Care and Cleaning Sheet Stainless Steel Sinks

Maintaining the beauty of Stainless Steel Sinks, the easy care way...

Much of the beauty of stainless steel lies in its long-lasting wear and enduring good looks. Follow these few simple "how to" sink cleaning tips, and your stainless steel products from Just Manufacturing will retain their original beauty for many years to come.


An ounce of prevention ...

Forget the pound of cure. Stainless Steel is easily kept stain-free with these simple sink cleaning tips on how to clean stainless steel sink :

Since most soaps and detergents contain chlorides, Just recommends frequent rinsing of your stainless steel sink, preferably after each use.

Combine this simple daily treatment with weekly cleansing with an abrasive cleaner, ideally Bon-Ami or Zud. Unlike porcelain sinks, durable stainless steel stands up strongly to abrasive cleansers. Remember always to scrub in the direction of the polish lines so that your efforts blend with the surface of your sink.  For less aggressive approach, try cleaning your stainless steel sink with a paste of baking soda and water. Rinse well and dry. Regularly drying your sink works wonders to prevent water and surface rust marks.

Looking for that extra sparkle? Use flour power to polish your stainless steel sink by applying dry flour when the look you're after is a gleaming finish. Rub the flour in with a soft cloth, and then rinse and dry.

Club soda will do the sparkle trick as well. After placing the stopper in your sink, pour some club soda in and rub with a soft cloth. As always, dry with soft cloth to prevent water spots and surface rust.

Add some shine with a few drops of baby oil. Wipe off with paper toweling and repeat for added shine.

  Some things are best avoided: A few DONT's for Stainless Steel care...

Do not let soap cleansers dry on the sink's surface. Rinse regularly to keep the chlorides found in most cleansers from affecting the natural luster of stainless.

Steer clear of steel wool pads. The iron particles that are left behind can lead to rust and corrosion. For hard-to-clean projects, try a ScotchBrite scouring pad when the job at hand requires a little extra effort, again in the direction of the grain.

Avoid leaving steel and cast iron cookware in your sink for extended periods of time. Iron plus moisture on top of stainless can lead to surface rust and staining.

Rubber dish mats, wet sponges and cleaning pads are a no-no for a lengthy stay in your sink. Since they trap water, discoloration and staining can result.

Just as you do not use your cutting board to clean the dishes, do not use your sink as a cutting board. Knives and other sharp kitchen instruments will naturally damage the surface of your sink.
