Hair Spray Damage:

Studies have shown the hairspray residue that settles on marble, stone or granite surfaces, including counters and flooring, will eventually pit the surfaces & cause it to need resealing or even sanding to get it removed.

This is true for both pump and aerosol bottles. It also will embed itself into the glass and chrome on shower doors , bathroom doors , knobs, etc.

You will start seeing small round circles or a rough looking coating on them & the dirt on doors will become impossible to remove without removal of stains or sealant on counters or doors.

To help prevent this from happening, use an old rug on the floors or old towels on the countertops where you spray & leave them there for about 15 minutes until the air settles. For your shower/bathroom doors, drape a towel over the door if possible to cover back spray.

If this isn’t possible, try to use a different area to spray your hair. Do not close your door or it will get on your painted wall.
