Hello Friends,

Many things pass through our sinks over the years our dishes and utensils as well as the food we eat. With so much use, it is important for our sinks to stay clean and cared for. Old sinks tend to collect dirt and grime more easily and can lose their shine and luster. Proper cleaning with the right materials will restore an old white kitchen sink to cleanliness and beauty.

Thanks and Regards,
John marrison

Hi John,

I've had stainless steel, enamel coated cast iron and corian sinks. Each as an advantage for cleanliness. All require routine cleaning. I found the stainless steel easy 'cause I would come back nice & shiney clean after scrubbing with a comet-type cleanser. The same was true for enameled cast iron but I was annoyed by the marks pots would leave. I switched to corian then, to avoid the seams. I use a soft-scrub type cleanser to scrub it clean but over time it has slowly gotten a bit yellower. Its an off white so not hugely noticable. This is after about 12yrs. I'm going back to the enameled cast iron I think.

I have a composite granite sink. I love it. it is black and no stains or dirt show (but I have to assume it is there) VERY easy to clean and every now and again - I throw some polish on it and it gleams.

This seems to be a great idea for a kitchen sink. I was also thinking of replacing my steel sink and I think I will give preference to a granite sink like yours.

Here it is. It is several years old now. I love the high ledge - is not space-restricting like a divided sink..hold big pans..and the higher ledge lets me wash dishes or peel veggies and sit the dishes or veggies up,high out of the sink. I didn't empty the drainboard - so excuse the mess.

Mine was an old house and I frequently had to clean my sinks because they got dirty very easily. I was tired of cleaning them and to be frank I hated working in my kitchen. I discussed with my husband and made him realize my difficulty. We planned for a kitchen renovation, and this time we made sure that we chose the right material, and most importantly involve professionals into work. The kitchen renovations company ( we chose was the first right decision we made. They got us installed quality stainless steel sinks, with a satin finish. I have been using them since last 3 years ,not only that they donít get dirty easily but once washed the they seem to be like newly fixed.

Stainless Steel sinks are from far the easiest sinks to clean and they give your kitchen a luxurious touch. If you are looking for a new sink there is an eCommerce called Focal Point Hardware that has all kinds of stainless steel sinks, counter-tops and everything you need for your kitchen. They are on sale now. All their products are being offered for a 12% less. I think their sale finishes tomorrow so run!

I personally love a brand called Blanco. They have amazing sinks at affordable prices.
