Abrasive cleaners may scratch and dull the surface of the unit. To clean the unit after installation, use warm water and one of the stronger liquid detergents, such as: Top Job, Liquid Ajax, or Mr. Clean. Use these liquid detergents for normal day-to-day cleaning.

Plaster can be removed with a nylon or polypropylene scrubber. DO NOT USE steel wool, metal scraper, wire brushes, or other metal tools. One of the powder type detergents, such as Spic & Span, may be used on a damp cloth to provide mild abrasive action to remove residue plaster. Minor stains can be removed with household strength ammonia or bleach.

A periodic scrub down with gel gloss or a dishwashing detergent (wear rubber gloves) will usually remove any soap or mineral deposits. Periodic waxing with an automotive polish followed by a light application of liquid wax, such as Johnson’s’ Jubilee will add luster and preserve the finish.

Lighted smoking materials will leave burn marks on fiberglass products. This or other similar damages can often be repaired by rubbing the affected area with an automotive type body polishing compound, such as, Dupont No. 7, followed by an automotive body wax, such as Simoniz. More severe burns require careful sanding with 400 – 600 grit wet carborundum sandpaper and a final rub out with the automotive polishing compound and wax.

Extensive damage can be completely repaired. A professional service repairman in your area should perform such repair work. If local service is not available, or if you need further assistance, contact Clarion Bathware. Repair kits with gelcoat included, may be purchased through Clarion Bathware.
