Stainless Steel Care
The attractive and hygienic properties of stainless steel unfortunately cannot be regarded as maintenance free.
All stainless steel scratches, especially in the bowls of the sinks because that’s where most of the work is done.
The stainless steel in the sinks has been polished for the consumer to either have a shiny or a matte finish, so it makes it easier to see scratches.
This does not mean that your sink scratches easy, however with quality stainless steel, these scratches caused by usage will develop until a uniform finish over time.
To reduce the amount of scratching and enhance the life and appearance of your sink we recommend the following:
Rinse thoroughly after each use ,rubbing the area with a soft sponge.
Towel dry after each use to prevent mineral deposits in the water from building up on the surface of the sink.
Food preparation - Food and ingredients such as raw meat (especially salted), undiluted fruit juices (especially
lemon) and spicy sausages may cause slight staining.
Don’t allow liquid soap or cleanser to dry on the surface of the sink as most cleaning agents contain chemicals that can affect the high lustre of the sink.
Don’t leave solutions of chlorine bleach or chlorides found in many dishwashers, standing in your sink for long periods of time, as this could damage the surface of the sink.
Don’t use a steel wool pad to clean your sink. If a more abrasive product is needed, use a mild liquid cleanser being sure not to rub too hard as this may cause scratching in the direction you are rubbing. Steel wood pads will leave small particles of steel embedded in the surface of the sink that will rust and give the appearance that the sink itself is rusting
If you use a rubber mat or basin protector while washing dishes ,remember to remove them after each use. Bacteria can grow under these protectors if allowed to remain in the basin.
Don’t leave bars of soap ,wet sponges or cleaning pads on the sink. These items over time will dull and possibly pit the surface of the finish.
Don’t leave fruits or juices on the sink; wipe them up immediately as they contain citric acids which over time can etch the surface.
Avoid contact of the stainless steel with any harmful liquids...These include acids and chemicals such as pool chlorine, battery acid, muriatic acid, solvents, glues and paint removers.
