Swanstone Shower Wall

I had a bathroom Shower re modeled with Swanstone material. I need information on how to clean the walls. I can't use Powder cleaners because they leave scratches on the walls surface. What can I use to clean the surface of the wall and what materials can I use to do the cleaning, and get hard water build up off the wall without leaving marks or scratches.

I agree; however to remove hard water salt deposits, a scouring cleanser wouldn't be needed anyway, so Ajax etc are out right from the start. You'll need to dissolve these marks away using a mild acidic product for showers. It'll say so on the label...they're usually foaming bubbles because the acid needs time to work.

Swanstone Shower Wall

I just finished one. swan corp has a 800# you can call for info
i used denatured alcohol during construction which they called for, worked really well. any solvent without a petroleum base if i remember right
insted of pulling the metal cap under the lid i punched a bunch of small holes in it like a salt shaker, easier to control the flow from can

The older I get the better I was
