Glass shower doors, while adding beauty to your bathroom, can become
a huge headache when trying to keep them clear and free of water
spots. Water damage (caused by the chemicals in our water) can occur
on new glass within 2 months of installation. Since glass is porous,
the hard water stains you eventually see, is in the pores of the
glass not on the surface.
People then tend to use all types of over-the-counter cleaners that
in most cases donít get the job done and in some instances will
scratch the glass. Some of the products contain abrasives which is one
of the causes of the scratches.
People also will use razor blades, abrasive sponges, brillo pads,
and steel wool some of which also cause scratches. Razor blades, when
used properly (going in one direction on a wet surface), will not
scratch glass. Very Fine steel wool (Type-OOOO) also wonít scratch
glass, so if you try removing the spotting yourself, this is the type
When lawn sprinklers continue to hit your windows day after day, the
same thing happens. You get what looks like permanent water spots on
the glass, which wonít come off with a regular cleaning. This
situation will only get worse if the sprinkler spray isnít adjusted.
We have a way of removing hard water stains from shower doors (and
other glass) without using any type of acid. And our product wonít
harm any surface in your home. We then apply a hydro-phobic sealer
called Hydro Shield which fills the pores in the glass. The water
spotting now is on the sealer, not in the pores, which makes the
surface 75% easier to clean.

Some more before and after pics:
The best thing to do is after the last shower of the day, wipe the
glass down with the towel. Then once a week clean the glass with a
mild cleaner. Even if you completely ignore cleaning the glass for
months, the residue will wipe off although a little more elbow grease
Besides glass shower doors, windows, and windshields, the sealer can
also be used on ceramic tile and grout, porcelain toilets and sinks
(no more rings in the porcelain), granite and other natural stones
whether it is a floor or counter top. The sealer comes with up to a 15
year warranty against staining, depending on the surface. The surfaces
are properly prepared and the sealer is professionally applied. It
will make the surfaces 75% easier to clean and the surfaces will look
newer for a longer period of time.
