Bathroom finish resists dirt, bacteria

American Standard has added a tub and wall enclosure to its line of products that have a permanent finish that the company says inhibits the growth of bacteria and mildew to keep them cleaner longer.

The finish, called EverClean, can be cleaned easily with soap and water, says American Standard, which also uses the finish on whirlpools, air baths and toilets.

The Clean collection has these suggested retail prices: tub, $269; tub wall set, $269; shower base, $129 to $179; and shower wall set, $239 to $299. The products are available at Lowe's.
