Cleaning the Kitchen Sink and Keeping it Clean
After each use: Clean the sink with lukewarm water using the liquid detergent BRILLIANT for composite surfaces and MULTICARE for stainless steel sinks, and combine these cleaners with sponges ECOSPONGE ideal for all washing surfaces. Daily stains should be removed immediately.
Twice a weekWith daily use, an increasingly thick layer of limescale tends to form on the sink, especially at the bottom of the bowls. This layer, which is very porous and extremely absorbent, tends to stain easily, leaving marks all over the surface. Any stains on the bottom of the tank can be attributed to this limescale build-up, which must be avoided. To avoid this, the sink must be descaled at least a couple of times a week using in combination DEKAL and the cellulose side of ECOSPONGE.
DO NOT USE
