Caring For Your New Granite Sink

Although granite sinks are extremely durable and are resistant to heat, scratches and stains, they still require regular care and attention to keep them looking new. Read on for the do's and don'ts of caring for your new granite sink.
DO's
  • Use gentle cleaning agents such as a standard kitchen detergent to remove any stains or greasy marks
  • 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. Always dry your sink after cleaning
  • A mild solution of water and vinegar works well to remove mineral deposits that may build up overtime
  • 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
  • Hard water increases the likelihood of lime build up which can show as a white film on your sink so be sure to wipe, rinse and dry after each use
DON'Ts
  • Avoid the use of harsh abrasive cloths and scourers
  • Do not use cleaners that contain chlorine or are strong and abrasive
  • Do not drop sharp/heavy objects into your sink
  • Do not pour paint or grout materials into the sink
