Cleaning the Kitchen Sink and Keeping it Clean

Regular Maintenance

  • After use: Clean the sink with lukewarm water using a liquid detergent, such as BRILLIANTand a soft cloth. 
    Daily stains should be removed immediately.
  • Twice a weekWith daily use, a layer of limescale tends to form, especially on the bottom of the tanks, which becomes thicker and thicker. 
    This layer is very porous and absorbent, so it is easy to stain. 
    The presence of any stains on the bottom of the tub can be attributed to this accumulation of limescale, which should be avoided, you have to descale the sink at least a couple of times a week.

Avoid the use of:

  • Slightly abrasive powders
  • Slightly abrasive cleaning creams
  • Aggressive Cleaners
