Best way to clean coated glass and porcelain tile
March 23, 2014 in Design Dilemma
I have just renovated the master bathroom. Now I need to know how to best keep it looking spotless. I have porcelain tile and diamond fusion glass (I think). Polished nickel fixtures. Please don't tell me to squeegee everything and/or wipe down every time I shower. I will go mad! Would a wipe down once a week be enough? I have sealed the grout as best I could.

The glass installer told me to use a mild soap to clean glass. What is a mild soap?

I love micro fiber cloths for cleaning, they leave no film you just use hot water and make sure to not use fabric softener when you wash them As for the squeegee thing, I have a very attractive one hanging under the shower head and most of the time it gets used everytime we shower, it makes ahuge difference in how much work it can be to clean.

I've heard of folks spraying Rain-X or similar product on clear class shower doors, but haven't tried it personally.

Patricia and njs - thanks for your advice! I bought some microfiber cloths and they are not absorbent (they were cheap). Maybe I need to find microfiber that looks like terrycloth. I want something to suck up the water. Maybe I'll just use an old towel.
