Donna Pace- BlahutSusanSherrie


what is the best way to clean them so they don't get scratched. I've heard baking soda, vinegar. I use Simple Green BECAUSE IT'S SAFE.

    The cleaning "sponge" should also be non-abrasive...a green kitchen type scrubbie can scratch.

    Ive read, yet to try ... Suave Daily Clarifying Shampoo + baking soda. To keep them clean tubs and shower walls .. and glass doors clean longer? Apply Turtle wax 2x a year to seal the pores. Do NOT apply on floors!

    Oven cleaner cleans a fiberglass shower better then anything. Yes you defintately need to ventilate and use a mask. But spray well..Leave on for about 20 mins then scrub off with warm water. Works great on shower doors also. I owned a commercial cleaning company for many years and this is what we used. Also the turtle wax does work to seal.

    This is Koler's cleaning guidelines. Wipe out bath/whirlpool after each use with soft cloth or squeegee. Do not use abrasive cleaners. Avoid using aerosol products on the bath surface. How to flush your whirlpool Cleaning instructions listed pertain only to their corresponding material, and are not intended for faucet cleaning. Faucet cleaning instructions for chrome and vitreous china. Success with cleaners and procedures is dependent upon such factors as the hardness and temperature of the water, using exact measurements of ingredients, changes in cleaning formulas and the condition of the product being cleaned. Since there are variations within these factors, Kohler cannot guarantee the effectiveness of the formulas mentioned. Care Tip To restore dull or scratched units: Apply white automotive polishing compound with a clean cloth. Rub scratches and dull areas vigorously. Wipe off residue. Follow with a coat of white automotive paste wax. Do not wax areas where you walk or stand. Damaged surfaces can be repaired. Check the Yellow Pages under "Fiberglass-Repair."

    Try Turtle Wax Polishing Compound (from the automotive department). Apply with a cloth in a circular motion, let sit for a bit, and then just wipe off. Easy and no fumes. Works amazingly well on anything with water spots - shower doors, windows, etc.

    KaBoom is THE BEST bathroom cleaner around!!! I moved in to a rental with a really scumy tub and it just dissolved it all off. You might have to let it sit for a while after you spray it on, (which is safe to do). It is safe for all types of tubs and sinks. I don't use anything else.

    Oh, after spraying with KaBoom and letting sit for awhile then wipe in down and rinse off!
