How to Care for Your Bath and Shower Doors
- How to Care for Your Bath and Shower Doors
- For glass surfaces, use a quality glass cleaner and a clean cloth to clean the mirror surface. Carefully follow the glass cleaner manufacturer’s instructions.
- Occasionally wipe the doors with a mild detergent diluted in water to keep the glass panels and anodized aluminum parts looking new.
- Never use bristle brushes, abrasive sponges, scouring powder or sharp instruments on metalwork or glass panels. They will scratch some metal and glass surfaces.
- For metal surfaces, never use abrasive cleansers or cleaners containing ammonia, bleach, acids, waxes, alcohol or solvents as they may damage the finish. Use of harsh cleaning agents may void Sterling’s warranty obligations.
- Do not let cleaners sit or soak on surfaces.
- To avoid soap deposits or lime buildup in hard-water areas, make a point to wipe the door dry after each use.
- Rinse and wipe fixtures after each use to prevent soap buildup.

General Care and Cleaning
For best results, keep the following in mind:
- Test first. Always test cleaning solutions on an inconspicuous area first before applying to the entire surface.
- Wipe clean. Wipe surfaces clean and rinse completely with water immediately after applying cleaner. Rinse and dry any overspray that lands on nearby surfaces.
- Don’t let cleaners soak. Do not allow cleaners to sit or soak.
- Avoid abrasive materials. Use a soft, dampened sponge or cloth. Never use an abrasive material such as a brush or scouring pad to clean surfaces.
