Cleaning & Care Tips

Cleaning and caring for a Delta shower door is similar to that for any glass surface or most bathroom fixtures. For regular cleaning efforts, use ONLY mild detergents with warm, soapy water. Be sure to use ONLY a non-abrasive cloth or sponge to prevent scratches to glass or the metal components. Always rinse surfaces thoroughly with water.
Before cleaning a Delta® shower door with any commercial cleaning product, test a small, inconspicuous area and inspect for any glass or metal finish discoloration or staining. Because of the wide variety of cleaning products available today and the unknown chemical contents, it’s best to look for the following chemicals in the label. Delta® does not recommend the use of cleaning products that contain any of the following chemicals:

  • Naphtha
  • Hydrogen Peroxide Solution (common household peroxide)
  • Toluene
  • Ethyl Acetate
  • Lye (common in drain cleaner)
  • Acetone
  • Ammonia

Use of products containing these chemicals can cause the products to discolor and will void the warranty. While an initial use may not reveal any issues, continued or frequent use can cause harm over time. This can result in discolored finish or loss of glass clarity. 

The glass features a special chemical coating on the inside of the shower glass called ‘Spot Guard’. This coating is applied at the factory using a special application process that cleans the glass, prepares the glass surface and bakes the coating onto the glass.  A sticker is used to identify the correct side of the shower so it can be installed correctly.  It’s strongly recommend that steel wool or other aggressive scrub brushes should not be used. These materials can mechanically damage the coating and possibly scratch the glass if used on the glass door panel. Always test a discreet area first before tackling the entire door.
