Homeowners invest time and money to purchase the best sanitary ware they can afford for their bathroom. However, like all other products which are used regularly, sanitary ware products will also become dirty and dusty after some time. Since dirty sanitary ware is not hygienic and will adversely affect the appearance of the bathroom, some tips for maintenance of bathroom sanitary ware are provided below.


Wipe and Dust Off Your Sanitary Ware Regularly


It is advisable to dust the sanitary ware regularly to remove the dust and dry dirt. If there is any other dirt remaining, a wet cloth can be used to remove this dirt or grime from the sanitary ware. This cleaning procedure is recommended at least once a week. You may start from using this step-by-step guide to clean your shower head.


Use Metal Polish To Make Them Shiny Again

If the metallic fixture has lost its shine, the metal polish can be applied to restore the sheen. Depending on the metal used, a suitable metal polish should be applied to the sanitary fixture like the Rubine SQ 42M Countertop Square Basin using a soft cloth. Follow the instructions provided for using the polish. The excess polish should be removed after polishing is complete.

Protect Your Sanitary Ware With Wax or Sealant 

Sanitary ware which is more likely to become dirty or stained can be protected using a sealant or wax. This protective layer will ensure that the harmful chemicals and dirt do not reach the top layer of the sanitary ware for some time and it remains clean and shiny. The manufacturer’s instructions for using the wax or sealant should be used. This is one of the reasons why you should buy sanitary ware from reputable brands. They are guaranteed to be of high-quality, making them more long-lasting compared to other products in the market. 


Use A Toothbrush To Clean Hard To Reach Parts 


Some areas of the sanitary ware like the handle or spout cannot be easily reached for cleaning using a cloth, so in these cases, a toothbrush should be used for cleaning these areas. The soft toothbrush should be dipped in the cleaning solution, and used for scrubbing the dirty area.


Apply Dish Soap and Water For More Thorough Cleaning

For a more thorough cleaning of the bathroom fixtures, a solution of dish soap in water can be used. A cleaning cloth or sponge can be dipped in the solution and used to remove the dirt which remained after wiping or dusting. The sponge should be non-abrasive to avoid damage. Warm water can then be used to wipe the fixture and remove the soap solution or dirt than remains. To know which products are safe to use and how to use them, you may refer to the ways to the ultimate guide to cleaning your sanitary ware products


Eliminate Stains Using Vinegar and Water


If the sanitary ware has mineral deposits, soap scum, or stains which are difficult to remove, it is advisable to use a mixture of vinegar and water. For a standard size bathroom, one cup of water should be mixed with an equal quantity of vinegar. A soft cloth or sponge can be dipped in the mixture and applied to the stains or mineral deposits. Since vinegar is acidic, it will dissolve the mineral deposits, soap, and stains in most cases. For more persistent stains, a cloth dipped in the vinegar solution should be used to cover the stain for at least 15 minutes so that it can act on the stain.

Prevent Scratches By Using A Soft Cloth 


Some sanitary ware like the Rubine QTRO 60-BK Countertop Rectangular Wash Basin has a coating which is made from a soft material, which can easily get scratched if a hard cloth or sponge is used. The scratches adversely affect the appearance of the sanitary ware, making it look shabby, so a soft cloth should be used for wiping the sanitary ware.
