For the first time in over 2 weeks I am able to reply. Maybe they got our messages. I went to their Facebook site and left a message there. Huh! I now totally dislike DAP products!!!

My fussy customer went out and bought some stuff for me to clean his shower doors with. I dont recall thee name. It was a thick paste that you put on the glass, let it dry and then scrub it off. VERY labor intensive. Especially since it wasted almost a half hour of my time. It was hard to remove, very hard to remove. My arms were tired afterwards. But it did work. He doesnt use a squeegee, but then again a man who doesnt take out his trash wouldnt bother doing stuff like that! LOL!

Someone must've listened as the pop-ups I always saw are now gone also.

As far as that being labor intensive, I would take a wild guess and say that it will only for the 1st time. (?) The worst part, I would think, would be the waiting so try to put it on as soon as you get there. I would also think that after it's dried and time to wipe, get the doors completely wet before trying to "scrape" it off. I use the green scrungies on the glass shower doors with no problems at all but if you're afraid they might scratch the surface, use the cheaper 1's that don't scratch anything. They just might, in this ONE instance, take the grout like cleaner off the door easier than Magic Erasers.

I have my glass doors pretty much mastered but would be very interested in knowing the name of the product he bought!! Always nice to hear a somewhat thumbs up review! Also interested in hearing what you're favorite SS cleaner is. I use Weiman's but it leaves a film and I have to wipe the appliances down twice. I used to love Rubbermaid but they changed the cap from white to black (or reverse) and what they really did with no announcement was change the formula. (By change, what I believe happened was added water which not all SS likes.) I wrote Rubbermaid (this was years ago) but I apparently didn't contact the correct Rubbermaid. (?) Ohhh Kaaaay! Anyway, without buying a full bottle of 10 different cleaners without pre-sampling, I'd like to get more reviews of what people like. (Commercial cleaners only~nothing green.) Thx!

I wont be there until next week, so remind me later to get the name of it.
I think it will always be labor intensive. The stuff comes in a can along with a scrubber tool. Because the paste is thick, it is almost impossible to put a thin coat on. Removing it is just hard to do especially for a 68 year old with arthritis in her hands!!! LOL!

I have a cleaning tip for everyone. Go to Dollar Tree or maybe Dollar General. They often have packs of 6 or 7 foam sponges with a scrubber side. They are made for washing dishes and do great at that. But they do perfectly cleaning bathrooms. You all know how much dust is in bathrooms - probably from paper products. That plus hair is often the bane of house cleaners. Those foam sponges grab that stuff like crazy! Dampen it and watc h what you get back after wiping down bathroom surfaces. I have tried other sponges and NONE work as well as these. The come in either all yellow or mixed colors of yellow, pink and blue. I like the yellow ones because its easier for me to see what the sponge grabbed.

They also work well in removing pet fur from furniture, and are helpful in the kitchen for cleaning too. I always bring at least 3 of these into every house. If the home has pets I bring 3. When you use them to remove fur/hair, use them dry. I have one customer who has a large black cat with long fur. She sheds like crazy! Every time I am there, I de-fur her bedroom lampshades with those sponges and usually also wipe down her bedspread. Her cats sleep a lot and always on her bed.

I dont know why these sponges work better. All I know is they just do!

For cleaning stainless steel use bar keepers or bon ami.Won't scratch,removes stains. Very good stuff. You can follow up after you've dried the sink really well with a stainless steel shiner.

You cleaning Pros: where on earth do you find the TIME to do this job correctly (so it actually WORKS!) I sure do not. My customers expect me to get their entire houses clean in usually 4 hours, sometimes five. Sometimes less! If I spend even 45 minutes on this, I would not be able to get the rest of the house clean! Please, lets try to be realistic here.

I dont know about you but I always try to work as efficiently as possible. The first couple times I clean a home, I am always trying to figure out how to do it the most efficiently as possible. I am quite good at this now, I think. The man who owns the home I referred to is very unrealistic and hasnt a CLUE that a lot of what I do for him is WAY out of normal. Cleaning kitty litter boxes is not a normal cleaning thing. But I do it, because he sure doesnt and I feel sorry for his cats (FOUR of them!) Plus the guy is a total slob. Yet I somehow manage to get his entire home cleaned well in 4 hours. I just do NOT have that much time to fiddle with his daggone glass shower doors! And I told him just that last time I was there. I let him have it, to be honest. LOL!

I recently recommended this product in a another post about grout cleaning. Which is what the product is originally intended for. Before using any harsh chemicals such as this should be sure you're taking precautions because it can corrode stainless and possibly stain fabric I'm not sure about that. But when it comes to hard water on glass shower doors I find this product put onto a magic eraser scrubbed into the glass and then rinsed off and dried with a microfiber leaves it perfectly clear and it will take about 3 to 4 weeks to get really bad again.

Hope this is helpful and happy cleaning to you all.

What is (sort of ) working for me now is to use a non abrasive foam sponge with a good all purpose cleaner first and after that, apply a glass cleaner?
