Stainless Steel Sink Looking Grimy? Follow These 3 Tips to Get it Sparkling Again!

Stainless Steel Sink Looking Grimy? Follow These 3 Tips to Get it Sparkling Again!

You’d think a stainless steel sink would stay…well, stainless, right? Think again. While stainless steel sinks are resistant to rusting and corrosion, they can still get super grimy and need regular cleaning. If your kitchen sink is starting to look a bit worse for wear, follow these tips and you’ll have it sparkling again in no time!

1. Avoid using abrasive materials for cleaning stainless steel

Even though stainless steel is well protected from rust and corrosion, it can still be easily scratched and damaged by abrasive materials like steel wool and other metal scourers. With just a little water, the Magic Glass Restoration Nano Sponge turns into a powerful-yet-delicate scourer that can dig in and remove stains that other products can't touch. Bleach is also another abrasive cleaning product that definitely should be kept away from stainless steel, especially in the kitchen where food is prepared and utensils are kept and cleaned.

2. Use a specialised stainless steel cleaner

If you search Google, there are many homemade tinctures and recipes for cleaning stainless steel, but often, they aren’t as effective as they’re made out to be. You can also often find multipurpose cleaners that achieve amazing results on a range of surfaces like glass, stainless steel, ceramics and more!

3. Clean frequently to avoid nasty build-up

It’s just common sense that cleaning frequently is going to help keep the levels of grime in your sink to a minimum. It also makes cleaning easier in the long run - a quick wipe over once a week after washing the dishes as opposed to scrubbing through layers of build up every few months? We know which option we’d choose.

Hopefully these tips will help you to keep your stainless steel sink sparkling clean!
