Glass Shower Door Care & Cleaning

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.  
Also, do not use steel wool, stiff wire brushes or other items that may scratch or damage the glass or metal surfaces.  Always test a discreet area first before tackling the entire door.  For further inquiries, contact customer service at customersolutions@deltashowerdoors.com or call 1-800-964-4850.
