How to clean your ceramic/fireclay sink

For everyday dirt and grime, we recommend cleaning your ceramic/fireclay sink with mild dish soap or detergent with warm water and a soft cloth.

Follow the instructions for daily cleaning:

  • Slightly moisten the sponge under running water.
  • Squeeze a small amount of detergent onto the soft side of the sponge.
  • Clean dirt off your sink by rubbing the soft sponge over the surface in small, circular movements.
  • Wipe down the surface dry with a microfibre cloth.

For harder to clean stains on ceramic/fireclay sinks, we recommend using an equal-parts water and bleach solution or non-abrasive cleaner. Always rinse your sink thoroughly after cleaning and dry with a soft dry cloth to restore its original shine.
