A GUIDE TO USE AND CARE OF STAINLESS STEEL SINKS



“THE DO’S”


  • When it comes to maintenance, the best thing you can do is be consistent in your cleaning. It is preferable to clean a little on a frequent basis than a heavy duty cleaning once in awhile.

  • You should make sure that the sink is always clean and dry when not in use. This is the best method of preventative maintenance. Keep the sink water spot free and shiny by rinsing and towel drying after every use.

  • Keep the single clog free to prevent standing water which can lead to mineral deposit build up.

  • If a mineral build up should occur, use a mixture of vinegar and hot water to remove the deposit.

  • To clean your sink, use a non abrasive cleaning cloth combined with a mild cleaning product.

  • Wipe the sink dry after cleaning to discourage any water spotting.

  • Follow the direction of the grain when cleaning or scrubbing away stains. Scrubbing against the grain will show as a scratch.


“THE DON’TS”


  • Avoid using any abrasive steel wool pads as they will leave an iron residue that will eventually lead to rust and corrosion.

  • Do not leave any steel or cast iron cookware in the sink for a long period of time this may also leave iron particles that will corrode the sink.

  • Do not leave any cleaning materials such as sponges or rags in the sink for an extended period of time. Anything left in the sink can trap moisture which will eventually lead to staining.

  • Avoid any abrasive cleaning materials such as steel wool pads on the polished finish of the sink, this will lead to scratching.
