Stainless steel is one of the most common materials for sinks. It’s no surprise since stainless steel is a durable material with a wide range of benefits that make it simple to maintain and thereby extend the life of your sink.
For everything to flow smoothly in the kitchen, it all needs to be practical, easy-care and hygienic. A sink in stainless steel withstands direct contact with hot saucepans or frying pans, without the worry of cracks or chips arising in the sink’s surface. It’s also kind to glass and porcelain that can easily slide around when helpful children take care of the washing up.
Furthermore, stainless steel is hygienic since nothing – not even stains or bacteria – can penetrate the impermeable surface. With a damp cloth and mild detergent, you can easily wipe the surface dry.
After you start using your new and shiny sink, small thin scratches can soon appear on the surface. It’s completely normal and nothing to worry about since this is a natural property of stainless steel. The material always gets scratches, but you can rest assured that the scratches never run deep. With regular use and care, they even out and become less visible as the sink develops a surface that is more matte over time.
Wipe the surface with a soft damp cloth and maybe a little mild detergent. Then rinse with water and wipe off with a dry cloth to avoid water stains. Remember to always wipe in the surface’s fibre direction since it gives a finer shine with fewer stains after drying. Never use steel wool, scouring powder, hard or sharp objects that can scratch the stainless-steel surface. By taking care of your sink in stainless steel, it will serve its purpose and look good for many more years.
