All cultured marble, onyx and granite products have a gel coat finish that provides a non-porous, stain resistant surface.
Proper care will ensure lasting beauty, elegance and function. Normal cleaning requires soap or a mild detergent and water. Dow and Lysol bathroom cleaners work well. Other products may be used, but be sure to read the label to ensure the product is safe to use.
Do not use scouring or abrasive cleaners. Repeated use will dull the gel coat finish.
Due to their non-porous nature, cultured marble products resist most stains. However, extended exposure to harsh chemicals such as ammonia or bleach should be avoided because they may cause discoloration. Products such as polish remover, paint remover, etc. may cause permanent damage.
Occasional treatment with a high quality liquid or paste wax will renew the finish and prevent soap scum buildup. Avoid colored waxes. Gel Gloss cleaner and polish is designed for cultured marble products and is available at Kitchen & Bath Design Center, along with your local hardware and building supply stores.
Avoid extended or frequent exposure to extremely high temperature water. Household hot water heaters should be set in the normal range of 120 degrees F. A separate cast iron or porcelain bowl will allow for a bowl change if it should become damaged.
