Fireclay kitchen sinks are very durable. Fireclay is one of the oldest manufacturing processes. Your kitchen sink is used daily and maintenance will keep your sink clean, protected, and looking new.

1 - Clean

To clean your fireclay sink, use a low abrasive cleaner and a sponge. Wiping it out after each use with just warm water and a sponge will keep down stains. If you do happen to get a stubborn stain, apply baking soda to the stain and rub with your sponge until it comes up.

2 - Repair

If you get a chip in the fire clay, it is important to get it fixed as soon as possible. Repair kits are available at home improvement stores, and are very easy to use. It will come with everything you need to repair and seal about six small repairs.

3 - Seal

To keep a nice luster on your sink, and keep it easy to clean, apply a coat of carnauba wax to the surface. Be sure it is clean and dry first. This is the same type wax you apply to your car. You will apply it the same way, making sure you rub until you have removed all of the residue. This will also alleviate water spots.
