CARE AND MAINTENANCE
Following the application, a chemical reaction with the original surface takes place. The two become fused during the next ninety days. Clean your newly refinished surfaces in the same manner as the originals. The bathtub should be cleaned and rinsed on a regular basis with products such as Lysol Tub & Tile Cleaner, Dow Scrubbing Bubbles, Scratch Guard or Mr. Clean Bathroom Cleaner. Harsh abrasive cleansers are unnecessary and can eventually ruin the finish. DO NOT USE COMET OR KITCHEN CLEANSERS OR AN ABRASIVE SPONGE. However, any chemicals you choose for cleaning must be tested in an inconspicuous area of the bathtub before general use. After the use of all chemicals thoroughly rinse with water. Do not allow anything to strike the surface. Water should not be allowed to drip from faucets. Such undo pressure can cause the finish to crack and wear prematurely. Bathmats can be used but must be removed immediately following use.
Iron and limestone in some water leave behind mineral stains which can be removed by the cautious use of mild acid solution, such as a toilet bowl cleaner. Thoroughly rinse with water. Dulling film from soap buildup may cause the surface to lose its glossy finish. Removal of film may be accomplished by the following method: a. Clean and polish the dulled surface by rubbing briskly with a damp cloth heavily saturated with an automotive polish, and/or a heavy paste made from Bon Ami powder. b. Rinse thoroughly with water, repeat step (a) if necessary.
OPTIONAL NON-SKID SURFACE
The Non-Skid integral safety surface is a slip-resistant aid while showering. Keep in mind that water and soap on any surface will contribute to and will increase the possibility of slipping. The Non-Skid can be cleaned with a laundry detergent, either liquid or granular. An abrasive can be used only on the Non-Skid surface.
