Cleaning Hard Surfaces: Ceramic




Routine Care

Special Instructions

Glass Cooktops Using a nonabrasive sponge, paper towel, or clean cloth, apply a cleaner formulated for ceramic glass or a paste of baking soda and water. Rinse and dry thoroughly.

Wait until cooktop has cooled before cleaning.
Do not use abrasive cleansers.
Do not use cleaners containing ammonia or bleach as they may discolor the surface.
Use only clean cloths/sponges. Soiled cloths may leave a film and cause discoloration.
  Tiles Bathtubs
Use a nonabrasive, all-purpose cleaner (diluted or full strength); tub/tile/sink cleaner; or liquid cleanser. Rinse thoroughly with clean water and buff tiles with a dry cloth to prevent water spots. The easiest way to keep tiled shower walls clean is to wipe them down with a towel after each use. This will keep soap scum and hard water deposits from accumulating.

Avoid using powdered abrasive cleansers that could scratch the surface.

Use a soft bristle brush to clean grout.

A solution of liquid household bleach (sodium hypochlorite)(3/4 cup of bleach to 1 gallon water), or a mildew stain remover applied carefully with a brush helps clean stained or mildewed grout. Rinse thoroughly.
