Cleaning Your Sink

Well it’s time to start thinking about keeping our nice new sink looking new for years to come. I have done a good amount of research on this over the years working in the kitchen and bath business for ouch over 30 years (man I’m getting old). Anyway looking at the biggest brand name sink manufacturers they state pretty much the same thing. Below is my list and it should be about the same as what your manufacturer has listed and here is my warning to you that you should always see what your manufacturer has listed on cleaning your sink. If you don’t know who made your sink then below I have it listed by type of sink.

Stainless Steel Sinks:

First and probably the most important thing DO NOT USE STEEL WOOL. Steel wool will leave small particles in the pours of the steel and will rust over time. So if you have ever seen a rusty looking sink you know why. At some point in time someone must have used steel wool.

Everyday cleaning:

Clean with a soft cloth using some mild detergent. Rinse and dry with a towel.

Once a week:

Use some stainless steel cleaner. See list below.
