I have a client that has onyx in his house and hard water in his shower, and we all know what happens there, the lower portions of the shower and the bench especially are way duller than the rest of the floor and shower what’s the best way to clean this up, honing or do you guys have something better he’s not looking for perfection but improvement.

Not an easy project to learn on. Depending upon where you are located and if you are an Interlink Supply customer, I may be able to put you in touch with someone who can guide you through the steps.

I am a interlink customer, I have a fair amount of general cleaning experience with stone but nothing too crazy who would I talk to at interlink?

Curious as to how this all ended? I haven’t came across a Onyx Shower yet. However daily we deal with a lot of stone.

Unheated Onyx would be a sin!

It's a little softer stone and should be treated accordingly. Putting it in a shower is a sin. I'd clean it with light alkaline like diluted GM. Then follow up with stone soap.

Im never a fan of stone showers.. they always look too "busy" plus putting stone in a soapy wet environment is just causing problems down the road.

I like clean looking white tiles with swimming pool grade underwater grout and seamless glass shower doors. Install it once and never look back.

I struggle with stone sometimes. We have crazy hard water and many stone showers. I’ve yet to master this topic.
