How to look after your bath

You might think an enamel bath would withstand any amount of elbow grease, but you’d be wrong – the shiny surface is actually very delicate and you should clean only with either a microfibre cloth or a product that bears the logo of the Vitreous Enamel Association (Cif, for example, carries the mark).

If you scrub too hard, you’ll remove the surface and thereafter it takes on stains. And re-enamelling a bath is costly.
