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.

Recently bought ex-display bathroom sink /unit.discovered cracks to underside of sink.can you recommend a repair solution?

I have to presume the sink is made of china and there is no repairing of china. There are two kinds of cracks, hairline from some sort of impact, and shrink. While the hairline crack can be visually disappointing, if it does not extend through the drain hole area it is a safe bet that the lavatory can be installed and used normally. A shrink crack resembles the cracks of a dried up lake bed and rarely cause any problems no matter where they are located. Rarely does not mean never.

I just want to be sure I place the sink properly into the new countertop. Are there certain distanced from the back or front I should be aware of? I have an Eljer tile-in bathroom sink, model 052-0317. 21...

The most critical dimension is the clearance between the backsplash (wall side) and the sink as you want to ensure that there is room for whatever faucet set you've selected. Typically you want to leave 4 1/2 to 5" between the rear of the sink and the backsplash for the faucet but that's not critical as long as you leave sufficient space for it. A typical bathroom countertop is 22" deep so your large sink will be close fit. Now, if the faucet mounts through holes in the sink itself you can just center it.

Small chips and scratches

If your sink is porcelain or enamel, you can use a "tub refinishing" epoxy to resurface the sink. The two-part epoxies (that you have to mix together) appear to work much better than the non-mixing epoxies. Make sure that you follow all directions. Also, be aware that anything you use to resurface with will not be as durable as the original porcelain or enamel (so stay away from harsh abrasives). You may want to mix only a portion of the epoxy and retain the rest to fix any issues that develop over time. As long as you don't mix the two parts, they should be good for many years.

Very faint surface crack has appeared on base of my new enamel sink is it repairable??

If the crack is merely just a surface scratch and has NO depth to it. Then yes you can fix it and will never be able to tell a scratch was there before.

Most Home repairs store, i.e. Home Depot, Menards, Lowes carry scratch remover products. There might be a special kind specifically for enamel, make sure to check the package. The instructions are very straight forwards. Should not have any problems.

If it is a Crack, there is also like a bondo type product at the same stores that will fix it too...That takes a bit more technique to make sure its smooth and blends in with the rest but either way make sure you read labels and follow instructions.

I hope this Helps...Thanks for using

Belfast sink repair company in ireland?

Sorry to disappoint you, but unlike steel or cast iron ceramic sinks cannot be re-enamelled. To do so someone would have to grind off the remaining enamel and then reapply and re-fire the sink: not only would this be very laboiur intensive but the sink would be unlikely to survive the mechanical and heat processes involved.

If you can't live with your crazed or cracked enamel then buy a replacement sink. They're still manufactured as there is a demand for them.
