How do you keep these clean? As soon as splashes go on the glass it streaks and looks REALLY awful.

Someone mentioned giving them a good clean, waxing them with windscreen stuff for cars then the liquid runs off?

Any advice?

We used to just wash it down with a hose pipe at the end of the day and give it a proper clean now and again. Did the job.

Thanks, no I absolutely recommend it especially for creating the illusion of space and it looks great but a bit of a bugger to keep clean. When I find the solution I will let you know. Will pressure it off each week and spray down each time we use it too and look at Nanokote....btw where would I get this? And how much?

Ajax powder. Wet the glass then wipe over with a damp cloth.
Rinse thoroughly....glass will sparkle

I nearly suggested wrapping the glass in cling film.

Been using it for ages, on the showers screens as well....brings them up a treat.

In fact sometimes you forget the panels are there. they're that clean.
