Use and Care Instructions

 

STAINLESS STEEL SINKS

  • After the installation and removing the foil from the sink, it's necessary to clean the sink from any metal or other particles otherwise the surface of the sink can be permanently damaged, if particles get in touch with the wet surface of the sink.

  • Regular cleaning makes your sink nicer but also improves its usability. We recommend wiping the sink with a soft cloth after every use. Doing so, you will prevent building up limescale.

  • For cleaning, use soft cloth and liquids which are intended for household cleaning. Avoid using liquids which contain chlorine may damage stainless steel.

  • Do not use abrasive cleaners or abrasive cloths, if you want to keep your sink shiny. For the same reason do not store such cleaners in the cabinet under the sink.

  • It is very important not to leave mild metal materials and cast iron cookware on the stainless steel surface, because it can lead to unwanted chemical reactions and appearance of tough stains, or even to permanent damage of material.
  • In order to avoid condensation, the ventilation inside the cabinet is required.

  • A sink can be damaged or scratched if hit with solid objects.

 

XGRANIT SINKS

  • The best maintaining result will be achieved if you clean your sink on daily bases, with a washing up liquid and a nonabrasive sponge, and then rinse well with water.

  • Dry the sink with a soft cloth to remove any water residue. Drying the sink is very important to prevent from building up limescale, especially in „hard" water areas.

  • Limescale absorbs dirty particles so your sink may appear soiled. Therefore, occasionally clean your sink with a solution of water and vinegar (2 parts of water, 1 part of vinegar) and keep it over night. Then scrub the sink and rinse well with water. For more stubborn marks, it is recommended that you use a cleaner which is designed for cleaning limescale and give it a good rinse.

  • During the time silver lines can appear on the surface of your sink as a result of a contact with metal cutlery and cookware. These marks are in fact metal deposits from the metal cookware or cutlery. These can easily be removed by scrubbing them away with a detergent and an abrasive pad.

  • For more stubborn stains apply Vanish on a desirable place and leave it for about two hours. After that scrub them away with an abrasive pad and give it a good rinse.

  • Do not spill alkali, paint remover, or drain cleaner in your sink. If this happens, rinse with water immediately, for contact with such chemicals may lead to a color change.

  • Do not cut anything with a knife directly on the surface of the sink. Always use a chopping board.

  • We do not recommend the sink to be used as a cooling place for hot cookware that are just taken from the oven, or stove. Please use a pad or tray for that purpose.
