To keep your new kitchen sink looking as dazzlingly beautiful as the day it was installed, we would like to give you a few tips on how to care for it.
The ceramic material used for our kitchen sinks has a smooth, impervious surface, which is resistant to all standard household chemicals. The material properties are continually subjected to stringent laboratory and usage tests and controls.
For day-to-day care, all you need is water and a damp cloth.
Abrasive cleaners should not be used as they will dull the gloss finish. In our experience to keep your sparkling glazed surface apply a dilute solution of bleach every 2 to 3 days.
Apply with a sponge or a soft kitchen cloth and rinse the surface of the sink thoroughly with plenty of water. Not only will it make the surface shine, it will also help to keep the sink hygienic.
Note: Bleach can be harmful both orally and on your clothes, so always wear rubber gloves and ensure you rinse properly. Ensure proper ventilation as bleach gives off strong fumes.
Tried and tested cleaning agents such as household vinegar or vinegar solution can be used to remove limescale deposits. For stubborn stains, cover with a piece of kitchen paper soaked in vinegar and leave to stand overnight.
You should be very careful with all substances containing fluoride, such as rust removers and toothpaste. Make sure that deposits are removed immediately as they can cause stains if left for any length of time.
This chart has been developed by Franke to assist in grading the various materials in terms of their performance characteristics for each category.
It is intended to act as a guide for different requirements: 10 points - the best material tested in this performance category. For example, in our tests Ceramic has a high resistance to staining.
