Default Protection After Cleaning

Hi Guys!

I'm wondering what everyone here is using after cleaning their bathrooms etc to protect the surfaces? Similar to wax on car paint, is there a product you recommend to apply to say shower glass to keep it clean?

Thanks!
Amanda

I saw something recently about using Rain-X on shower doors. Haven't tried it myself.

Something I've been saying to my customers for 35yrs,; You know the towel you just used to dry yourself, use it on your shower and tub when you are done.

Reduces the frequency of repetitive cleaning.

I've been treating our shower door for 16 years with Rain-X, the water just runs right off. I use a hand wand to rinse it down after my shower. You can then either wipe it dry, squeegee it dry or use a daily shower spray. I just treated the door earlier this week.

Tiles could be waxed but you have to watch getting paste wax in the grout. My wife did that once in our old house and it took quite a while to get the green wax out of the white grout.

Thanks for the responses guys!

I never thought of rainx but that is a very good idea and easy to get hold of. Think I'll give that a go.

Thanks again!

I agree with the rain-x recommendation. I also use that once a year on the exterior of my windows. Works great!
