Simple regular cleaning can help ensure that stainless steel maintains its surface look, and it also helps to prevent corrosion and maintain hygienic conditions in the process. Just use warm soapy water or a mild detergent to clean stainless steel, before rinsing and drying using a soft cloth. Avoid the use of strong acids and disinfectants. You can use a specialist stainless steel cleaner, if necessary, to combat a build-up of dirt.
Always follow the instructions on the bottle if opting to use a proprietary cleaner. To prevent the possibility of rust spots appearing, never use steel wool or steel wool soap pads.
Chrome is typically a highly durable material, often providing a brilliant finish to the likes of towel warmers, showers and other fixtures. Obviously not such a good idea with heating appliances like towel racks and radiators, but to maintain the appearance of chrome on other fixtures like showers, we advise that it is regularly cleaned with warm soapy water, before being rinsed and dried using a soft cloth. If using a proprietary chrome cleaner, be sure to carefully follow the instructions on the bottle.
Be aware that chrome is especially susceptible to acid attack, and strong domestic cleaners like disinfectants, hair dyes and denture cleaners can negatively affect the surface too. Black spots, streaks and unremovable pitting can all result from contact with these sort of products, so be sure to avoid contact with harsh chemicals.
Solid wood and veneered MDF are commonly used in the construction of bathroom furniture, shower seats and bath panels, usually incorporating a varnished surface. To avoid damaging the surface, don’t allow water to pool for long, and immediately dry using a soft cloth. A soft damp cloth is all you really need to effectively clean wooden bathroom products.
Avoid the use of scouring powder, scourers and abrasive cleaners on a wooden surface. A proprietary wax polish can be used to preserve the wood’s polished surface.
