Stainless Steel Cleaning Tips
Most marks and discoloration on stainless steel sinks are caused by water-borne deposits. They are always the result of an outside source rather than coming from the steel itself. These stains are often seen as a “rainbow-effect” & can be avoided by removing wet cleaning aids from the sink after use, which avoids watermarking & rust stains.
We recommend to avoid using the following:
› The use of plastic bowls for washing up, as these cause heavy localised scratching
› Leaving salt, vinegar, citric fruit juices, mustard or pickles on the surface as they can cause corrosion
› Abrasive cleaners such as bleach, scourers or wire wool pads
What is Stainless Steel made from and what are the benefits?
Franke stainless steel kitchen sinks consist of 70% recycled material and are up to 100% recyclable. It has a particularly high nickel content at 10% which provides rust resistance and chromium content at 18% which provides the sinks with its shine also ensuring it is equally resistant to heat as well as cold.
These sinks are corrosion-resistant, has an absolutely pore-free surface for easy cleaning and is extremely hygienic. Stainless steel also bonds with oxygen to form a passive protective layer that continuously renews itself.
