What do you recommend for cleaning water spots off the metal surfaces? Soap and water isn't sufficient. As an experiment, I tried a little SoftScrub on a soft cloth on an inconspicuous corner, and it did clean it up nicely. But given the warning against using abrasives I wanted to see what you recommend.
I'm the original poster of this question and I should clarify that I was referring to the stainless finish.
In response to the answer posted above, none of the solutions suggested were effective in removing water spots. I ended up using Soft Scrub on a sponge (sponge only, not an abrasive pad), in very small amounts, slowly increasing the pressure until it started taking off the water spots. I was careful and went slowly and it didn't seem to affect the finish, but I can see why you generally wouldn't recommend people use abrasive products.
That said, Delta needs to go back to the drawing board on this finish. It's unrealistic to expect people to either blot dry their faucet controls after every shower, or accept water spots that can't be removed without damaging the finish. No one wants to be drying off the faucet handle after every shower. It's going to get spots and you need to make it with a finish that's tough enough to handle a cleaner that will remove water spots without sustaining damage.
