  • Keep away from eyes. If product gets into eyes rinse thoroughly with water.

Sustainable use

  • Read the label to make sure the product is suitable for the surface you want to clean.

  • Not all bathroom cleaners are good for all surfaces. For example, acidic cleaners may cause damage to marble and old enamel surfaces.

  • Look for specialist products to help you tackle specific cleaning problems in the bathroom. There are specific products for mildew in the shower, rust and limescale deposits, or drains that need freshening.

  • Regular cleaning helps to prevent build-up of dirt and limescale. Use the recommended amount of product and always read the instructions on the label.

  • If there is a sleeve on the detergent bottle, remove it when empty and recycle it separately.
