The Vitreous Enamel Association (VEA) urges users of cleaning products to check its list of tested products online because potential trouble lies in store for users of some cleaning products on enamel. On a ‘mystery shopping’ exercise the VEA purchased twenty cleaning products, which had not been submitted to the VEA for independent testing. In tests on kitchen and bathroom enamel with these twenty products, none reached the VEA top ‘AA’ standard. On ovens only six reached an ‘A’, four a ‘B’ and four a ‘C’. On hobs there were ten at ‘A’, and three on ‘B’. Across a total of eight cleaning products tested on bathroom enamel, most scored ‘A’, three were ‘B’ and three were ‘C’. Vitreous enamel will last a lifetime and longer especially if cleaned with suitable products. However it can be damaged and to avoid using the wrong cleaning product on vitreous enamel, the VEA invites all users to check with the freely available list of Approved Enamel Cleaners on the VEA website.
