Cleaning Porcelain Enamel Appliances--wash with detergent and warm water and
rinse. Do not use abrasive pads or scouring powders as these will scratch the glassy surface.
Decorated enamelware--wash in sudsy water, dry with a soft cloth.
Bathroom fixtures can be cleaned in a solution of 1
tablespoon detergent to 1 gallon hot water or with a
foam bathroom cleaner. Avoid using household cleaners which contain abrasives.
Kitchenware--wash in sudsy water. If necessary use a
plastic scouring pad or wooden scraper to remove burnt-on food. Burnt-on food may be loosened by soaking in a solution of 2 teaspoons baking soda and 1 quart water. Avoid abrasive scouring powder or steel wool. For heavy baked-on grease, or spills, occasional use of a fine steel wool pad or scraping with a razor blade is ok; just be very careful not to scratch the enamel. Using abrasives, such as steel wool or abrasive powders tends to permanently scratch the smooth glassy surface, and make it harder to clean thereafter.
Lime deposit in teakettles may be removed by a
solution of vinegar and water. Bring to a boil.
Bathroom fixtures should be disinfected weekly with
a solution of chlorine bleach and water or a spray-on
disinfectant or by using a disinfectant cleaning foam.
Rust stains can be removed by using commercial rust remover or by using a solution of 1 tablespoon oxalic acid crystals (poison), dissolved in 1/2 cup warm water. Apply to stain, allow to stand a few minutes, then rinse well.
