Bath Fitters is a company that installs acrylic tubs etc and have a large list if cleaners that they say will not hurt their product-might be interesting to have a look.

I clean with windex unless there are a lot of mineral deposits. If there are, I use 1/2 cup vinegar to 4 cups water. Rinse well.
Then I put Gel Coat on the walls and the shine comes back. Be careful to not use it on the floor or it will be very slippery.

Just don't put it on the shower pan. You don't want wax there.

don't laugh - dryer sheets.
Wipe while wet, rinse and squeegee once a week.

The floor shine is going away because of a build up of stuff - or because abrasive cleaners have been used. Plain white vinegar might be useful if the build up is due to calcium scale.

We use a squeegee thingy after every shower to reduce the amount of standing water and hence spotting

Two years ago for the fiberglass walls I used car polish with my random orbital polisher and then a coat of car wax. For the glass panels I used dry 0000 steel wool and then three coats of RainX, then when it dried I wiped it down with a clean cotton rag. We also squeegee after every shower.

Still looks fine but I'll probably do it again this spring.

Cleaning shower wall

After the shower is cleaned to your satisfaction, use a product named "Clean Shower". We have used it for the last 15 or so years and it keeps thing nice and tidy.
