Ceramic Cleaning Tips
The ceramic used for the Franke kitchen sinks has a smooth, impervious surface, which is resistant to all standard household chemicals. For day-to-day care, all you need is water and a damp cloth.
Abrasive cleaners should not be used as they will dull the gloss finish. We find the best thing to do to keep your sink dazzling is to apply a dilute solution of bleach every 2 to 3 days. Apply with a sponge or a soft kitchen cloth and rinse the surface of the sink thoroughly with plenty of water. Not only will it make the surface shine, it will also help to keep the sink hygienic.
Tried and tested cleaning agents such as household vinegar or vinegar solution can be used to remove limescale deposits. For stubborn stains, cover with a piece of kitchen paper soaked in vinegar and leave to stand overnight.
We recommend to avoid using the following:
› Abrasive cleaners should not be used as they will dull the gloss finish
› Be careful with all substances containing fluoride, such as rust removers and toothpaste. Make sure that deposits are removed immediately as they can cause stains if left for any length of time.
› The use of plastic washing up bowls
What is Ceramic made from?
Franke Ceramic kitchen sinks are made of liquid ceramic which is then fired to create a material that feels incomparably smooth and is extremely hard-wearing
The liquid Ceramic consists of quartz, kaolin and china clay. It is poured into a mould under high pressure. The sink is then dried, and imperfections worked by hand with sponges. The sink is then glazed, then passes through the kiln for 20 hours which at its hottest reaches 1200 degrees Celsius. Once this has been completed, the sinks then go through their high quality control to ensure every sink is perfect
