Care and Cleaning of Chrome and Special Finishes:
DO NOT use abrasive or chemical cleaners to clean flushometers as they may dull the luster and attack the chrome or special decorative finishes. Use ONLY mild soap and water, then wipe dry with clean cloth or towel. While cleaning the bathroom tile, the flushometer should be protected from any splattering of cleaner. Acids and cleaning fluids can discolor or remove the chrome plating.
