Cleaning and Care Instructions
Cultured marble is one of the easiest bathroom surfaces to maintain. There are a number of easy-to-use, readily available cleaning products well-suited for use on your cultured marble, granite or TruStone™
Recommended Cleaning Products:
- Lysol Basin Tub & Tile Cleaner
- Clorox Gel with Bleach
- Dow Bathroom Cleaner
- X-14 Soap Scum Remover
- Clean Shower
- Gel Gloss
If you don’t see your favorite cleaning product on this list, be sure to check the back label to see that the product is safe for use on synthetic marble. Please do not use any abrasive cleaners. Products that contain grit or sand can harm the finish on your new marble and may void your warranty.
To Remove Paint:
To remove paint, permanent marker, nail polish or other difficult stains from the surface, use Denatured Alcohol, Acetone (nail polish remover) or Paint Thinner. If the stain is from hard water or mineral deposits, try using a cleaner for removing iron, calcium, or other such mineral deposits that are in your water supply. Most cleaning chemicals will not damage the gel-coating as long as label instructions are followed.
To ensure that your products look "good as new" for a lifetime, follow these additional tips:
- Avoid leaving objects, such as countertop decor, permanently in place, as doing so may result in minor discoloration.
- Avoid unnecessary scratches by using felt padding on sharp-edged items, for example, ceramic containers.
Most surface scratches can be removed using a liquid cleaning/polishing compound, such as Gel-Gloss. This product is made for use on gel coated surfaces and will take off soap scum, and polish your marble as well as your fixtures. Gel-Gloss also works beautifully on your shower door. It not only eliminates water-spotting and soap scum build-up but it further protects by sealing the glass surface. You can purchase Gel-Gloss from us, or from your local hardware store. If you have specified "Matte finish" on our Cultured Marble Shower, please do not use Gel-Gloss or any other polishing compound as it will restore a glossy finish.
If you have new Cultured Marble shower or tub walls, we also sell Cleret squeegees. These can also be used on tub/shower glass enclosures and mirrors.
If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to give us a call.
