Proper Acrylic Shower Cleaning & Cleaning Shower Glass

Follow these easy steps for shower cleaning and cleaning shower glass in your new acrylic shower.

Choosing a new acrylic shower was your first step toward lightening the load of your chores around the house. Unlike showers with tile and grout that can be a long-term maintenance headache, acrylic shower cleaning is fast and easy! 

Take a Look! >>

STEP 1. Choose the Right Shower Cleaning Products

While acrylic shower walls are completely water-resistant, many feature coatings that can be damaged by choosing the wrong shower cleaning products. The best options are a soft cloth and simple, non-abrasive cleaners, including Formula 409 or a solution of one part water to one part white vinegar. Traditional glass cleaner or the 50/50 vinegar solution, are also ideal for cleaning shower glass. Consider using a diluted bleach solution for disinfecting surfaces as needed. A full list of the best shower cleaning products (and those to avoid) is available on our blog.

Remember: do not use abrasive cleaners like Soft Scrub or scouring pads to clean your acrylic. These will wear down any protective or antimicrobial coatings.

STEP 2. Start with Niches and Soap Dishes

Begin your shower cleaning process by getting into any nooks and crannies that need attention. Soapy water can settle in the corners of acrylic shower niches, soap dishes, and shelves, so use your soft cloth and preferred shower cleaning solution to clean those areas first.  

STEP 3. Cleaning Shower Glass & Walls from the Top Down

Continue by cleaning your acrylic shower panels from the top down. This is good advice for cleaning any room or surface! This process lets you easily direct any dust and debris not collected by your cloth down to lower surfaces where you can wipe it away when you reach the bottom of the shower.  

Simple circular or back-and-forth cleaning motions should easily remove any dirt or soap-scum from your shower walls. For stubborn build-up, spray on the 50/50 vinegar solution, allow it to sit for 10 minutes, and then wipe clean. Use the same process and recommended glass cleaners for cleaning shower glass, including glass shower doors and panels.

STEP 4. Finish with Your Shower Base

Most acrylic showers will also have an acrylic base, so you can use the same acrylic shower cleaning products from top to bottom. This is also true for tub-shower combinations that have an acrylic bathtub! Simply spray on your cleaner, let sit, and wipe clean as before.

STEP 5. Repeat Weekly Shower Cleaning

A quick-and-easy wipe-down of your shower on a weekly basis will keep soap scum from building up so your shower always looks like new! For showerheads and faucets, materials like fiberglass tubs or shower bases, and other non-acrylic materials, please refer to the manufacturer’s recommendations to choose the right cleaning products for those components.
