Care & Cleaning

For best results, keep the following in mind when caring for your KOHLER product:

Always test your cleaning solution on an inconspicuous area before applying to the entire surface.

  • Wipe surfaces clean and rinse completely with water immediately after applying cleaner.

  • Rinse and dry any overspray that lands on nearby surfaces. Do not allow cleaners to soak.

  • Use a soft, dampened sponge or cloth. Never use an abrasive material such as a brush or scouring pad to clean surfaces.

Special Surfaces

KOHLER® Artist Editions

Do not use bristle brushes, abrasive sponges or abrasive cleaners. They will scratch decorated surfaces. Gold and platinum used on decorative products are like fine jewelry. Use only warm water to clean. Dry with a soft cloth. Do not let cleaners soak on surfaces. Rinse and wipe fixtures after use and cleaning to prevent soap buildup.

Spun Glass Surfaces

Do not use bristle brushes, abrasive sponges or abrasive cleaners. They will scratch some glass surfaces. Do not let cleaners soak on surfaces. Rinse and wipe fixtures after cleaning to prevent soap buildup.

Care Tip

To avoid lime buildup in hard water areas, make a point to wipe the product dry after each use, just as you would towel dry your hands with a soft cloth. To prevent scratching while cleaning, save old T-shirts or flannel nightgowns for great cleaning cloths.

Cleaning instructions listed pertain only to their corresponding material, and are not intended for faucet cleaning.

Success with cleaners and procedures is dependent upon such factors as the hardness and temperature of the water, using exact measurements of ingredients, changes in cleaning formulas and the condition of the product being cleaned. Since there are variations within these factors, Kohler cannot guarantee the effectiveness of the formulas mentioned.

Special Considerations

Flushing the BodySpa System

Flush your BodySpa system twice a month or more, depending upon usage.

1. Fill the footbath with hot water to a level 2" above the suction cover.
2. Add 2 teaspoons of a low-foaming, powder automatic dishwasher detergent and 4 ounces of household bleach (5% to 6% sodium hypochlorite) to the water.
3. Run the BodySpa jets and waterfall for 5 to 10 minutes each. Then shut off the BodySpa and drain the water.
4. Fill the footbath with cold water to a level 2" above the suction cover, and run the BodySpa jets and waterfall for another 5 to 10 minutes each. Drain the footbath and wipe it dry with a soft cloth.

Flushing a Whirlpool System

Flush your whirlpool system twice a month or more, depending upon usage.

1. Adjust the jets fully clockwise so there is no air induction.
2. Fill the bath with warm water to a level 2" above the highest jets, or leave water in the bath after using.
3. Add 2 teaspoons of a low-foaming, powder automatic dishwasher detergent and 20 ounces of household bleach (5% to 6% sodium hypochlorite) to the water.
4. Run the whirlpool for 5 to 10 minutes. Then shut off the whirlpool and drain the water.
5. If desired, rinse bath surfaces with water.
6. Clean KOHLER® cast iron and acrylic bath surfaces as needed with recommended cleaners.
