Stone Vessel sinks Stain Removal

Stone vessel sinks are very beautiful and the last thing that you want is a stain to deflect this beauty. Unfortunately, it is possible to stain your stone basin sink if you are not careful, so we have some tips for you to get rid of stains.

In order to prevent the staining of your stone vessel sink you should keep it very clean at all times. A clean stone basin sink will always look elegant in your bathroom. If you do notice a stain then you need to take action straight away.

If you leave a stain, the porous nature of the stone will make the stain ingrained and hard to shift. You can end up with a permanent blemish if you leave it too long. Therefore, you must act swiftly to get rid of any stains as they appear.

You need to remove stains using the right cleaners, as different stone types will react differently to different cleaning agents. Use a neutral pH cleaning agent specially formulated for stone. If the stain is proving difficult to shift, you can use a stronger cleaning agent that is right for the type of stone that your sink is made from.

When you have finished treating the stain on your stone vessel sink, pour some distilled water into it so that you prevent any chemicals from drying to fast. This will help the cleaning agent work on the stain for longer. Use a poultice here. This is easy tom make from liquid dish detergent and flour.

Spread the poultice so that it covers the stain and then seal it off with saran wrap. You can fix everything in place with some masking tape and then leave it overnight. Wait 24 hours for the poultice to dry before you remove the plastic. You can then remove the poultice with a putty knife and then wash everything down with water and a neutral cleaner.
