cleaning with generally available non-abrasive liquid or
foam cleaners is all that is needed to maintain the beauty
products. Just using a squeegee on shower walls after each
shower keeps the walls clean. If you'd like, try some of
the newest products on the market, such as Clorox Bathroom
with Teflon® or Tilex Fresh Shower Daily Shower Cleaner®.
Be sure you read and follow the manufacturer application
To remove soap build-up, use Tilex Soap Scum Remover™ Hard
water build-up comes clean with a mild solution of vinegar and
water. Very difficult stains can be treated with most lime and
rust stain removers. Be sure to rinse the cultured marble well
after using any of these cleaning products.
Shower floors can be cleaned with any of the nonabrasive cleaners:
spray and leave on for five minutes, then scrub with a soft-bristled
brush to remove soap residue. Rinse thoroughly.
Polish your vanity top and/or shower walls at regular intervals
with a nonabrasive liquid auto wax or Gel Gloss™. This
will maintain the lustrous finish and make your Mainland Custom
Marble products even easier to clean.
Minor surface scratches may be buffed out using a polishing
compound and a buffer. A minor cigarette burn can be wet sanded
with 600-grit sandpaper and polished with the polishing compound
and an industrial type buffer (minimum 2000 RPM). A professional
repair company should repair a deep scratch or chip. Call

A whirlpool tub used on a regular basis helps prevent buildup
in the water lines. Mineral baths and oils are not recommended.
Use a spa and tub cleaner periodically to prevent residue in
the system. This product is available at spa and pool companies.
Follow the instructions for cleaning whirlpool tubs.
Your whirlpool bathtub has 6 or 8 adjustable jet sockets that
direct the water action toward intended areas. When initially
using the system, we recommend that these sockets be directed
at a downward angle. If the water level is not high enough and
the jets are pointed upward, the system may spray water out of
Extreme care should be taken to make sure that there is water
in the tub and that it is maintained at a proper level before
turning the whirlpool system on. The correct water level is
2" above the highest jets (back jets) and no higher than
1-2" below the variable air control on the sidewall of
the tub. If the whirlpool is turned on without water in the
tub for an extended length of time, motor damage may result.
The large round cover near the bottom of the bathtub sidewall
is the whirlpool suction cover. Foreign objects should be kept
clear of this area. Special care should be taken to ensure
that objects do not plug the suction. If this happens, immediately
turn the whirlpool off and remove the obstruction.
