaning the glass regularly with a glass cleaner while following the recommendations of the Bath Enclosures Manufacturing Association (BEMA).  Avoid abrasives, bleach, acidic or vinegar based cleaners and scrubbing pads.  Read labels on cleaning products thoroughly before using.  If your glass is coated or treated with surface protectants, follow the instruction on the labels attached to the glass.

A short list of cleaning agents that should be avoided because they either damage the metal or scratch the enclosures glass surface includes:

  • Abrasive or soft abrasive powders and liquid
  • Bleach or bleach-based cleaners
  • Steel or Teflon pads
  • Do not use bristle brushes
