Use a mild soap solution to clean the seat. Please take care that the seat and hinges are not left damp. Dry off any residual water or cleaning agent with a soft cloth. Avoid contact of the seat and hinges with abrasive, corrosive or chlorine-based cleaners, as these may cause damage or lead to flash rust. Therefore, when cleaning the bowl, make sure that the seat and cover are kept in an upright position until all cleaning agent has been flushed away.
