How to clean a shower screen: steps and recommendations

Cleaning your shower screen doesn't have to be a difficult task if you use the right technique. Let's take a look at how to do it.

Step 1: get rid of stubborn dirt

First, moisten the screen with water and apply a specific product or a white vinegar and water solution to remove the toughest grime. Leave it on for a few minutes and then scrub with a soft cloth or a non-abrasive sponge. Always wipe in a circular motion.

Step 2: rinse the screen

After removing the dirt, rinse the screen with water, making sure you remove all the residue from the cleaning or soap products. 

Step 3: dry the screen 

To avoid stains, it's important to dry the screen. You can use a soft cloth. Try using a hair dryer in hard-to-reach areas. 

Step 4: lime-free screen

Although this isn't something you should always do, you can occasionally prepare a mixture of white vinegar and bicarbonate to polish the screen and make it sparkle like new. To do this, apply the mix of the two products to the glass and leave it on for 10 to 15 minutes. Then wipe it with a damp cloth and dry it. 

Step 5: keep it clean 

Maintenance is the most important part of cleaning the screen. We recommend cleaning the screen to remove drops and soap residue after each use.

After every shower, spray water over it and use a squeegee to remove any moisture.

Pro-tip: if you want the screen to sparkle like new, after cleaning it you can wipe it with a cloth moistened with lemon juice.

How to clean a glass shower screen without scratching it

Glass screens require special care to avoid scratches. We recommend following the steps outlined earlier, but paying special attention to using soft and non-abrasive products.

You must also avoid tools that can scratch the glass, such as metal sponges or very hard brushes. 

How to keep your shower screen clean for longer

The trick to keeping your shower screen clean for longer is taking a minute to clean it after every use, rather than waiting until cleaning day. 

After each shower, rinse it to remove soap residue and avoid water spots.

In addition, every week, clean the screen thoroughly to keep it in perfect condition. Finally, remember to use anti-lime treatments to prevent lime sticking to the surface of the screen.

Although cleaning the shower screen can be a challenge, we hope these tips will help you keep it looking its best all the time.

Finally, it should be noted that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. So, when choosing a screen, go for one whose design and functionality make it easy to keep clean. If you choose a screen from SP PORCELANOSA Bath by Krion with the System-Glass finish, it will be much easier to maintain and clean. 

If you're looking to keep your shower screen spotless, the System-Glass treatment by Krion is the perfect solution. With its specific anti-stain, anti-lime, invisible and non-stick treatment, the glass on the shower screen has a special coating applied to it that makes water slide off quickly, avoiding the build-up of soap and lime residue. Thanks to this innovative technology, the screen will remain transparent and keep its natural shine intact.

That way, you'll be able to enjoy a shower screen that not only looks great, but is also hygienic and easy to maintain.
