Basic Daily Care
Simple attention to your sink’s appearance on a daily basis is often the key to longer life. Begin by cleaning your sink after each use with a soapy sponge or cloth, then rinse thoroughly with warm water and dry with a towel using a dabbing motion. This will eliminate water spots and streaks, which occur if water drops are left standing in the sink. Remember that most soaps, cleaners and detergents contain chlorides, which, if not removed, may cause pitting, and stains. Always be sure that your sink is rinsed thoroughly before drying.
As with any product, preventative maintenance on a regular basis will eliminate many potential problems, which may be compounded over time. This is why weekly cleaning is important. For basic cleaning, use a non-abrasive stainless steel cleaner covering the surface completely, rinse thoroughly with warm water, and then dry with a towel using a dabbing motion. This regular attention to your sink will help avoid stains and rust particle build-up.
Stains and Rust
Stains are most often caused by various minerals contained in your water supply. These mineral deposits settle in the surface of the stainless steel, causing either a rainbow effect, brown, white or gray film on the surface of your sink. Similarly, rust spots may develop in portions of your sink even if metallic objects are not regularly left in the sink. Rust, contrary to popular belief, is not an inherent trait of the stainless steel sink. Rust is caused by a build-up of iron particles from steel wool pads, pots, utensils, water and other sources, which accumulate in the surface and create rust spots. To eliminate both stains and rust spots, use a non-abrasive or mild-abrasive cleaner as indicated in the weekly cleaning section. When applying force or using any abrasive cleaner, always follow the direction of the grain on the surface. Any scrubbing opposite of or against the grain will appear as scratches on the surface of the sink. When finished, rinse thoroughly with warm water and dry with a towel using a dabbing motion.
