Walk-in baths and walk-in showers need to be main­tained with care, us­ing gen­tle hands. Clean the fix­tures and sur­faces with a soft pad which isn’t too abra­sive. Thank­fully, baths and showers made with mo­bil­ity in mind are of­ten de­signed for easy clean­ing, sometimes in­clud­ing coat­ings that min­imise limescale and marks.
