Learn how to care for and clean Elkay stainless steel sinks.
- Use an ordinary mild detergent and soft cloth, rinse and towel dry.
Protect Your Sink
- Steel soap pads should never be used; particles can adhere to a stainless steel sink surface and will eventually rust.
- Light scratches are normal for stainless steel sinks; over time they will blend into the uniform finish pattern.
- Do not use dish mats as these can trap soap and dirt making sink maintenance more time-consuming.
- We recommend the use of an Elkay bottom grid or rinsing basket to protect your sink.
- Avoid storing open containers of household cleaners and chemicals containing chloride such as bleach, acid, and drain cleaners or toilet bowl cleaner beneath the sink. Vapor emission from the chlorides can cause corrosion and pitting to the exposed stainless steel and other metals including faucet water supply lines.
- Run cold water when pouring boiling water into sink.
