We are currently in the process of having a bathroom refit - it all looks fabulous! We went for real top of the range fittings which were eye-wateringly expensive. Claw-foot bath with fab chrome stand pipes, beautiful chrome designer radiators/towel rail etc. I just happened to ask the fitter today about whether the chrome will ever go rusty. He then proceeded to say that I cannot use any preparatory cleaners such as Cillit Bang, Flash etc on the taps & other chrome parts because it will take the chrome off! Apparently they are only chrome plated on plastic. I have never heard of anything like this before. We have chrome taps elsewhere in the house and I have happily used Flash to clean them for years and they're fine. Has anyone else been told this? The fittings we chose were top of the range, not cheap rubbish. I can't quite believe that I can only use fairy liquid to clean them, or are they just covering themselves so as not to void any warranties? We've also had a wood effect laminate floor laid which also looks lovely but again, I've been told I cant use normal floor cleaners on it, I can only use the special cleaners from the manufacturer (which are no doubt pricey). Feeling a bit chuffed off really.
