Can I use abrasive cleaner for ceramic sink


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 .

You can use Kohler cast iron kitchen sink cleaner, available on line, Jacuzzi recommends warm water, mild non-abrasive liquid soap for everyday cleaning and Barkeepers Friend or Zud for tougher stains. No Abrasives whatsoever. like Comet etc.

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.

I have a white Franke fireclay sink. We also have very hard water despite using an undersink filter. The sink is part of a new remodel and despite little use so far and lots of wiping, the water spots seem...


The best product I have found to remove water spots is a product called A-maz water stain remover in a 14 oz tub. There is no magic "wipe on,wipe off" product that I have found. Initially it is a little labor intensive but this is amazing stuff and can return your sink to its original luster.

This company also make a sealer but I have not tried it. A couple of alternatives might be Rain-X or Maguires auto wax. The concept here is to put a barrier down that will seal the pores of the sink and make it easier next time to remove the spots. My favorite is Maguires about every 3 months. I have provided a link below to the A-maz web site where you can find a distributor nearest you.

In the bottom of the sink it reminds you that something was poured in sink and ran down drain and let that area gray/discolored and down close to metal so anything grabs on it and it stays discolored


Depending on how old your sink is or how hard your water is, you may have an issue with mineral build-up on the bottom of the sink. If it's calcium, it would be white, so you wouldn't be able to see it. This sink is porcelain, so it isn't porous and should feel completely slick to the touch, especially when wet.

If it isn't, try cleaning it with a melamine sponge. There are various brands. They are all white rectangular squares and come with names like Magic Eraser (it's all the same stuff). This is a very fine but hard abrasive that should be able to clean off any film. If you continue to have issues, you can also use a cleaning product formulated to remove soap scum (like Scrubbing Bubbles).

How to maintain cleaning and scratch free black sink,my sink has spots and scratches on it. how to avoid these problem


Using soft scrub or some brand similar is the best thing to use. Manufacturers reccomend only soap and water, but soft scrub is best. Be sure to never use abrasives on any fixture, it will scratch and void warranty
Kohler makes a cleaning agent for cast iron sinks, if this is what you have.

hope this helps
