How do you clean your heated towel rail? Mine gets dusty and splattered with water drops which leave marks as they dry. But if I use a cleaning product on it, it smells funny when it heats up.

Damp cloth, no product, when it's on being careful not to burn yourself.

E-Cloth. Hot water. Cold towel rail.

do you have hard water?

Yes, both chromed and hard water.

Two cloths, one wet one dry. Wipe with wet one and dry off straight away - gleaming....until next time someone uses towel <<sobs>>

it will have limescale marks from water. If you clean it when cold, and wipe off with a damp cloth, you have a chance of polishing off the water before it dries.

you're not really on a winner here.

Thanks! Think I'll reconcile myself to it never looking spotless!

I use glass cleaner and an old bit of towel to clean our, when i get around to it. Never noticed a smell afterwards.

I use glass cleaner too. Or a babywipe. Then go over it with a soft dry cloth.

Hot damp cloth, then wipe with a dry cloth. Avoid all cleaning products unless you need to remove limescale that's already marked it.

Bathroom cleaner sprayed onto wet cloth?

Spent half and hour doing mine. Switch it off. Vacuume with a soft brush first. Then clean each individual bar with baby wipes. And dry thoroughly. Do horizontal first and vertical last. (tip from hotel chambermaid)
