Is there a way to clean this fixture lens?

This is the cover for the light in the standing shower. If there is no way to clean this, does anyone know where I can find a replacement? It's an AquaGlass shower.

It can be cleaned but the big problem is the corrosion. The trim ring could be painted or re-chromed if you can't find a replacement.

Use some type of copper, silver, stainless steel cleaner. Then use a clear coat spray on protector. It won't last forever, but it will protect it from moisture. You may need to re-apply in about a year.

I'd sand it down and rattle can primer and paint to make it look nice ..... and keep my eye open for a replacement.

Found nothing like it at Aqua Glass. If it's part of the shower system..... try contacting them.
I couldn't find anyone currently selling a 3 hole replacement lens.

PJmax, thanks for looking up the item for me. Many thanks for all the responses. Any type of brand/solution comes to mind on copper, silver, stainless steel cleaner?

I had the same style and used sandpaper to clean it up. Then I sprayed on white paint. Super easy and it has lasted more than 5 years. There are as many color options as there are spray paint cans in the store. You can even go with a metal look spray.
