CARING FOR SOLERA STAINLESS STEEL

Stainless Steel is a very durable material, but not completely maintenance free. Stainless steel is a metal alloy created from a combination of metals, including nickel and chromium. Chromium creates a protective film of chromium oxide over the surface when exposed to air. If the sink's surface is left wet or coated with food or other contaminates, the metals in the sink cannot form this protective layer and can become susceptible to stains and discoloration. If properly maintained, your sink will last a lifetime and continue to add charm and beauty to any decor.

ROUTINE CARE

  • Douse your sink with a mild abrasive cleaner.
  • With a soft sponge, scrub with the grain of your sink.
  • Rinse immediately with pure water and dry.

STREAKS

  • Completely dry and add a few drops of olive oil to a paper towel
  • Wipe the oil over streaked areas.
  • Rinse immediately with pure water and dry.

SMUDGES

  • Pour undiluted white vinegar onto a soft sponge.
  • Gently rub the soft sponge over smudges or spots and the surrounding areas.
  • Rinse immediately with pure water and dry.
