How to clean porcelain stoneware

Use warm water and a good quality microfibre cloth, such as CPMAGICCLEAN by Cpsystems. Every now and again, e.g. every 10-20 days depending on the state of the flooring, use neutral detergents diluted with hot water, that are wax-free, and do not deposit glossy films. When the cleaning process in finished always rinse with water, using a second good quality microfibre cloth.

What to use

Wax-free neutral detergent. DO NOT use alcohol, acids, solvents, abrasive detergents, steel wool or scouring pads.


Diluted with plenty of hot water. Rinse thoroughly after washing. For all operations (washing, rinsing and drying), use good quality microfibre cloths.
