Grohe makes high-end kitchen and bathroom faucets for commercial and residential clients. Grohe faucets are always made of stainless metals that are easy to clean. Daily wear and tear will get your faucets dirty; they should be cleaned regularly. The biggest problem is not always the faucets themselves, but the rest of the hardware, including the drain that can become clogged, especially in bathrooms. In addition to regular maintenance, you can reach a high level of shine with the proper cleaning techniques, making your faucets an appealing part of your kitchen or bathrooms.
Things You'll Need
- Soft cloth
- Soft scrub brush
- Bathroom cleaner (see tips)
Wet the soft cloth with cleaner and wipe all surfaces of debris. Remove all of the loose dirt before you start really scrubbing.
Use the soft scrub brush to work the tougher stains. Use as much pressure as you need, because the soft scrub brush will not scratch or otherwise damage the metal.
Spray the faucet with cleaner and wipe it again with the soft rag. This should begin to give a slight polish to your faucets, because all the debris and grime should be gone. If there is still grime to be removed, go back to Step 1 and repeat.
Apply the polish to a clean rag and wipe the remaining surfaces using smooth circular motions. Use only a small amount of polish and wipe it all away as you continue your smooth circles.
Tips & Warnings
- Choosing the best bathroom and kitchen cleaner is mostly a matter of choice, as long as you keep a few things in mind. Do not choose chemicals that are poisonous or dangerous to the environment. These damage our water supplies when they are flushed or go down the drain. Choose a non-abrasive cleaner with a scent that you enjoy, as long as it contains at least 1 percent lye as an active ingredient to break down debris. You may also want to choose a chemical that has antibacterial properties to kills germs, as this will make your surfaces and faucet that much cleaner.
- Do not use a wire brush or abrasive chemicals such as Comet or acids. While these may clean the surface very well, it is also likely they will damage the surface of the faucet, resulting in pitting and scratches.
