It is important to keep your glass clean. Glass that is neglected will accumulate water spots, eventually turning into mineral deposits.
The best way to keep your glass free of potentially damaging water spots is to squeegee the glass after every use. Regular cleaning will save you a lot of work if deposits are not allowed to accumulate.
Hinges and other hardware maintenance
The best way to maintain hinges and other hardware is to wipe them down after every use. When the hardware is kept clean, it will not collect mineral deposits that require using soap solution to remove. After your shower, use a dry towel to dry the hinges thoroughly.
Weekly cleaning is suggested if you cannot dry your hinges after every use. Use a mild soap, warm water mixture, and soft, non-abrasive cloth. After you have cleaned the hardware, rinse it thoroughly with clean, warm water and dry it.
Never use abrasive cleansers of any kind on hinges and other hardware. Many components are coated with a clear lacquer that will be irreparably damaged if subjected to harsh abrasive chemicals or scrubbing devices.
