Care & Maintenance

Now that your new Get A Grip surface has cured, you’ll want to keep it clean. Please follow our guidelines for cleaning and maintaining your new surfaces to ensure the best results.

Use a soft sponge or cloth with the following recommended cleaners:

Any clear mild dish washing liquid
Formula 409®
Glass Plus®
Mr. Clean® Top Job
Lysol® Disinfectant Foam
Pledge® Multi Surface
(Do follow manufacturer instructions)

A soft nylon brush may be used once a month.

DO NOT use abrasive sponge pads, steel wool, wire brushes, or metal scrapers.
DO NOT use high alkaline or strong acid cleaners.
DO NOT allow the surface to come in contact with acidic substances like lemon, lime or other fruit juices, vinegars, etc. This may cause surfaces to discolor.
DO NOT use abrasive cleaners such as Clorox® or Comet®. Prolonged exposure to bleach will cause discoloration.
DO NOT use products that contain the following chemical ingredients: hydrochloric acid, sulfuric acid, hydrofluoric acid, phosphoric acid, sodium hydroxide, pumice (abrasive).

Stains • Rust • Sharp Objects
Destruction of the finish may occur through improper use of acid-bearing compounds like drain openers and tile grout cleaners. All chemicals must be kept away from your Get A Grip finish. Products containing bleach, oils, hair dyes, etc., may stain or mar the finish. Using products that contain lime, lemon or other fruit juices or vinegar can cause surfaces to stain. Never hang garments that could bleed stains on the bathtub. Do not wash animals in the resurfaced tub or sink. Avoid storing objects directly on the surface, especially metal cans, which may form rust stains.

Leaky Faucets
Protect the finish against the eroding action of dripping water, which may cause the finish to crack or mar prematurely.

NO Rubber Bath Mats!
Bathmats containing suction cups will produce a reaction with the finish when subjected to hot water. We recommend Grip-Guard™, our permanent slip resistant surface material instead of a bathmat. Whether or not you choose to use Grip-Guard™ or a bath mat, Get A Grip is not responsible for any slip and fall injury.

Get A Grip’s Care and Maintenance instructions are similar to the instructions most bathtub manufacturers provide for their brand-new fixtures. Check out their web sites, Kohler and American Standard.
