GENERAL CLEANING INSTRUCTIONS:
For normal everyday cleaning, we suggest the use of a mild soap and water with a soft wash cloth. Do not use scouring pads or abrasive cleaners, as they will dull the surface. Should you wish to use a product not listed below, test on small area in a corner before applying to the entire surface . Always review individual cleaner's instructions. Always rinse thoroughly after cleaning.
Recommended Cleaner: Scrub Free, Protect All – Protectant Other Usable Cleaner: Glass Plus, Dish washing soaps: Dawn, Joy, or Ivory Diluted Pine Sol , Simple Green, Bathroom Duck, Mr. Clean, Diluted Spic & Span, Gel Gloss. There is no need to use abrasive cleaners, as they will dull the gloss over a period of years. In extreme cases where the recommended cleaners do not work, use mild abrasive cleaners such as Soft Scrub or Liquid Comet.
DO NOT USE:
Dow Disinfectant Cleaners, Ammonia or Cleaners containing ammonia, Lysol Disinfectant Cleaner, Fingernail Polish Remover, Acetone, Tough Act, Lest oil, No aerosol cleaners, Harsh Abrasives and/or Bleach-Comet/Ajax, Steel wool/Wire Brushes, Mats with suction cups and adhesives, dyes or inks, Clean Shower *** Use of these chemicals will cause a dull surface and/or an easily recognizable chemical crack. This will void your product warranty. Drain Cleaners
Caution: Liquid drain cleaners are recommended over powders and/or crystal. However, when using liquid drain cleaning agents, bail the standing water out of the bathtub and remove the drain plug. Use a funnel to prevent spills and apply the chemicals directly down the drain. Always make certain that chemicals do not come in contact with the new surface. Use drain cleaners sparingly so that they do not boil out and attack the new surface.
Remove Light Scratch, Abrasions – Bathtub Liners and Acrylic Products
Should you accidentally use an abrasive cleaner or incur a minor scratch in your new acrylic bathtub liner, it may be restored to its original glossy finish. You can do this by using Mirror Glaze professional formula #17 or a liquid acrylic car wax. Should you wish to use any other polishing waxes or compounds, please test in a corner area of the skirt that is not highly visible. When using a wax to clean and restore a liner that has been poorly maintained, wax will generally leave a slick surface. While this is very beneficial and recommended for wall systems, it is not desirable on the textured surface of a bathtub liner bottom. We have found that Mirror Glaze #17 does not appear to create as slick a surface. Mirror Glaze is generally available at a local automotive store.

Textured Bottoms – Special Notes Textured surfaces will attract and hold dirt more readily than will a sheen surface. This is normal. Please understand that excessive or vigorous cleaning of the textured tub bottom may result in the removal of some of the texture, and may diminish the intended effect of the textured bottom. Executive Tub Refinishing shall not be responsible for this, as the effect of cleaning will vary by Buyer. Reglazing Special Instruction
