Shower Wall Cleaning Problem..

We have black sparkle Shower cladding in our bathroom, wouldn't have been my free choice, but it was the best of the bunch offered to us by landlord, so I chose it..it does look really nice up, but it's a complete bugger to clean. We don't live in a hard water area, but it has developed what look like water marks all over it (mostly in the shower/bath area) that I cannot get off whatever I use..have tried everything..all the conventional cleaners, as well as Viakal and Limelite spray..have tried with a magic sponge too..nothing even remotely shifts them..and the worst part is that you can't tell when you are cleaning them, it's when the steam hits them that the marks show up. They look as if they have never been cleaned, it's that bad. Anyone had this problem? or have any idea how to fix it? It drives me crazy. Thank you.

Hot water and an e cloth then dry with another e cloth? Try using a daily shower spray after use. Try not to use anything abrasive to clean it - with it being dark, any scratches will be more noticeable.

Can you use one of those things that window cleaners use a scraper I use one for my shower screen and use it every time I shower so it doesn't streak

Katcher window vac. Clean and thoroughly dry shower and then use this as many times as convenient. I generally have my shower, spray sides with cleaner (method spray) rinse and then get out, and Hoover the shower with window vac to get rid of water on the glass/tiles. Leaves it completely streak free. At weekends I sometimes buff it up a bit with a blue e cloth. Keeps it looking brand new and sparkling clean.

Thanks ladies, but the marks I am talking about aren't streaks (and I have a kaarcher vac, so I do use that). These are like little round water droplet marks, and they will not come off the showerwall with anything. No cleaner, no limescale stuff will remove them. Tried magic sponges (which remove anything), and they don't shift them either. It looks good when I clean it, it looks like they have gone, but when the steam of a shower or bath hits the wall you see they are all still there.Millions of them. So, I can't even get to worrying about the odd streak because it's covered in these awful marks. As I said we don't live in a hard water area, and don't have limescale anywhere else, so I am wondering if it's a fault with the wall itself. It's very frustrating.

Ok, understood. I've attached a pic of a deep cleaning stone cleaner we had to buy to clean tiles. They had grout etc on them. This might help with a strong brush? It was recommended by a specialist to clean our bathroom tiles. It might shift it, then maybe you might need to look at a sealant once they're clean?

Thank you very much, I shall investigate, and thanks too for understanding what I was trying to say.
