Fibreglass is a durable but inexpensive building material, making it popular with homeowners. Fibreglass shower stalls typically have two textures within the seamless shower; nubby textures for safety and smooth surfaces for aesthetics. Dirt and grime collect in the textured portions, and the smooth portions eventually dull no matter how often you clean your fibreglass shower. Daily cleaning can be done with a mild dish soap and water, but sometimes you need more cleaning power. With a little bit of elbow grease and a few extra cleaning steps every few months, you can make your fibreglass shine like new again.

  1. 1

    Spray the shower stall with your shower sprayer or use a sponge to wet down the shower stall.

  2. 2

    Sprinkle baking soda onto your damp sponge. Add enough to just make a paste.

  3. 3

    Wipe the shower stall lightly with the baking soda paste on the sponge. Add baking soda or water to the sponge as needed. Keep the sponge damp to keep the baking soda from becoming too abrasive.

  4. 4

    Rinse the shower stall well.

  5. 5

    Dip a clean, soft cloth into automotive polishing compound and lightly rub any scratches or dull spots. As with the baking soda, do not rub too hard, just use light pressure.

  6. 6

    Wipe away any polishing compound after using it to repair any problems.

  7. 7

    Buff the shower stall with a clean, soft cloth and automotive cream wax. Apply only a thin coat and remove any excess that does not buff into the fibreglass.

Tips and warnings

  • Condition your fibreglass shower stall with polishing compound and automotive wax at least twice a year to keep it shiny.
  • Dry your shower after each use to keep it shiny longer. Use a squeegee or a towel designated for drying the shower.
  • Keep all cleaning products and automotive products away from children and pets.
