Thank you @Bonnie McCarthy for your most informative article. I encourage clients where possible to avoid shower screens altogether. This bathroom is practical in it being essentially a 'wet room', and while its rather clinical in appearance now, it will become a plant haven in due course.

One more thing- for those that have the special coating on their glass to make it easier to clean, don't use the Solution above that contains Bleach!! It ruins the coating and will void your warranty. Some kind of citric cleaner left on briefly will do it, then a microfibre cloth. Squeegee after every shower. Obviously, this article isn't as relevant if you have the coatings-but as we all check to see if there is a miracle cleaner option, I'm pretty sure it will be seen by many! :) I do like our coating, just need to remind the teens to actually squeegee after their showers...hmm..any tips on getting them to remember? Save having the squeegee front and centre in the shower..(it is!!) :D

Forget glass cleaning forever. Just design a walk-in shower or wet room. So much more practical. If well designed, you will gain the advantage of having wheel chair access (you never know when that will be a plus!) and more space, and the cleaning woes are gone forever. Use extra-large format tiles or wet wall sheeting on the walls to end grout cleaning nightmares. In existing homes, consider whether the glass is really necessary. Often, it can be removed without causing any issues at all.
