How to care for your new granite sink...

July 14, 2016

Although granite sinks are extremely durable, heat, scratch and stain resistant, to keep them looking great they still require regular care and attention. Read on for the do's and don'ts of caring for your new granite sink:

 

DO's
- Use gentle cleansing agents such as a standard detergent.
- A microfibre cloth will help to pick up stains and gently clear away food debris.
- Keep the sink dry when you are not using it, this will prevent water and lime deposits   as well as food debris drying and becoming harder to remove.
- A mild solution of water and vinegar works well to remove mineral deposits that may build up.
- Occasional use of a granite specific cleansing agent provides a heavy duty clean. 
- Mineral oil applied with a damp cloth will restore lustre.
- For tough marks, buff gently using the rough side of a kitchen sponge. 

 
DON'Ts
- Avoid the use of harsh abrasive cloths. 
- Do not use cleaners that contain chlorine or are strong and abrasive.
- Do not drop sharp objects into your sink. 
- Do not pour paint or grout materials into the sink. 
- Hard water increases the likelihood of lime build up which can show as a white film on your sink. Make sure to wipe, rinse and dry after each use.
