Regular cleaning of your Kohler product is recommended and will help to avoid the build up of dirt and grime that can damage and reduce the life of the product.

To keep your product in good condition, it is recommended that residual water spots should be removed from all surfaces after each use.  This can be achieved by using a soft squeegee or sponge.

For tougher stains or grease build up, a solution of mild soap and hot water should be used with a soft cleaning cloth.
To protect your product, cleaning solutions that contain the following should be avoided:
•    Abrasives 
•    Alcohol 
•    Solvents
•    Bleach
•    Citrus 
•    Harsh chemicals and disinfectants
•    Ammonia or peroxides
•    Acid or alkaline

CAREFULLY READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS OF CLEANERS BEFORE APPLYING TO PRODUCT SURFACES
Many bathroom cleaners may contain chemicals that could adversely affect the finish so should only be used with caution at the consumers risk.

RECOMMENDED CLEANING PROCEDURES 
Acrylic surfaces (baths)
To clean acrylic surfaces use non abrasive soap and water.
It is recommended that the product surface is wiped dry after each use to prevent the build up of soap and scum.

Spa baths
It is recommended that spa bath jet cartridges are regularly removed and cleaned to remove build of hair and grime. Detailed instructions are provided in the home owners and installation instructions of your product.
It is recommended that the product surface is wiped dry after each use to prevent the build up of soap and scum.

Toilets
If you live in a hard water area, you should make certain that the holes in the rim are kept clean to ensure proper pan flushing.
Toilet cleaners should be used at least once a week. Use a long handled brush to clean the rim holes and to clean as far into the trap as possible to prevent mineral deposits from forming.
Most toilet cleaners are not harmful to the vitreous china surface of the toilet pan, however Kohler does not recommend the use of any cleaning products which are submerged in the cistern as the acids contained within the cleaner will prematurely deteriorate gaskets and valve parts.
Please follow any pan cleaner manufacturer’s instructions carefully.

Tapware
Clean the surface with mild soap and warm water, rinse thoroughly with warm water and then wipe dry with a clean soft cloth. The ideal cleaning technique is to always blot dry any water from metal surfaces.
Allowing water to evaporate on metal will form water deposits. It is important to use a dabbing action to dry metal, not an abrasive rubbing action.

Vitreous china basins
To clean vitreous china surfaces use non abrasive soap and water.
It is recommended that the product surface is wiped dry after each use to prevent the build up of soap and scum.

Vanity cupboards
The material used in vanity cabinets is water resistant only, not water proof. 
Care must be taken to clean up all water spillage onto the vanity cabinet surfaces.
To maintain the finish on your vanity cabinet clean with  mild soapy water and dry with a soft cloth.
