How Should You Clean a Kohler Neoroc Kitchen Sink?

Kohler is a well-known kitchen and bathroom company. A top reason for this fame is that the company makes highly durable sinks using high-quality materials and construction. One of these materials, Neoroc, is mainly known for durability and resistance to damage from everyday use, like scratches, stains, and fading. This article will explore what makes a Kohler Neoroc Kitchen Sink durable and how to care for the sink to ensure long-lasting functionality and beauty.

What Makes Neoroc Kitchen Sinks Durable

Neoroc is a Kohler-proprietary composite material, a mixture of natural stone and resin. The result is a rock-hard composite designed to withstand years of use in the kitchen. Kohler created the material’s proprietary formula with durability at the forefront. The wear and tear that Neoroc sinks are resistant to include the following:

  • Impacts: The hard natural stone is highly resistant to impact forces, so accidentally dropping dishes or pans in the sink is unlikely to cause the bowl to chip or scratch.
  • Stains: Neoroc sinks are formed under high pressure, which means the material has few pores, reducing the chance of staining.
  • Heat: A Neoroc sink is highly heat-resistant, withstanding temperatures up to 750 degrees Fahrenheit.

While many homeowners who have a Neoroc sink see the durability of the sink first-hand, some want to know how to keep their sink looking great for many years. As such, here are tips for getting the most out of your Neoroc sink.

Caring for Neoroc Kitchen Sinks

First, to keep your sink in top condition, make sure to clean and dry the sink after each use. Rinse thoroughly and use a soft cloth to wipe the sink dry. Avoid using steel wool, wire brushes, or other abrasive sponge pads to clean the surface. You may use mild abrasive cleaners occasionally to clean tough spots. However, strong abrasive cleaners run the risk of scratching or dulling the surface of the sink.

Another vital factor is to always remove food particles found in or around your Kohler Neoroc kitchen sink. Avoid leaving dirty dishes and pans, coffee grounds, tea bags, or other staining materials in contact with the surface for extended periods. Some discoloration can occur depending on the food particles and how long particles have been left in the sink. The ideal course of action is to prevent this situation from arising.

To restore color and shine:

  1. Apply 1 or 2 teaspoons of mineral oil to a clean, dry cloth.
  2. Wipe the sink thoroughly with the cloth to evenly distribute the oil in a thin layer.
  3. Allow the oil to sit for a minute, then buff away any excess oil.

To prevent a Neoroc sink from deteriorating, consider adding kitchen sink accessories. For example, accessories such as bottom basin racks can help protect the surface from scratches or scuffs.

Do not store open containers of cleaners or chemicals such as acids, bleach, sodium chloride, lye, toilet bowl cleaner, drain cleaner, or hard water stain removal products under your sink.
