    Default Shower Glass

    New shower with glass door,sticker on glass said,glass is porous and to clean with squeegee or similar,this to stop build up of whatever it is that causes glass to become hazy.Have done that but still getting haze.
    there is a product that one can purchase at great cost that gets it off.
    As this is a particularly interesting subject,please do not all answer at once.

    Forgot the question...is there a chemist type out there that know what to use to remove the above?Jiff will not do it!

    What type of glass is it, tinted, coated, is it a framed or framless door and panels (diff glass req' depending on)? Look for the S logo and associated numbers and letters, usually in the bottom corner of a pane or for doors and panels on a edge, post back results. eg's Metro Toughened

    Many things can permanently discolour or damge glass (a hammer will do ) but usually in combination with sun or runoff from other material such as aluminium, oxides and the like.

    Found this on the Metro site.

    I believe that build-up is a self defence mechanism so nobody has to witness seeing you in the shower?

    Godfather's right. It saves you having to install a "modesty shield" strip on the glass to protect unsuspecting intruders into the bathroom.

    You could try CLR (Calcium/Lime/Rust stain or film remover), available from good hardware stores everywhere. Not particularly cheap but it works and might help you. You may remember the TV ads.

    The build up is probably soap residue. Usually Kerosene will do a decent job of getting rid of it.

    Once you've got rid of it, those "spray after you shower" cleaners are good, and you can also get the glass coasted to make them easier to clean.

    Edit: If it already has a coating Kero could cause all manner of pain. Consult manufacturer/vendor.

    Edit 2: Install SP2

    Edit 3: Get FireFox.

    Old Ninja seems to have a fixation on computers,should tell him no XP in my shower. and I don't put terps on it either,ouch.

    If it is soap/hard water precipitate, then that white stuff with small particles in it - Jiff? Ajax? - with the "without harsh scratching" advertising pitch, plus elbow grease, works wonders.

    Make sure you do not leave it in the shower, otherwise some idiot will mistake it for shampoo or conditioner or something, and burn all their hair off.
