STAINLESS STEEL SINKS
When attention and proper maintenance are paid to your stainless steel sink, the life and shine can be kept for much longer. Find out how to properly care for your sink.
After Each Use:
- Remove all objects, ie: pads, grids, clothes, etc, from the sink.
- Clean with light soap solution, rinse, drain all water, and towel dry.
- Regular Maintenance
Side-walls and Bottom of Sink: Remove stains using a cleaning product that contains mild abrasives; always wipe in grain direction; rinse well and towel dry.
For stubborn stains or scratches: Use a fine grit Scotch-Brite (maroon coloured) pad following the direction of sink grain finish. Pay careful attention to the directional change from side walls to the bottom of the sink.
Top Surface and Polished Mirror Finishes: Polish with a soft, dry towel or cloth.
Mineral Deposits: Use a stainless steel cleaning product that contains mild abrasives or a light solution of vinegar and water (1:20 ratio); rinse well and towel dry.
- Avoid using steel wool or other metal or coarse scouring pads to clean the sink.
- Do not stand on, or in the sink for any reason, such as when cleaning windows, reaching for the top shelf, painting, etc.
- Dropping heavy objects into the sink will cause denting and buckling.
- Do not use sharp objects in the sink or use the sink as a cutting surface.
- Leaving water, bleach, cleaners, or chemicals of any type in the sink for a prolonged time will cause erosion, discolouration, or other irreparable damage.
- Never use concentrated bleach in the sink; always dilute with water and rinse the sink thoroughly after use.
- Do not use any acids, drain cleaners, harsh chemicals, paint removers, metal cleaners, etc. in the sink.
We recommend using our NuGranite Sink Cleaner.
- Using a soft dry cloth, scrub the cleaner onto the sink.
- Make small, circular motions on scratches or marks.
- Rinse the area thoroughly with water.
- Dry the sink with a soft, dry cloth and buff until shiny.
- Use mineral oil or baby oil to restore sheen.
