Ceramic has many positive properties: it is resistant to heat and cold, abrasion and scratch-resistant, light-fast and hygienic. As a natural raw resource, it is completely safe to use and also extremely durable.
Please observe the following cleaning and care instructions so that you can enjoy your ceramic for as long as possible:
Damage to the surface due to incorrect cleaning!
- Only use cleaners and equipment that are suitable for the application.
- Follow the manufacture’s instructions for the cleaner.
- Never mix cleaners.
A mild commercially available sanitary cleaner is suitable for daily cleaning, limescale stains can be removed using an acidic vinegar or citrus based cleaner (pH value 1-4). The harder the water is, the greater the quantity of cleaner that should be used.
Metallic marks resulting from use (black dots/lines, e.g. due to rubbing of rings) cannot be removed using mild cleaners. Only treat the affected area with Stahlfix (German brand) or equivalent stainless-steel cleaner, car polish or a ceramic hob cleaner.
Regularly clean the coated surface, or clean immediately if soiled. If the cleaning is not carried out regularly enough, soiling, e.g. limescale and soap stains, cosmetic residues, rust and mould, may become visible and subsequently more difficult to remove.
- Clean the surface with a soft clean cleaning cloth and warm water.
- When tackling stubborn dirt, wait a few minutes to allow the cleaner to take effect.
Tip! An advantage of using gels and foaming cleaners is that they also adhere well to sloping surfaces. You can also soak a cloth in the cleaner then place it on the soiled area.
- Rinse with clean warm water to remove all traces of the cleaner.
- Dry the surface.
