How do I take care of my stainless steel sink?
Regular care : it is impossible to wear stainless steel out because of frequent cleaning. It is even the best way to ensure its long-lasting corrosion resistance and aesthetics. For regular cleaning, simply use a gentle cloth and soapy water.
How to attenuate scratches : to attenuate the appearance of scratches on stainless steel, gently rub the surface in the direction of the grain with a scouring pad such as the blue “3M non-scratch Brite®”. That will help mix the new scratches with the old ones and give a natural look. To prevent new scratches, we recommend using a grid in your sink, also available at your sink retailer.
I see traces of rust in my sink, is it cleanable ?
Since stainless steel doesn’t oxidize, the traces of rust that might appear on the material are rust deposits on the surface (for example due to cast-iron pans left in the sink).
Gently rub the surface in the direction of the grain with a scouring pad such as the blue “3M non-scratch Brite®” to remove all the stains.
What products should I avoid using on my sink ?
Be careful not to use acid-based or chlorine-based detergents on your kitchen sink: stainless steel is vulnerable to hydrochloric acids, sulfuric acids, and any other strong acids. Therefore, you should avoid using solvent, construction bleach, construction chemical products, etc.
