How to Repair a Porcelain Kitchen Sink

Save

Your kitchen sink is one of the most necessary amenities in your home. To wash dishes, clean counters, and keep the kitchen tidy in general, your kitchen sink must remain in good condition. If your porcelain or ceramic sink cracks, repair the damage yourself. It's simple and will save you the cost of hiring professional help.

Things You'll Need

  • Soft cloth
  • Epoxy adhesive
  • Toothpick
  • Sponge
  • Appliance paint
  • Paintbrush
  • Wipe down the sink with a soft, dry cloth. Leave no moisture; otherwise, the epoxy and appliance paint will not harden or dry properly.

  • Dab a small amount of epoxy on top of the crack. Spread it into the crack with the tip of a toothpick. The toothpick is for easy navigation and maneuvering the epoxy into the fine crack lines.

  • Dampen the corner of a sponge and carefully wipe away the wet epoxy surrounding the repaired area, wiping the excess from around the crack but not on the crack itself. Let the epoxy dry for 24 hours.

  • Paint over the epoxy with appliance paint that matches the color of the porcelain sink, using a paintbrush. Allow about 10 minutes for the first coat of paint to dry.

  • Apply a second coat of paint if necessary.
