Cleaning Durinox: How to look after your sink

Hard surface makes Durinox resistant

As a material, Durinox is extremely hard for uncoated stainless steel and is thus twice as resistant as conventional stainless steel surfaces. This makes the surface easy to look after and particularly straightforward to clean.

Cleaning recommendations for Durinox sinks and stainless steel worktops

Cleaning agents containing chlorine or hydrochloric acid should be avoided if you want to maintain the high-quality Durinox look. To avoid damaging the surface of your Durinox sink or worktop, do not clean it with steel wool, as this will cause scratches and permanent damage to the stainless steel surface. You should also avoid direct prolonged contact with rusty iron items like cast-iron pans, as these can leave unsightly marks.

Daily cleaning

A soft sponge or damp microfibre cloth are fine for everyday cleaning. Go over the wet sink thoroughly with a soft sponge to loosen any dirt. Pay particular attention to the corner radii and the basket strainer, as this is where most of the dirt particles usually settle.

Deep cleaning

Do not use any polishing agents when you do an occasional deep clean of Durinox surfaces. You can use vinegar-based or citrus cleaner to remove limescale or minor dirt.

BLANCO housekeeping tip:

A composition of roughly 20% vinegar to 80% water is the ideal mixing ratio, but a lot of dirt particles can easily be loosened with lemon juice in water

Special instructions
Do not use abrasive scouring agents (e.g. scouring cream, scouring powder, BLANCO POLISH or BLANCO DeepClean) to clean BLANCO Durinox stainless steel surfaces.

Everyday tips for all stainless steel surfaces
Although Durinox is extremely hard, if you want to preserve its unique surface structure, you should be mindful of a few things when it comes to everyday use. As with worktops made of other materials, you should not place overheated pots or pans directly on the worktop. Do not cut food on the surface itself if you want to avoid deep scratches; you could use one of our optional cutting boards instead. Although the material is scratch-resistant, hard or sharp-edged objects like heavy cooking utensils can leave unsightly streaks if they are slid across the worktop. If you’re unlucky, falling items could cause damage to the worktop surface.
