We will show you the best way to avoid sources of bacteria, dirt residues and to take care of your sink so that it preserves the beauty of the first day.
Stainless Steel Sinks
- Stainless steel sinks are very sensitive to lime, so you need to clean them with soap and water or water and vinegar very often, if possible every day.
- To avoid limescale: don’t forget to dry the sink with a soft cloth or microfiber.
- To remove limescale: warm white vinegar is perfect. Let it act for 20 minutes and rinse it with water.
- Forget about: bleach, it is very corrosive and could damage your sink.
- Do not use abrasive cleaning products that can scratch the sink.
- The main feature of granite sinks is that they are very easy to clean.
- Some of them have an integrated antibacterial treatment that prevents bacteria from proliferating.
- Daily cleaning is always advisable. The abrasive side of the scouring pad can be used and cleaned with a simple scrubbing cream or black soap.
- For dangerous stains: use a damp scouring pad impregnated with a white cleaning stone.
- It is recommended not to use ceramic knives in a granite sink.
- Ceramic sinks are resistant to scratches, shocks and very low or high temperatures, which makes this sink one of the best options for the kitchen.
- Daily maintenance is very simple since a scouring pad, water and soap are enough.
- Faced with the most resistant stains: white vinegar or white stone will be effective.
- Forget: anti-scale or sodium-based, hydrochloric, citric, formic or hydrofluoric products (anti-oxide products, for example).
