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.
