Sink Care

SINK CARE

Our Art Stone Stainless Steel sink is made of the highest quality 304 series stainless steel. This elegant, heavy-duty, 18 gauge, non-porous material is hygienic and extremely durable. Our satin-polished finish creates an enduring, easy-to-clean luster. Regardless of whether your sink is made of stainless steel, composite, porcelain, or enamel, the sink will require periodic cleaning to maintain the original finish.

GENERAL CARE AND CLEANING

After every use, rinse thoroughly, then wipe the sink dry with a clean soft cloth. Wiping is key: this will inhibit water spotting and mineral deposits in severe hard water conditions.

Bar Keepers Friend, Flitz, Gordon’s or Miracle Shine, (follow directions on product) are products available in hardware and grocery stores that can be used every day to protect, polish, and clean your sink.

WHAT NOT TO DO

Do not use any abrasive cleaners such as scrub pads or steel wool, as these products will dull and tarnish the finish.

Do not let household cleaning agents, such as bleach; sit in your sink for a long period of time as this may ruin the finish of your sink.

SURFACE RUST AND STAINS

Stainless steel does not rust. Rust stains are a result of iron particles, from outside sources such as water, cookware, steel wool pads, etc. that eventually develop into rust spots.

Gordon’s Miracle Shine, Flitz, or Bar Keepers Friend are all effective at removing “surface” residue such as tarnish, rust, lime deposits, and hard water stains. Follow the directions on the bottle.

SCRATCHES

Scratches are inevitable in any sink material, including stainless steel. Over time, these scratches will become uniform with the sink’s grain. It is recommended that your purchase a customized sink grid to protect the bowl’s bottom prior to using the sink.

In regards to stainless steel, most minor scratches can be softened with a Scotch Brite (soft scour) pad, accompanied with a deep cleansing agent such as Bar Keepers Friend, Comet, etc. Wet pad, apply cleansing agent, and rub vigorously with the grain or finish of the sink. (NOTE: DO NOT JUST RUB IN ONE AREA. YOU MUST RUB ACROSS THE ENTIRE SURFACE), then rinse thoroughly.

For severe scratches, secure a pumice-rubbing compound from a hardware store, and follow the directions on the package. NOTE: Once the sink’s finish has been restored to your satisfaction, Art Stone Granite and Marble recommends the purchase of a customized sink grid to protect the bowl’s bottom.

Warning: Once you have scratched your sink and have tried to soften with the above suggestions, it is possible that one area will look different from the rest of your sink. It is important to rub the entire surface in the direction of the grain. You may not like the end result and we recommend this as a last resource. Art Stone will not be responsible for any damage caused by trying the above actions.
