Blanco is a manufacturer of kitchen and bar sinks. It has been in business since 1925, when Heinrich Blanc's small company began to make copper parts for hot water bottles and stoves. Blanco sinks are made of two materials--stainless steel and a granite and resin composite material called Silgranit. Both types of Blanco sinks are easy to clean without a lot of effort.

Step 3

Clean away mineral deposits with a lime remover cleansing agent and a soft cloth or sponge. Avoid using abrasive cleanser that can scratch the stainless steel surface.

Clean Blanco Silgranit Sinks

Step 2

Clean small stains that mark the finish of a Blanco Silgranit sink with a non-abrasive kitchen cleanser and a clean sponge.

Step 3

Disinfect a Blanco Silgranit sink with a solution of equal parts bleach and water. Sponge the solution around the inside of the basin without letting the bleach pool in the sink for too long. Prolonged exposure to bleach can ruin the finish of Silgranit.

Tip

Although an abrasive cleaner should not be used on a Blanco stainless steel sink as part of a normal cleaning routine, it can be used carefully to buff out scratches. Apply a small amount of such a cleanser on a plastic scrubber sponge. Gently rub it into the scratch to even it out.
