Stainless Steel Sink Care

Do's

  • Many cleaners work well with Karran stainless steel sinks. All that is generally required is a simple liquid soap and a dish rag. Some of the cleaners that also work, only if needed, are Bar Keeper's Friend, Zud, Comet, Flitz, Soft Scrub™ and Mr. Clean.
  •  The most important maintenance requirement for any stainless steel sink is to thoroughly rinse and wipe out the sink after each use with a dish rag or paper towel. Remaining water, food, soap residue and mineral deposits may remain on your sinks surface after use if not rinsed thoroughly, and if left there may mark your sink, requiring more intensive cleaning later.
  •  When scouring your sink (with a 3M Scotch-Brite, which may be done periodically only if needed, ensure that you rub in the direction of the satin finish grain lines.

DON’T

  •  Do not scour across the satin finish grain lines. This will damage the lustrous satin finish of your sink.
  •  Never leave soaps, detergents or other cleansers on your sink’s surface to dry. Most contain chlorides and chemicals that could, if left on the sink’s surface, damage it.
  •  Do not soak your sink with solutions of bleach. Bleach, and most soaps and detergents, contain chlorides that will damage your sink if left on the surface for an extended period of time.
  •  Do not use steel wool on your sink. Steel wool can break down and leave small steel particles on your sink’s surface that will rust. If aggressive cleaning is needed, use a 3M Scotch-Brite™ pad.
  •  Do not leave wets sponges and cloths in your sink. They may lead to surface rust.
  • Water quality in your area may affect your sinks appearance. When water has a high iron content, it may leave a brown stain on your sink. Over softened water will leave a white film on the sink’s surface. Thorough rinsing and towel drying will help alleviate these issues.
  •  The use of rubber mats is not recommended as they may cause possible pitting or surface rust. If mats are used, remove them from your sink after each use.
  • Stainless steel, like all metallic surfaces, will scratch. These scratches will blend into the overall satin finish of your sink over time. Do not use your sink as a cutting board or chopping block. This type of use may cause deep scratches in the finish of your sink.

Quartz Sink Care

Do's

  • Luster Pro cleaning oil  is a specially formulated oil-based cleaning solution. It is perfect for giving your quartz sink that extra shine and sparkle when needed. After thoroughly cleaning and drying, place a small amount (size of a quarter coin) in the bowl and wipe all over the surface of the sink with a cloth. Apply more if needed and use it as often as desired.
  • Normal impurities-Residue from washing up - Clean your sink with water, a non-abrasive cleaner (liquid dishwashing soap, Bar Keepers Friend, Soft Scrub with bleach), and a cloth, then rinse well and dry. This should be done after every use. Doing this will eliminate water spots and soap film build-up.

  • Metal abrasions-Created by day to day use of pots, pans, and cutlery - Use a rub-out sponge (Mr. Clean Magic Eraser sponge). Follow up by cleaning your sink with water, liquid dishwashing soap, and a cloth, then rinse well and dry.

  • Limescale stains-Calcium deposits - Use vinegar or a commercial limescale & rust removers such as Lime Away or CLR. With vinegar, dilute 50% with water and let it soak into the affected areas for 20 minutes. Rinse thoroughly then dry. With a commercial limescale & rust remover, follow the directions for use on the packaging, then rinse the sink thoroughly and dry.

  • Stubborn stains-Use a mild abrasive cleaner such as Bar Keeper’s Friend and a soft scouring pad. A diluted bleach solution may also be used. Mix 1 part household bleach with 1 part water and let soak in the sink for 1 hour. Drain, rinse thoroughly, and dry. Do this whenever necessary.

DON'T

Acrylic Sink Care

Acrylic Daily Cleaning

  • For your Karran acrylic sink is a 3M Scotch-Brite pad and Comet, Ajax, or any other powder detergent.
  • The special satin finish of this sink will improve with the use of powder detergents, but all liquid detergents will also prove satisfactory. Please be careful with drain cleaners.
  •  Make sure that the cleaning agent goes down the waste outlet and that it does not sit in the basin. Some drain cleaners react relatively violently as one would expect by the very nature of the requirement of the product and instructions for handling are always given precisely on the product.

Acrylic Daily Care

  • This material is resistant to heat and is unlikely to mark below temperatures of 360°F. This means, in practical terms, that pots in which water and vegetables for example are boiled could be left on your sink for a limited (short) period of time without causing damage. However extended exposure to a hot pot will cause damage.
  • Our recommendation is to always let hot items cool before placing them in your sink. Alternatively, run some cool water when placing a hot pot into the sink. By doing this there is no chance of marking your sink as the hot item is instantly cooled.
  • Additionally, when draining pots of boiling water into your sink, we recommend running cold water into the bowl at the same time.
  • Scratches and small chips from sharp utensils can occur but can easily be removed by sanding with a 3M Scotch-Brite pad for fine scratches, and sandpaper for deeper scratches and small chips. Use coarse sandpaper (100 or 150 grit) to start, finishing off with fine-grit sandpaper and a 3M Scotch-Brite pad.
