The Care and Cleaning of Glass Treated with EasyClean10

EasyClean10 Glass Treatment permanently bonds to the substrate and protects it against dirt, grime, soap scum, staining, etching, and discoloration. Similar to a non-stick fry pan, EasyClean10 is optically clear, repels both water & oil based substances, and makes the surface easy to clean. Also, specific cleaning products are no longer required or recommended to extend the life of the coating!

What this means is that you clean less often, with less effort, and the surface won't deteriorate over its life. Furthermore, without the need to purchase specific aftercare products to maintain the coating, EasyClean10 saves you money, up to 90% of cleaning time, and keeps your glass looking new beyond 10 years.


To properly care for EasyClean10 Glass Treatment, rinse regularly with water and squeegee dry after each use. To keep your glass looking new, clean each week using a damp microfiber cloth and a mild detergent to remove any soap scum, dirt, or grime. An example of a mild detergent is Dawn Liquid Dish Soap, the same as you would use to clean your dishes by hand. Other acceptable products include:

  • Windex
  • Lysol 4in1 Bathroom Cleaner
  • Fantastik Orange Action
  • Green Works Natural Glass & Surface Cleaner
  • Clean Shower Daily Shower Cleaner
  • Mr. Clean Magic Eraser when damp

Although these cleaners can be used and will not harm the coating, EasyClean10 is designed to be an easy-clean coating and any cleaning products should be rinsed with clean water immediately after use. No longer are harsh, toxic, or chemical cleaners a requirement for beautifully clean glass!


Never use any rough, gritty, abrasive, highly acidic, or highly basic cleaners as they will damage the EasyClean10 coating on the glass. Examples include Comet (powder), Ajax, cerium oxide, muriatic acid, or lye. These substances will damage the coating, and potentially the glass.


For water with a higher concentration of minerals, lime and calcium may build up on the protective coating that are not easily removed with a mild detergent. A solution of one part white vinegar to five parts water (pure vinegar is recommended for significant buildup) should be sprayed on the glass and allowed to soak for several minutes. This will begin to dissolve the minerals that have built up on the surface, repeat as necessary until the glass is clear. A damp microfiber cloth should then be used to wipe the glass.


In areas with extremely harsh water such as New Orleans (LA) or Perth Australia, EasyClean10 is a great choice. Simply put, if you didn't have the coating your glass may have to be restored or even replaced due to mineral damage, in some cases this can occur in less than 1 year.

Being so robust, the EasyClean10 coating is a great option in such conditions, but needs a little more work due to these specific environmental conditions. We recommended using the vinegar & water solution every week to reduce the build up on the surface, and preventing significant deposits over time. For extreme build up, pour vinegar directly on a new soft sponge, wipe until the minerals are gone, then rinse and dry.
