Cleaning & Maintenance
How do I clean anodised aluminium?
It is recommended to have a cleaning frequency of minimum once a year.
The regular cleaning consists of a simple washing with water added with a neutral soft detergent (cleaning solutions should have a pH in the range between 5 and 8 since the aluminium oxide on the surface will be perfectly stable within that range). Afterwards it should be rinsed with plain water and dried with a soft and absorbing cloth.
To remove a higher degree of soiling, a stiff bristle or nylon brush may be used.
The use of aggressive products such as washing powder, dishwasher detergent, strong acids or and strong alkaline products should be avoided.
Any contact with strongly abrasive agents such as sand, steel wool or, glass paper will carry a strong risk of surface damage.
