Use a mild soap solution to clean the toilet seat. Please take care that the seat and hinges are not left damp. For disinfecting the seat, e.g. ethanol 85% can be used. Make sure that the product is wiped down with a soft rag wrung out in clear water and dried off with a soft, dry cloth immediately after disinfection.
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.
