Cleaning Heartland Stove Nickel Trim & Glass Cook Tops

January 24, 2014 · Filed Under Autosol, Flitz Polish · Comment 

A couple of days ago we received an e-mail asking what polish we recommend for Heartland stoves. It is always best to go by what the manufacturer recommends in order not to void your warranty. So from the Heartland website, which you can see for yourself by clicking  here,  is an excerpt  as to what they currently recommend. For cleaning the trim, Heartland says that their nickel plated trim can be cleaned with any non-abrasive metal or chrome polish such as Autosol or Flitz. Autosol is Heartland Stove’s  preferred choice. You can find either Flitz or Autosol polish and get it quickly from our recommended supplier by clicking here. For cleaning your glass top, Heartland says that cooktop cleaning cream (such as Cerama Bryte™) is the best cleaner for glass ceramic cooktops. To use Cerama Bryte™: Shake well and apply a few drops directly to cooktop or damp sponge and rub lightly. Rinse thoroughly and dry with a soft cloth. This can be used on warm or cold ceramic cooktops. Daily use of cooktop cleaning creme will keep your cooktop looking new and easy to clean. A standard packet of this cream is included with each of their ranges. To purchase various sizes of Cerama Bryte, Click Here.

Most recent The Homeowner’s Guide to Care and Maintenance for your ROHL Finish

December 24, 2013 · Filed Under Flitz Polish, Simichrome · Comment 

Quite often, we are asked about polishes we might recommend for different metal finishes for Rohl faucets & sinks and where to buy them.  We have not done a post on this subject for nearly 3 years.  Rohl currently recommends different polishes as of this post date of 12/24/2013.   Below is an excerpt of their recommendations.

POLISHED CHROME — Time-tested Polished Chrome is
the hardiest of all our finishes. Rubbing and polishing will
rejuvenate the finish. Recommended cleaning agents
include Flitz Polish, Gagnon’s SX and Simichrome.
POLISHED NICKEL — Use Gagnon’s SX or Simichrome to
polish and protect this finish. We suggest periodically using
Flitz Wax or Bruno’s Wax to avoid spotting.
INCA BRASS — Use Gagnon’s SX to polish and protect the
finish. We do not recommend the use of any other polish or
wax on this finish.
SATIN NICKEL — This finish is achieved through a
meticulous process that produces an evenly worn look. Use
Gagnon’s SX to polish and protect. Apply Flitz Wax or
Bruno’s Wax to avoid spotting.
TUSCAN BRASS — Unlike any other ROHL finish, Tuscan
Brass is a living finish—it will lighten over time as it is used.
To maintain the original dark patina color longer, we suggest
a light coat of Flitz Wax or Bruno’s Wax be applied regularly.
To apply, pat the wax on and then off again with a soft cloth.
DO NOT RUB. No warranty is offered on the Tuscan Brass
ENGLISH BRONZE — Available exclusively on Perrin &
Rowe® faucets from ROHL, this finish is easily maintained
by periodically using Gagnon’s SX to clean and Flitz Wax to
protect the finish.
OLD IRON— This unique finish is protected by a clear coat
which is easily rejuvenated with Gagnon’s SX polish. We also
suggest using Flitz Wax or Bruno’s Wax regularly to avoid
OUTSIDE USE — ROHL products are suitable for
outside use. However, due to the harsh environment of sun,
wind, rain and snow, we do not offer a
warranty for these types of installations. Polished Chrome is
the best finish for this type of environment
as it is the hardest and hardiest of the finishes. A weekly
shower of fresh water is recommended and a spray
coating of Carnauba wax will help preserve the finish.
If minerals or salt build up on the finish, use a 50/50
solution of vinegar and water and a medium to stiff brush
to knock off the hard deposits. In freezing weather, shut off
the water and remove the cartridges and drain the valve. If
possible, store in a dry enclosed area.
Fireclay sinks from ROHL are constructed with
a durable glaze for years of beautiful
performance. On the occasion that a metal pot
or pan may leave a mark on the surface of the
sink, we recommend Astonish Cleaner available
from your local ROHL dealer. A mild abrasive

cleaner like Bon Ami® is also acceptable.

They are distributors for both Flitz & Simichrome and are well known for their product knowledge, fast dependable shipping and customer service.
