Just a few important measures will ensure that a stainless steel sink remains unchanged over time:
• Use only mild detergents and apply them with a soft cloth or suede to remove light dirt or fingerprints, or nylon sponges (“Scotch-Brite”) for stubborn dirt.
• Rinse with plenty of clean water.
• Promptly dry with a soft cloth in the direction of the satin finish.
• To prevent streaks or traces of limescale, do not leave wet sponges or other objects on the surface for a long time, as they could cause staining and dull the shine of the stainless steel.
• Do not leave corrosive solutions or ferrous tools (e.g. scissors) on the steel surface.
• We do not recommend leaving acidic foods or those with high salt content in contact with the sink for a long time. If this happens, we recommend rinsing it thoroughly.
• It is also important to pay attention to the water quality, not only its hardness, but also the percentage of iron: if high, it could cause the formation of dark spots, similar to rust.
•We suggest weekly cleaning with a specific creamy product recommended by CM, such as “Buffel Inox”. Apply it pure (undiluted) with a paper towel in the direction of the satin finish.
Cleaning PVD treated steel
The uniform colour of PVD treated products means additional precautions are needed. When cleaning the stainless steel sink, we therefore recommend following the instructions, with the addition of a few essential measures. During maintenance/cleaning, we recommend avoiding the use of pumice, steel scourers, and sponges or cloths impregnated with abrasive powder. In the event of slight discolouration or persistent limescale stains, clean with a soft cloth and vinegar. Do not use any other acidic or synthetic detergent containing chlorine, fluorine, muriatic acid, oxygen or bleach.
