SILGRANIT® GENERAL CARE & CLEANING
Daily cleaning may be done with any non-abrasive cleaner (i.e. Bar Keeper's Friend, Soft Scrub, Soft
Scrub with Bleach, or dishwasher soap). After every use, rinse and wipe the sink dry with a clean, soft
cloth to eliminate any water spots or soap film build-ups. Please go to www.BLANCOAMERICA.COM or
our YouTube channel for care and cleaning instructions.
REMOVING STAINS AND MINOR SCUFF MARKS:
Please use a mild abrasive cleanser, along with a soft scouring pad. For stubborn stains ~ a solution of
50% bleach, 50% water should only be used for tough, stubborn stains. Let the solution sit in the bottom
of the sink for one hour; then scrub. Rinse well. Also, the use of BAR KEEPERS FRIEND (directions
included on bottle or can) will help remove stubborn stains. (NOTE: Dark colored sinks must be rinsed
thoroughly with hot water).
LUSTER: Mineral oil applied with a damp cloth can be used to restore the luster but is typically not
necessary.
MISCELLANEOUS:
To remove Calcium Deposits (a white ring around the bottom of your sink): use LIME AWAY or CLR
cleaner. To remove Adhesive Labels: use rubbing alcohol. Note: Always test any stain removers in a
small, non-visible location
WHAT NOT TO USE:
1) Do not use any abrasive cleaning agents or scrub pads, such as Steel Wool
2) Straight bleach
3) Commercial alkalis, such as ammonia and/or caustic solutions
4) Drain blocking chemicals that involve filling the sink with water
5) Do not use the sink for cleaning paint or grout materials
Note: Always test any stain removers in a small, non-visible location
