Yes but be careful not to rub too hard as this will etch the porcelain. Don't do it too often. Perhaps cleaning it more often would prevent the heavy cleaning .

A Master Collection designer Thermocast cast acrylic double bowl kitchen sink with a rich high gloss finish that is easy to clean with non-abrasive cleaners.

  1. 1

    Put on rubber gloves. Spray the sink with a nonabrasive commercial kitchen cleaner, covering all surfaces of the sink with the spray.

  2. 2

    Dampen a sponge in warm water. Wipe the sponge over the sink, scrubbing at any visible dirt.

  3. 3

    Rinse the sink with warm water and then dry it with a clean towel.

  4. 4

    Fill the sink with warm water and add 1 tsp. of chlorine bleach per gallon of water, once a month. This will sanitize the sink, and is recommended by Thermocast. Let the bleach-water mixture remain in the sink for 15 minutes, then drain the sink. Rinse.

  5. 5

    Apply liquid automotive polish to a clean, soft cloth. Wipe the cloth over the sink to remove any scratches that may have occurred. Buff the sink using a circular motion. Rinse.

Abrasive cleaners may scratch Thermocast sink surfaces--using abrasive cleaners may also void the warranty.

How do i clean it it has white water stains and we have soft water and i can not find my manual. about 3 years old double kitchen sink black from home depot


Question...is this a black enamel coating on the sink? If so, be careful not to use abrasive cleaners on the sink or it will scratch the finish. Hard scrubbing will do the same if the cloth/sponge that you are using is somewhat abrasive. I have used "Lime away" or "CLR" and both have worked fine for me. You can get these solutions at Wal-Mart, Home Depot or Lowes. Note that this will continue to stain unless you resolve your water issue. This may be done by getting a "Home water filtration" device installed. This can be pricey though. Good luck.

Harry -
I would first see if your friend has a special ceramic cleaner in his or her cleaning supplies cupboard. If you can't find a ceramic cleaner, the best thing you can do is use hot water to clean the surface. All-purpose cleaners (like Cif) can damage the ceramic glass so it's best to avoid using them.
Also, look in your friend's cleaning supplies cupboard for a metal razor scraper. Use the razor scraper to scrape off any burnt-on food or spills. Do this by holding the scraper at approximately a 30 degrees angle to the cooktop while wearing an oven mitt to protect your hands. If no scraper is available, don't resort to a knife or abrasive sponge as these could damage the ceramic glass.
When the cooking surface is cool, apply a few dabs of the ceramic cleaner (if you found it) in each burner area and work the cleaning cream over the cooktop surface with a damp paper towel. Then wipe down with water and dry with a clean paper towel.
If no ceramic glass cleaner is available, it is sufficient to wipe down with hot water and a soft sponge. Never use abrasive sponges or scouring pads on ceramic glass cooktops. Also watch out for corrosive cleaners such as over sprays, cleaners containing chlorine or ammonia and stain removers - these will just further damage the surface.

Recomended cleaning for kitchen porcelain sink


Scouring powders or cleansers contain abrasives commonly used to clean and remove stubborn stains that are slow to respond to chemical action alone.

However, use of an abrasive cleaner may scratch and damage smooth finishes such as porcelain, fiberglass or enamel making it even more difficult to clean the surface in the future.

New kitchen and bathroom fixtures do not require a scouring cleanser to clean them of soap films and body oils. Dissolving soil by soaking with the correct non-abrasive cleaner (especially a foaming type that sticks to the surface) then wiping and rinsing usually does the job.
When cleaning older, abused fixtures, choose the mildest abrasive cleaner available such as a Soft Scrub -type product or baking soda, and apply just enough that, with light pressure, the embedded soils are loosened and may be rinsed away.

Stains in my thermocast sink


Rinse after every use. Sanatize with Bleach once a month. Use a soft cloth or sponge and liquid soap to remove residue. Scratches can be buffed and polished with a liquid based auto polish to maintain High Gloss finish. Do not use abrasive cleaners which will dull the finish. If you have used the sink in a non-normal usage and stained it, it can not be repaired under most circumstances. If you have not voided the warranty, you may be eligible for a replacement from the company.
