CARE AND CLEANING
When cleaning your toilet, wash it with mild, soapy water, rinse thoroughly with clear water and dry with a soft cloth. Avoid detergents,
disinfectants, or cleaning products in aerosol cans. NEVER use abrasive scouring powders or abrasive pads on your toilet seat. Some
bathroom chemicals and cosmetics may damage the seat's finish.
WARNING: Do not use in-tank cleaners. Products containing chlorine (calcium hypochlorite) can seriously damage fittings in the
tank. This damage can cause leakage and property damage.
American Standard shall not be responsible or liable for any tank fitting damage caused by the use of cleaners containing
chlorine (calcium hypochlorite).
