To ensure the beauty and longevity of your BCI Acrylic bathroom systems, the following hassle-free cleaning instructions have been compiled for your convenience.
General Cleaning Instructions
For routine cleaning, simply wipe the surface of your bath, shower, and wall surround with a soft wash cloth and warm water. We recommend using a mild soap. Use of abrasive cleaners and scouring pads will dull the surface over time. Approved cleaners are listed below. If you desire to use a different product, always review the specific cleanser’s instructions, test on a small area beforehand, and be sure to rinse thoroughly after use.
- Dawn dish soap & water
- Formula 409
- Vinegar and water if needed to soften mineral deposits
- Use 1/2 cup Clorox Bleach per gallon of water as a disinfectant. Rinse well.
DO NOT USE:
Original Clean Shower, Clean Shower for Plastic Showers & Glass, Soft Scrub, Dow disinfectant cleaner, Dow Scrubbing Bubbles, Scrub Free, Lysol disinfectant cleaner, acetone, Lestoil, ammonia, fingernail polish remover, aerosol cleaners, or scouring pads.
Use of any cleaners or chemicals listed under “Do Not Use” will cause a dull surface and/or an easily recognizable chemical crack. This will void your product warranty. There is no need to use abrasive cleaners which can also dull the gloss over a period of years. In extreme cases where the recommended cleaners do not work, use a Chore Boy or 3M Sponge pad. Make sure you use only the ones recommended for Teflon or non-stick surfaces.
Drain Cleaner 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 acrylic surface. Use drain cleaners sparingly, so that they do not boil out and damage the acrylic surface.
