How to clean the shower tray

To keep the shower tray clean and free of limescale, it is important to adopt a regular cleaning routine.
Before you start cleaning, remove items such as shampoo, soap or sponges from the shower tray. Then rinse it thoroughly with warm water to start removing the first layer of dirt and soap residue. If you find limescale, use a specific limescale cleaner. Apply it to the shower tray, following the manufacturer's instructions. Leave for the recommended time to dissolve the limescale. Scrub with a sponge or non-abrasive brush then rinse thoroughly with warm water.
In order not to spoil the original beauty of the surface, always use a soft-bristled brush to remove stubborn dirt or limescale.
As much as possible, after each use, try to rinse the shower tray with warm water to remove soap residue and prevent dirt build-up. Additionally, do not forget to check the shower tray periodically for any signs of wear or damage and take prompt action.

Cleaning resin shower trays

Cleaning a resin shower tray requires delicate care to preserve its beauty and durability.
Due to the composition of this material, we recommend that you rinse the shower tray with warm water to remove soap residue and surface dirt after each use. In addition, use a neutral, non-abrasive cleaner, such as dishwashing liquid or a cleaner suitable for resin surfaces. Do not use aggressive or abrasive chemicals that could damage the resin.

If there are persistent stains, you can safely use a solution of warm water and baking soda. Apply this mixture to the stain and rub gently with a sponge or soft cloth. Then rinse thoroughly. Dry the shower tray with a soft towel or sponge to prevent water stains or limescale deposits.
Never ignore the manufacturer's specific instructions for cleaning and maintenance of a resin shower tray, as they may vary depending on the type of resin used. Always take care and pay attention when cleaning the resin shower tray and this will ensure its beauty and function for a long time.

The best product for shower trays

There are several products on the market specifically formulated for cleaning and caring for shower trays. Although personal preferences may vary, a popular and highly recommended product for cleaning shower trays is a multipurpose cleaner. These cleaners are specially formulated to remove dirt, soap residue and limescale common on shower trays, including resin trays.

Multipurpose cleaners, such as Chanteclair Bathroom Cleaner, spray are generally non-abrasive and safe to use on a variety of surfaces, including acrylic, enamel and resin shower trays and other common materials, such as ceramics. They contain effective cleaning agents to get rid of stains and dirt without damaging the surface.

You can use most all-purpose cleaners directly on the surface or dilute them in water, depending on the manufacturer's instructions. They are often easy to apply and allowing you to gently rub the surface with a sponge or soft cloth to remove dirt.

Ultimately, choosing the best shower tray product depends on your preferences, but first and foremost, on the type of material the shower tray is made of.
