How to Clean a Stainless Steel Sink

Posted on January 4, 2012 by Reda Abouleish

Adding a stainless steel sink is a stylish choice for your home kitchen.   It always makes me feel like I’m in a top-notch chef’s kitchen when I see one in someone’s home.  It looks great, won’t crack and is durable.  But how do you keep it looking fresh and new after years of use?  Here are some tips on how to clean a stainless steel sink.

Use Mild Products

Skip the toxic cleaning products.  Switch to baking soda or white vinegar.   Baking soda eliminates odors and removes any stuck on grime.  White vinegar removes stains while polishing the stainless steel at the same time.  These two are household items you may already own. It is a no fuss, cost-effective, hassle free way to keep your sink looking pristine.

Implement Preventive Measures

The key to keeping your new kitchen sink clean is to employ preventive measures into the mix.   For instance, do not leave any metal canned products or cast iron for long periods of time in the sink.  This leads to staining.  Remember to never cut directly on a stainless steel surface.  If you are going to clean it then go with the grain.  This makes the material shine like new.  If you live in an area where hard water is a problem then wipe the sink dry after each use.

Stainless steel is not just used for kitchen sinks.  It is also an ideal material choice for processing plants, high pressure machinery, condensers, heat exchanger tubes and more.
