Welcome to your comprehensive guide on how to clean your NEOREST Smart Toilet and WASHLET from TOTO. Maintaining the pristine condition of your bathroom fixtures is Globalhome's top priority, so in this guide, we'll walk you through a step-by-step process to ensure that your bathroom not only looks and feels sparkling clean, but also operates at its peak performance.


Whether you're tackling regular upkeep or deep cleaning, this guide will provide you with all the necessary tips and techniques needed for maintenance. So let's dive into the essentials of keeping your TOTO products in excellent condition.

Things to keep in mind:

1. The WASHLET and NEOREST are electronic devices. Please make sure to unplug them prior to cleaning and prevent all traces of water and cleanser from getting inside them, as this could cause malfunctions within the units. 

2. Attachments are well designed so they can be easily removed and cleaned. Excessive force is not recommended.

3. Only use a soft cloth moistened with water when cleaning surfaces. Do not use toilet paper, dry cloths, microfiber, sponges, or brushes as these can cause scratches or the generation of static electricity which could potentially cause malfunctions as well. 

4. If the unit is particularly dirty or soiled, it is recommended to use a soft cloth moistened with diluted neutral cleanser. (Do not use acidic cleansers.) Follow up by wiping with a damp cloth to ensure that no cleanser residue remains on the surface.

CAUTION with use of
Detergent on TOTO items

*When using toilet cleaner, wash it off within 3 minutes and leave the toilet seat and lid open. Wipe off any cleaner that stays on the bowl since malfunctions may occur should the vapor from the chemicals enter the electrical parts. 

*Do not us any water repellant, stain-proofing cleaner or surface coating agent. These would not damage the products, but they may cover the surfaces with a new coating that is not part of the original TOTO design and potentially reduce the effect of the built-in stain prevention technology.

3. Insert power plug.
