Care Maintenance

BaneraBath bath-ware is crafted to be non-porous, and will prohibit liquids and chemicals being absorbed. The result is an easy care and hygienic bathroom material. Although BaneraBath surfaces are tough and durable, they are not indestructible. They will require regular maintenance to keep the product’s surfaces at their best.
As with most things in life, prevention is better than cure, so please read the recommendations below to ensure that you enjoy years of service from your investment in BaneraBath.

1. Day-to-day
After use, remove any residue from soap, shaving, or brackish water by rinsing and a quick wipe over with a damp sponge or cloth.

2. Regular Bathroom Cleaning
When conducting your regular bathroom cleaning, simply wipe over the surface with diluted dishwashing liquid. An ammonia-based cleaner such as Spray-and-WipeTM* can also be used. Rinse and wipe over using a clean damp sponge.
To remove build-up of lime, hard water scale or soap residue, use a standard household lime remover or diluted white vinegar, rinse well.

3. Spills
If a spill of dye, nail polish, harsh household chemicals or the like occurs, in most cases staining can be prevented
with minimal effort. Immediately rinse using appropriate safety measures, and wipe over with warm soapy water.
Clean the entire surface using a mix of 5% Mild Cream Cleanser to 95% diluted dishwashing liquid applied using a damp sponge. To maintain uniformity, do not apply too much pressure nor rub in the same area for a prolonged time. Rinse well and wipe clean.
If the spill has not been totally removed, proceed to Paragraph 4. “Stubborn Stains, Scuffs and Cigarette Burns” for instruction.


4. Stubborn Stains, Light Scuffs & Cigarette Burns
Matte Surfaces: Apply a Mild Cream Cleanser to the entire surface, using a damp fine grey Scotch-Brite** pad rub in a wide circular motion. Be sure not to apply too much pressure nor rub in the same area for a prolonged time.
Before rinsing, clean the entire surface using a very wet sponge in a wide circular motion. Rinse well and clean. A matte / sheen luster will result.
Gloss Surfaces: Lightly sand the entire surface with 1200 grit wet sand paper using a foam or similar soft sanding block. Finish with Turtle Wax Brand “Scratch and Swirl Remover” using the foam pad provided. Apply according to manufacturer’s instructions.

5. Prevention
Do not use abrasive cleaners, steel wool, metal implements or objects with sharp edges on the surface of your BaneraBath bathroom-ware product.
Excessive heat, naked flames, ultraviolet radiation or harsh chemicals may also cause damage to your BaneraBath surface.
In most cases, BaneraBath will withstand even this abuse by following the rejuvenation process out outlined in item 4. Stubborn Stains, Light Scuffs and Cigarette Burns.
