Granite sinks are preferred in most homes. These sinks will stay looking like new if you take care of them. If you don't clean and disinfect them on a regular basis, they will start to build up a layer of limescale. Bleach can be diluted to sanitise and clean the granite sink. It is important that you use bleach the right way so you do not damage your granite sink.

Tips and warnings

  • You can use one cup of vinegar with three cups of water to clean your granite sinks. The vinegar will break up any limescale build-up so you can easily wipe it away.
  • Placing bleach on your granite sink without diluting it will cause the colour to change. You will not be able to change it back if this happens.
