KITCHEN SINK CARE
Stylish® stainless steel sinks are made from premium quality chrome nickel steel, which offers excellent strength and hardness, is highly resistant to staining, rust and corrosion - plus it won't chip, craze, flake or break.
Discolouration and most marks on stainless steel are caused by water-borne deposits clinging to its surface. They are always the result of an outside source rather than coming from the steel itself.
Please follow these quick tips for daily sink cleaning and care:
Rinse and dry your sink with a clean soft cloth, working with, not across, the grain; to prevent surface spots and lime build up stains caused by the water we use.
Use mild non-abrasive liquid cream cleaners that do not contain chlorine, sodium hypochlorite or hydrochloric acid to help maintain the original appearance of your sink.
Products like ‘Shiny Sinks’ or ‘Flitz & Bar Keepers Friend’ (available from most major supermarkets) can be used daily. It is helpful to dry the sink thoroughly after cleaning.
THINGS TO AVOID
Using abrasive sponge pads, wire brushes, metal scrub packs or steel wool as these items will scratch your sink as well as dull the finish.
Leaving salt, vinegar, citric fruit juices, mustard or pickles on the surface for any length of time as they can cause corrosion.
Abrasive cleaners such as bleach as these products will dull and tarnish the finish.
Defrosting frozen food directly on the surface of your sink as it will discolour the stainless steel. It is recommended to use a plate or pot which is placed in your sink.
Leaving wet sponges or cloths in or on the sink surface for long periods of time as they too may discolour the sinks. Similarly, the use of rubber coated mats may discolour the sink under prolong use.
