Hi all

New to the forum, anyone have an idea how to clean and get these white stains off a newly installed black slate shower tray (8 months ago), my wife have stupidly used a product called ViaKal and it might have damaged the surface - but im unsure if this is stain or damaged.

I would be super grateful if anyone have advise or solution on this - i have read about cleaning with vingar + baking soda + water mix or using a slate black sealer follow by enhancer to fix this problem

Thanks

Is that an MX slate effect resin tray? If so good luck im afraid. I replaced a 10 month old white version that had water marks. Water doesn't fully drain off the tray because of the texture and there being very little fall to the drain. Terrible design and replaced with a smooth finish tray.

The Viakal cleaner is acidic so you can’t use anymore acidic cleaners. I would get some alkaline detergent like washing up liquid and a stiff bristled hand brush. Give it a good scrub and hope it’s removes the white stuff. You could possibly also try a liquid polishing paste. Tricky one, hope it works out.
