Suggestions for the care & cleaning of your stainless steel sink

Your sink is made from the finest nickel bearing stainless steel. With proper care and maintenance, it will give you a lifetime of service.

For regular routine cleaning, use a non-abrasive cleaner. Liquid dish soap or a mild vinegar solution can be used. This will keep the sink free of residue and of grease from food preparation and dish washing without scratching either the bowl area or the ledge countertop area of the sink.

Since the detergent used for washing dishes may not be thoroughly effective in removing grease residue, the best result can be obtained by direct application of a non-abrasive household cleaner. Cleaning products containing a mild abrasive and recommended by their manufacturer for use on stainless steel sinks are generally satisfactory. Always read the product-use directions on the package before using the product on the sink.

After heavy usage, and whenever a thorough disinfecting cleaning is required, use an abrasive disinfecting cleansing powder. Most of these contain bleach, an effective ingredient for killing germs. They will also help to maintain the sink’s natural shine and lustre by completely removing all traces of any surface contaminant which may remain after regular routine cleaning. Please note, however, that an abrasive cleaner should only be used on the bowl area of the sink, never on the “mirror finish” countertop area of the sink.

Anytime the sink is cleaned a final step is to give it a thorough rinse and then wipe the surface dry.

Your stainless steel sink is easy to keep clean. Simple everyday maintenance, as outlined above, will ensure its long-lasting beauty. The best method of “preventive maintenance” is to ensure that the sink is clean, dry and exposed to room atmosphere when not in use.
