MAINTAINING YOUR TUB OR SHOWER ENCLOSURE
ABRASIVE CLEANER WARNING
Do not use abrasive or acid-based cleaners when cleaning your Cardinal Shower Enclosure. There are some powerful cleaners on the market today. Abrasive or acid-based cleaners can scar the metal or glass of your Cardinal Shower Enclosure. It probably wouldn't happen with a single application, but it's best to use appropriate types of cleaners all the time.
To keep the stainless steel of your Skyline enclosure looking great for years to come, we recommend the following procedures:
After each use simply drying with a squeegee or towel will keep the glass clean for a long period, and make it difficult for mineral spots to form. The glass needs to be cleaned every few weeks using a damp microfiber cloth and a mild detergent (such as Dawn or 7th Generation) to break down soaps, oils, and conditioners from the glass. General glass cleaners are also suitable, however most of these are finishing agents rather than cleaners, and are an added expense that is not required.
Hard Water Maintenance
In hard water areas, or areas where water drops dry and leave a noticeable dust mark, a build-up of minerals may occur on the protective treatment. While these may not be removed easily with the mild detergent, mild acids will often remove the marks quickly. As needed white vinegar should be used to wipe down the glass with a soft sponge. Keep in mind the vinegar may be diluted, however dilution reduces the effectiveness.
*Note these may damage the treatment and void any warranty
Approved Cleaning Products
The below have been tested for compatibility with C10, however there are no specific products that must be used. We feel you should not be required to purchase extra products in order to keep your glass clean. All you should need for beyond 10 years is a squeegee, a mild liquid dish soap like your dishwashing liquid, and white vinegar.
Any product that does not fall into the three prohibited categories above will be fine, and below is a short list of other products:
