What kind of cleaner can I use on my faucet featuring the Stainless or Brushed Nickel Finishes?
A damp cloth and mild liquid dishwashing soap may be used, followed by rinsing with water and drying with a soft cloth. Never use cleaners containing abrasives (including abrasive sponges or steel wool), ammonia, bleach or sodium hypochlorite, organic solvents (e.g., alcohols) or other harsh chemicals (e.g., lime scale removers) to clean the finish, as they may damage the finish.
For faucets with clear knob style handles, cleaners should be approved for acrylics and used in accordance with the manufacturers' instructions for use. Cleaners should be rinsed off thoroughly with water immediately after cleaning.

How do I keep the shower base surface clean?
We recommend cleaning your shower base with a non-abrasive and/or non-caustic cleaner to prevent scratching or dulling of the finish.
How do I remove my bathroom sink drain stopper for cleaning?
If a stopper does not lift straight out, it is being held in by the horizontal rod. Behind the drain pipe under the sink is a horizontal rod that is connected to the lift rod by a strap. The horizontal rod is held in place by a nut. Remove the nut and pull the horizontal rod straight away from the pipe about an inch. The stopper should now come free of the drain.
How should I clean or maintain the finish on my faucet?
Always blot dry any water from the faucet surface. Allowing water to evaporate on the surface can lead to build up of mineral deposits. Cleaning with a damp non-abrasive sponge and buffing it dry with a clean soft cloth should help keep your product looking beautiful. To remove water spots, use warm water and a soft, damp cloth. Hard water stains may be removed using a 50/50 solution of white vinegar and water. Make certain that you rinse the surface thoroughly with water afterward. Avoid using the following which can damage your finish:
Avoid industrial cleaners and abrasive cleaners.
Bathroom Cleaner and Lysol Basin Tub, Soft Scrub, and Tile Cleaner.
Avoid products that state on the label that they remove tarnish and rust and those containing hydrofluoric, hydrochloric and/or phosphoric acids and caustic agents.
Avoid harsh abrasives or polishes.
Avoid bleach-based cleaners.
