Care & Maintenance for BLANCO Stainless Steel Sinks

Routine Care

After every use, rinse thoroughly, then wipe the sink dry with a clean soft cloth. Wiping is the key; this will inhibit water spotting and mineral deposits in severe hard water conditions.

BLANCOCLEAN, Bar Keepers Friend, Flitz, Gordon’s Miracle Shine and/or Shiney Sinks Plus (follow the directions on the product) are products available in hardware and grocery stores that can be used every day to protect, polish and clean your stainless steel sink.

What Not to Do:

Do not use any abrasive cleaners such as scrub pads or Steel Wool, as these products will dull and tarnish the finish.

Don't let household cleaning agents, such as bleach, sit in your sink for a long period of time as this may ruin the finish of your sink.

Surface Rust & Stains:

Stainless steel does not rust. Gordon’s Miracle Shine, Flitz and Bar Keepers Friend are all effective at removing "surface" residue such as: tarnish, rust, lime deposits and hard water stains. Follow the directions on the bottle.

Scratches:

Scratches are inevitable in any sink material, including stainless steel. Over time, these scratches will become uniform with the sink’s grain.

In regards to stainless steel, most minor scratches can be softened with a Scotch Brite (soft scour) pad, accompanied with a deep cleansing agent such as Bar Keepers Friend, Comet, ETC. Wet pad, apply cleansing agent, rub vigorously with the "grain" or finish of the sink (NOTE: DO NOT JUST RUB AGAINST THE GRAIN OR IN ONE AREA. YOU MUST RUB ACROSS THE ENTIRE SURFACE), then rinse thoroughly. For severe scratches, secure a pumice-rubbing compound from a hardware store, and follow the directions on the package. Note: Once the sink’s finish has been restored to your satisfaction, Blanco recommends the purchase of a customized sink grid to protect the bowl's bottom.

Care & Maintenance for Silgranit® Sinks

Routine Care

Daily cleaning may be done with any non-abrasive cleaner (i.e. BLANCOCLEAN Composite Sink Cleaner). After every use, rinse and wipe the sink dry with a clean, soft cloth to eliminate any water spots or soap film build-ups.

Removing Stains and Minor Scuff Marks:

Normal Stains ~ Use BLANCOCLEAN, along with a soft scouring pad.

Stubborn Stains ~ A solution of 50% bleach, 50% water should only be used for tough, stubborn stains. Let the solution sit in the bottom of the sink for one hour; then scrub. Rinse well. Also, the use of Bar Keepers Friend (directions included on bottle) will help remove stubborn stains. Finally, clean with BLANCOCLEAN to put a protective coating back on the sink's surface.

Luster:

BLANCOCLEAN can be used to help bring back the luster. Follow the directions on the bottle.

Miscellaneous:

To remove Calcium Deposits (a white ring around the bottom of your sink): use Lime Away

To remove Adhesive Labels: use Acetone (nail polish remover)

Note: Always test non-Blanco branded stain remover in a small, non-visible location

What Not to Use:

  • Do not use any abrasive cleaning agents or scrub pads, such as Steel Wool
  • Straight bleach
  • Commercial alkalis, such as ammonia and/or caustic solutions
  • Drain blocking chemicals that involve filling the sink with water

Note: Always test non-Blanco branded stain remover in a small, non-visible location
