Keep the acids away from your bath

Keep the acids away from your bath

Free standing cast iron baths might be a classical design, but they’ve definitely made an impression more recently. Stylish and easy to clean, everyone seems to be drawn towards these tubs for one reason or another. Possessing unmatched quality and a price tag that’s more than equitable, they are worth the investment.

Your cast iron bath’s lining will be overlaid with a substance known as vitreous enamel. This possesses many of the characteristics typically found in glass. What this means is it will be easy to clean and rather resilient. However, when abrasive materials are introduced, even glass can be scraped. What we are going to do here is talk about how you can clean your tub without accidentally damaging it.

As you’ve probably guessed by now, abrasive cleaners like steel wool and scouring powders are a no go due to their harsh nature. As time goes on, enamel can accumulate hard water deposits, grime, and dirt, with each one being capable of exacerbating the situation. It would be in your best interest to avoid acids on the exterior too. Using bathroom products one would utilise for acrylic models and liquids like vinegar can and will wear your enamel away. Not only does this result in discolouration, but the degraded lining isn’t exactly nice to touch.

The ideal practice with these baths would be to clean and dry them down once you’ve bathed. Taking on soap proliferation using a wet cloth whilst the tub is still damp prevents it from becoming a bother. Additionally, taking the time to dry your bath off afterwards shall stop mildew and mould related problems in the long-term.
