Quick Tips For Your Sink

      Comments Off on Quick Tips For Your Sink

Keep your sink dry! Rinse the sink with clean water and dry it with a soft cloth when not in use. This prevents the formation of calcareous deposits.

Use a non-abrasive cleaner. Check out the local hardware store for some good liquid cleaners that contain cleansers and polishers that help preserve the original luster of your sink. It is also possible to use other types of liquid cleaners. Never use abrasive cleaners or contain chlorine (sodium hypochlorite) or hydrochloric acid. Never use steel wool or scouring pads.

Rinse cleaners after use and wipe down the sink to prevent calcareous deposits.

Never pour paint into the sink. The chemicals contained in the acrylic paint react with the surface of steel sinks and leave permanent marks in less than 24 hours. Latex paints generally do not leave permanent marks if removed with the paint manufacturer’s recommended thinner. Read the thinner guidelines thoroughly before cleaning the sink.

Use vinegar and water to remove chalk deposits that may have formed in the sink.

If you use a polishing product for stainless steel, rub in the grain direction of the steel. Read the instructions for the polishing product thoroughly before performing this task. Use a damp cloth to polish. At the end of the polishing, rinse with clean water and rub the sink with a soft cloth with a slight pressure to remove any traces of cleanser. For more precautions, test it out on a limited surface.

Do not drop sharp objects in your sink and do not use the sink as a cutting board, as this may damage or scratch the finish. Materials harder than stainless steel damage its surface (stone, diamond, glass, ceramics and abrasive cleaners).

When it comes time to unclog your garbage disposal make sure to consult a guide with any questions that you may have.

That’s it for today guys!
