Tip One: Clean Regularly

Cleaning your fireclay sink regularly will prevent dirt and grime build-up. Be sure to gently wash your fireclay sink with a wet soft cloth and dish soap.

Applying a liquid wax with a soft cloth or applicator will help maintain the fresh appearance of your sink. Using wax will help with drainage flow and easy clean-up. It also prevents any possible water spots or mineral deposits. Before applying, be sure your sink is completely dry. You may use your sink once the wax is completely dry.
