Suggestions for the Care and Cleaning
of your Elkay Stainless Steel Sink
RECOMMENDED CLEANSERS
• Do Not…Use rubber mats or dishpans in the sink. Leaving rubber
mats or dishpans in the sink can lead to surface rust or possible
pitting. However, if you insist on using mats or dishpans, please
remove them after each use and rinse thoroughly.
• Do Not…Leave wet sponges, cloths, or cleaning pads on the sink.
This can lead to surface rust.
Following these recommendations for the care and cleaning of your
stainless steel sink will insure that it will provide you with many years
of service.
Elkay has tested general household cleansers to measure their effectiveness in cleaning stainless steel sinks. The most aggressive
cleansers consist of Bar Keeper’s Friend, Zud and Lawrence Right
Work. Other cleansers, which are still effective, but less aggressive
include Ajax, Comet, Shiny Sinks Plus, Luneta, Soft Scrub, Mr. Clean,
Maas and Flitz. For everyday cleaning we recommend using Elkay’s
Stainless Butler Stainless Steel Cleaner + Polisher. The non-abrasive
formula is safe and effective for day to day cleaning. So to help maintain the beautiful finish of your stainless steel sink, use one of the
cleansers that Elkay recommends.
CHLORIDES
Today, chlorides are found in most all soap, detergents, bleaches and
cleansers; chlorides can be aggressive to stainless steel. However,
chlorides are very water soluble. Therefore, THOROUGH RINSING of
your sink after each use to remove any chloride residue and a weekly
cleaning is all that is required to keep your sink looking bright and
shiny.
RECOMMENDATIONS
FOR PROPER MAINTENANCE
• Do…Rinse thoroughly after each use. “Thorough” rinsing can be
done by running water for a few minutes and rubbing the cleaned
area with a clean sponge.
• Do…Towel dry after each use to prevent mineral deposits from
building up on the surface of the sink.
• Do…Clean the sink once a week, being sure to rub in the direction
of the satin finish grain lines, using an Elkay recommended cleanser.
• Do…Use an Elkay bottom grid or rinsing basket to “protect” the
finish. Bottom grids and rinsing baskets can remain in the sink and
will not cause rusting or pitting.
• Do Not…Rub the sink across the satin finish lines. Scouring across
the satin finish lines can damage the original sink finish.
• Do Not…Allow soap or other household cleansers to dry on the
surface of the sink. Most brands contain chemical additives which
will affect the original finish.
• Do Not…Use solutions of chlorine bleach and water in the sink.
Chlorides, which are found in most soaps, detergents, bleaches,
and cleansers, are very aggressive to stainless steel. If left on the
sink too long they can cause surface pitting.
• Do Not…Use a steel wool pad to clean your sink. If a more abrasive product is needed, use a green Scotch Brite pad being sure to
rub in the direction of the satin finish grain lines. Steel wool pads
have a tendency to break apart and small particles of steel can
become embedded in the surface of the sink. The steel particles will
rust and will give the appearance that the sink itself is rusting.
SCRATCHES
Like many metallic surfaces, your stainless steel sink will scratch.
These are merely usage scratches and over time will blend into the
overall finish of your sink with proper cleaning.
KNIVES
Your sink is designed to serve as many things but not as a cutting
board or chopping block. This type of use will lead to deep scratches
in the sink finish and will dull your knives. Elkay does offer various
cutting boards which will provide an additional work area.
WATER QUALITY
The quality of your water can affect your sink’s appearance. If your
water has a high iron content, a brown surface stain can form on the
sink giving the appearance of rust. Additionally, in areas with a high
concentration of minerals, or with over-softened water, a white film
may develop on the sink. To combat these problems, we suggest that
the sink be towel dried after use, and again, on a weekly basis, the
sink should be cleaned using a recommended cleanser.
FOODS
Heavy salt concentration or foods containing high levels of salt should
not be allowed to dry on the sink surface. Rinse your sink thoroughly
after use.
