  1. Wash with mild detergent

    Use a soft cloth or sponge to wash the shower walls using a nonabrasive detergent or foaming bathroom cleaner. Abrasive cleaners remove the high gloss finish from cultured marble.

  2. Rinse the walls

    Use water to rinse the detergent from the walls. Dry the shower stall with a soft towel.

  3. Remove the water spots

    Mix equal amounts of distilled white vinegar and water in a spray bottle. Apply the mixture to any water spots or soap scum on the shower walls. Allow the mixture to sit for 30 minutes to dissolve the spots. Rinse with a wet sponge, and dry the walls again.

  4. Polish the walls

    Restore the shine to cultured marble by applying a fiberglass or counter wax to the walls. After the wax dries to a white haze, polish it by hand to bring back the shine. Apply the wax every six months to maintain the shine.

  5. Prevent future water spots

    Keep a small squeegee in the shower for wiping down the walls after each use. Keeping the walls dry reduces the formation of water spots and soap scum, making it easier to clean cultured marble.
