How To Clean Your LuxStone Shower With Ease

7 min read
  • Shower Features

You don’t have to be a professional cleaner to keep your KOHLER® LuxStone shower sparkling! It takes only a few seconds after each use to prevent the build-up of mildew and soap scum. And when it comes time for a periodic deep clean, you’ll find that the process is much easier than expected thanks to LuxStone®’s advanced surface treatments.

Read on to discover what makes LuxStone showers different, which cleaning supplies you’ll need to gather, and how to maintain a squeaky-clean appearance!

LuxStone’s Easy-To-Clean Materials

Your bathroom is supposed to be a relaxing oasis, not a source of added stress. That’s why every element of the LuxStone shower system is engineered to make the cleaning process a breeze, saving you time and energy. 

The walls are designed to fit seamlessly together without grout, so you can mark scrubbing off your to-do list. 

The base aids in keeping your shower clean, too. The recessed drains prevent water pooling that causes soap scum and unsightly rings around the edges of your shower.

Finally, CleanCoat technology is a factory-installed treatment used to keep your glass door clean. You’ll love how water quickly beads and runs off treated glass products instead of calcifying on the surface.

What To Gather

With the help of these easy-to-clean materials, you’ll find it only takes a few supplies to make your shower shine.

In fact, many of the harsh cleaning chemicals you’ve accumulated over the years for scrubbing traditional tubs and showers should not be used on your LuxStone shower system.

Here’s what to include in your cleaning caddy.

The 4 Cleaning Items You Need:

  • Damp sponge
  • Mild detergent or cleaner
  • Shower squeegee
  • Soft cloth

Shower Cleaning Tools

You can toss those bristle brushes, abrasive sponges, and sharp instruments! With LuxStone, there’s no need to scrub the glass panels or anodized aluminum. Rough shower cleaning tools can actually scratch the glass and metal surfaces.

Opt for gentle tools like a damp sponge to wipe down the shower. You should also purchase a shower squeegee to clean your glass doors, as well as a soft cloth for the final drying.

Shower Cleaning Products 

There’s no need for harsh cleaners containing abrasives, ammonia, bleach, acids, waxes, alcohol or solvents either! In fact, they may damage the finish.

All you’ll need is a mild detergent or cleaner. You can even dilute it with water. For a quick clean, you may not need a cleaning product at all!

What To Do During Daily Cleanings

We recommend wiping down your LuxStone shower after each use. By taking just a few seconds to do this, you’ll keep your shower looking brand new. 

First, grab your shower squeegee and swipe over the glass door. This will help prevent water spots from forming. Next, use a soft cloth to wipe down the wall and any remaining wet areas in the shower. By leaving your shower dry, you will prevent soap deposits and lime buildup. 

It’s that simple! You’ll be surprised by how long you can go in between deep cleanings when you’ve kept up with daily maintenance.

What To Do During Deep Cleans

Less frequently, you’ll need to set aside time for a deep clean. Here are pro-tips for each part of your shower.

Tip #1: Cleaning Shower Walls

Do not let cleaners soak on surfaces. But don’t worry, it’s especially easy to spray down the whole shower space with the HydroRail showerhead!

We recommend testing your cleaning product on a small area before applying to the entire surface.

 

Tip #2: Cleaning Shower Accessories

Accessories like the shower barre adds clean lines to your shower space.

LuxStone accessories are designed for easy cleaning. Many are adjustable, removable and dishwasher-safe. Just remember not to use abrasive cleansers or acidic solvents on the surface of metal accessories as they may cause dullness or discoloration. 

 

 

Tip #3: Cleaning Faucets

For example, the Oil-Rubbed Bronze finish should be cleaned with Windex for the best results. For Polished Chrome finishes, steer clear of abrasive cleaners that cause dullness over time.  

 

Tip #4: Cleaning Glass Shower Doors
