How do I clean and maintain my BC Designs Bath?

High Gloss Finish

  • To preserve the polished surface, clean your bath with a soft cloth and warm soapy water.
  • As a weekly cleaner we recommend any suitable sanitary ware liquid cleaner. Rinse the surface clean immediately afterwards. Do not allow any liquid cleaner to stand for extended periods as this may stain the bath depending on the type of cleaning product.
  • Do not use powders, pastes, crème cleaners, thinners or dry cleaning fluids.
  • Stubborn marks and fine scratches may be removed using a car burnishing compound and soft cloth.
  • More serious marks may also be removable. Contact BC Designs for advice at sales@bcdesigns.co.uk

Damage Prevention

  • Always run hot and cold water simultaneously into your bath or basin. Tap settings should never exceed an absolute maximum temperature of 60°C.
  • Deliver water (mixed hot and cold) to the lowest point of the bath which is at the waste area.
  • Avoid contact with strong chemicals and solvents (stain removers, nail varnish removers, etc)
  • Wipe away any chemical spillages i.e. Hair dye, as soon as possible to avoid potential staining.
  • When coloured essential oils are used, first test that the colour will not stain your bath. If it does, a burnishing compound will remove it.

Painted Baths

We currently are only able to paint baths will a roll top, such as our Boat Bath or Excelsior Bath. We have a painting service or can advise you how to paint the bath on site.
