How to Protect Kitchen Sink from Stain and Water Spots?
When the kitchen sinks are in use, it is inevitable that they will have spots and stains from the used pots and pans and even the stagnant water. Moreover, in some places, the water supply gives hard water which again is a reason for stains on your kitchen sinks.
However, Ruhe has a solution for the clean freak in you! The stainless steel kitchen sinks are manufactured from AISI-304 Grade Stainless Steel which is one of the best raw materials on the market. The surface of this material is so smooth and glossy that it does not let any food stick to it and leave a stain on it. The steel has a good amount of Nickel, around 8% which helps in resisting rusting and corrosion that takes place when in constant contact with water.
Any kitchen may benefit from having a stainless steel sink because of how easy it is to clean and disinfect them. But there’s a downside with stainless steel in general; if not maintained properly it might get dull.
Here’s how you can take care of your kitchen sinks so that they last for a long time with the sheen and gloss!
Keep It Dry!
Keep your sinks dry after every use. The moment water stagnates, that is where the saga of spotting and staining begins. Preventing water spots is one of the most crucial methods to maintain your stainless steel sink from appearing dull. After each usage, wipe the sink thoroughly dry to prevent water from drying and leaving stains. Additionally, it's crucial to regularly rinse and wash out the sink to avoid any food particles or cleansers clinging to the surface.
Food and germs that stick to the surface of a stainless steel sink that is scratched which may lead to further corrosion and rusting. Although it may be tempting to place a rubber mat at the bottom of the sink to avoid scratches, this can also trap waste and bacteria. To enable water and waste to pass through the sink and down the drain, you can place a metal grid on the surface of the sink.
Soft Fiber Cloth for Wiping
Water stains will continue to appear sometimes. To remove the water stains and bring back the sheen of your sink, polish it using a soft, lint-free cloth, such as a microfiber cleaning cloth.
Using vinegar, lemon juice or orange peel as a cleaning agent is one option. Because these compounds are acidic, these procedures are effective. The buildup of the stains on the stainless steel sink is broken down by these elements. They are easy home remedies to take care of your kitchen sinks.
Clear the sink ASAP!
Wash your sink after every use. This not only helps in keeping your sinks stain-free for a longer time but is also a hygienic practice. You shouldn't leave food sitting in the sink if you want the stainless steel to stay shiny. Instead of letting dishes soak, wash them right away or put them in the dishwasher. After cleaning it, washing your hands, or throwing away the salty pasta water, rinse the sink.
