Charlie Asked :I have read reviews that this sink is prone to staining - presumably due to the porous surface. Is there a manufacturer recommendation to stop this happening - other than frequent cleaning? Is there a recommended treatment to seal the sink surfaces?
Answered By QS Team :
I can confirm that we do not have many complaints about staining to our igneous sinks, however, when we do it's normally because of liquids not being suitably washed away and the sinks not being cleaned correctly. We advise that when using this sink, when tea, coffee, wine or any other staining liquid is being poured into the sink, this needs to be rinsed away as by not doing so can lead to staining. You can use a diluted bleach and water solution to clean the sink which helps with staining; however; regular cleaning with a cream cleaner such as Cif should keep the sink looking great!
julia Asked :Have just had a magma Range master sink in stone installed about 3 weeks ago. I am disappointed over how difficult it is to keep clean. I understood it not to stain, but already it is discoloured with the tea and coffee-dregs of normal use, and the stainless steel overflow has scratched. Help! My last sink was 14 years old, white porcelain from, Villeroy and Bosch, and I considered having it reinstalled in my new kitchen as it still looked so good. I only did not change because of the stone colour I had now in the kitchen. Can anyone help?
Answered By Alistair :
I have had the same one in for around 10 months now. Yes it is a real pain to keep clean and I have seen others which eventually retain these marks. So always clean it when done, otherwise you risk never getting rid of the marks! No easy way really :( This is the sink, you just got to live with it. Personally I feel it is worth the extra clean to have such a beautiful sink in comparison to the steel option etc. You may get some kind of water proof varnish that can be used?
