The second type is represented by polystyrene cabins. Preserve the original appearance of the product is difficult, because after a while the surfaces begin to grow turbid. In addition, when the water dries, a raid is formed, which is difficult to get rid of. For this reason, it is best to use the Tilex-Fresh Shower. It can be used immediately after the first use of the shower.
