Kohler recommendations for cleaning its cast iron products


Since I originally wrote this story in 2012, Kohler’s recommendations for products to clean its cast iron products have changed. As such, it’s recommended that you get with the company directly — or with the manufacturer who made your product — for their current recommendations. See the Kohler Care & Cleaning page — which includes links to various cast iron products — here. Note, in my original story Kohler cautioned about various products or DIY solutions that were abrasive or acidic — if you are thinking of using something not on Kohler’s list, contact them for their guidance.

IMPORTANT UPDATE:
If you are the owner of an older porcelain enamel bathtub or sinks, please see my May 2, 2016 story Understanding potential lead hazards in old porcelain enamel bathtubs and sinks and ceramic tile of any age; this article focuses on raising awareness around three  potential sources of lead dust exposure in your home — old porcelain enamel bathtubs and sinks and ceramic tile of any era — and steps you can take to assess and, if required, address them.
