Sprinkle a small amount of Cleanser & Polish on the dampened surface.
Rub gently with a wet cloth or sponge.
Add more product as necessary.
Rinse thoroughly within one minute of application.
Wipe surface dry.
Choose Your Scrubbing Power
For mineral deposits or to remove rust, make a thick paste with Cleanser & Polish and water.
For a stainless steel cleaner, use more water to form a thinner mixture.
Always Test First!
Some ingredients in Cleanser & Polish may etch or dull delicate surfaces.
Before cleaning fiberglass, plastics, anodized aluminum, or brushed metal surfaces—including appliance exteriors—test first.
