Care & Maintenance

Everyday cleaning

Rinse your sink thoroughly after each use. Stainless steel looks best if it's cleaned regularly

Dry your sink with a dry, soft, absorbent cloth after each use. This prevents the build up of mineral deposits on the sink surface.

Regular Care

Clean your sink thoroughly once a week. Rub in the direction of the satin finish lines, using a manufacturer recommended cleaner.

Wipe your sink with glass cleaner for added shine.

Use a non-abrasive stainless steel cleaner or metal polish to make existing scratches less noticeable.

Preventing damage

Use a bowl protector or dish basket when washing cutlery, pots and pans, and other metal cooking equipment, to guard against scratching.

Don't leave fruits or juices on the sink. Wipe these up immediately, as they contain citric acids which over time can etch the surface.

Don't leave chlorine/chloride chemicals on the sink, as these could damage the surface.

Don't leave bars of soap, wet sponges or cleaning pads on the sink ledge. Over time, these items will dull and possibly pit the sink finish.

Don't store chemicals underneath your sink (acids, chlorine, bleaches etc.)

Don't allow liquid soap or cleanser to dry on the surface of the sink. Most brands contain chemicals that can affect the lustre of the sink.
