Your new ceramic sink is manufactured to the highest possible standards. To maintain its good looks, Carron Phoenix suggests you follow these guidelines. Most deposits can be removed with washing up liquid and hot water followed by a clean water rinse. It is also good practice to then dry the sink with a soft cloth as otherwise limescale can build up on the surface.
The quality of your water can affect the good looks of your sink by giving the appearance of staining. This “staining” is generally a build up of limescale or similar mineral deposit, particularly prevalent in hard water areas. Limescale readily absorbs staining agents such as tea, coffee, red wine, etc., spoiling the appearance of your sink. For this reason always rinse and dry your sink after each occasion you use it to avoid mineral deposits being left behind on the surface when the water evaporates.
To remove any limescale that has built up on your sink, try using a proprietary limescale removing product such as Viakal® or Limelite®. Alternatively, soak in a solution of one part vinegar to three parts water. This will loosen the scale, making it possible to scrub it away with an abrasive pad and kitchen sink cleaner.
A fast and easy way to remove water marks, grease or soap scum deposits, is with Coloured Sink Cleaner, or with a proprietary bathroom cleaner such as Ajax or Flash liquid spray. For everyday cleaning of your ceramic sink, using a soft cloth or sponge with some mild liquid soap or any vinegar-based cleaner is ideal.

Oil, grease and fingerprints
These are generally removed with washing up liquid and hot water but a solvent may be required (eg. White spirit or Methylated spirits). Care must be taken to use the proper safety precautions if using solvents.
Tea stains or vegetable juices
Likely to be stains that are clinging to mineral deposits, such as limescale, lying on the surface of the sink. See reference to mineral deposits, below.
Mineral deposits and scaling
Generally caused by build up of limescale, remove by soaking in a solution of vinegar (3 parts hot water to one part vinegar), then scrubbing the deposit away. Alternatively use a proprietary brand such as “Limelite”.
Don’t forget! – always finish off by rinsing your sink thoroughly with clean water to remove any residue, then dry it with a soft cloth to prevent limescale building up.
