Care & Cleaning

Directions for Care & Cleaning of Our Products

Rinse all food and beverage residue from the sink as soon as possible. Some food & beverage residues, if left to sit in the sink, may require the use of detergent or an abrasive cleaner.

HARD TO REMOVE FOOD & BEVERAGE RESIDUE

Abrasive cleaners such as SoftScrub, Ajax, Comet, Bon Ami or Bar Keeper’s Friend, may be used to remove mild stains and for routine cleaning. The use of an abrasive pad such as “Scotch-Brite” will remove most of the tougher stains. For the most stubborn stains, fill the sink about one quarter full with a 50/50 solution of bleach and water. After 10 or 15 minutes of soaking drain solution from the sink as you rinse both sides and bottom. Note: Do not use steel wool or metal scouring pads.

MINERAL BASED STAINS

Cleaners designed to remove iron or rust should not harm the sink, nor will solvents such as denatured alcohol, mineral spirits or acetone.

MARKS OR DISCOLORATION

White automotive rubbing compound may be used to remove stubborn marks or discoloration. Use of these products will not damage the solid surface. Always follow label directions. If these methods fail to produce acceptable results, contact the American Stonecast representative in your area.
