To clean the luxury glass you will need:
In the external areas, start by passing a dust cloth or duster all over the glass. If you choose the cloth, it should be soft, to avoid blindex scratches, we don’t want to be looking at those annoying scratches. Prepare a mixture of half water and half neutral detergent and add one tablespoon of vinegar and one of alcohol. Put the mixture in a spray bottle. Spray the mixture you prepared all over the glass and let it act for a few minutes before taking it out. 5 to 10 is enough. Be careful not to do this process when the sun is hitting the window or door, as there is a chance of staining. Use a soft cloth moistened with water to remove the mixture from the glass. Finish with a dry cloth. You should rub it until the glass is transparent again.
The bathroom stall gives a little more work to clean, since it is always in contact with water. To avoid limestone stains, it is recommended to clean the box more frequently and while it is still wet. Turn on the shower and wet the whole luxury shower. Then soak a sponge in vinegar and carefully rub all over the glass. Let it sit for about ten minutes. Finish by rinsing with the shower water.
You can’t let it dry alone. Take a soft cloth and dry the whole box. For this step to be faster, wrap the cloth in a squeegee and go through the luxury shower. As the box is more likely to stain, you can use automotive wax to your advantage. After drying the box, apply a layer of wax along its entire length. The goal is to create a protective layer that can even help reduce the frequency of cleaning the luxury glass in the bathroom. Now that you know all of this, are you ready to clean your blindex?
