Villeroy and Boch produces kitchen sinks made of durable fire clay. Fire clay is ceramic fired at very high temperatures, which makes the material very hard. Villeroy and Boch then adds a special finish to the sinks. This finish, called Ceramicplus, makes the sinks extra scratch resistant and stain resistant, according to the manufacturer. With good care, your Villeroy and Boch sink will provide both beauty and functionality in your kitchen.
Wipe the sink dry with a towel when it gets wet. This helps prevent water deposits. Water deposits are not difficult to remove from Villeroy and Boch sinks, according to Kitchen Sinks, however, prevention is easy and may save you time cleaning later on.
Clean the fire clay sink with a little dish soap and water. This should be all that is necessary to remove dirt and oils from the sink. Rinse the sink out well after you are done scrubbing and wipe it with a towel to dry. For more stubborn stains, sprinkle baking soda on a damp sponge and scrub, or use a commercial cleaner containing bleach.
Place a rubber mat, or similar protective device, on the bottom of the sink before washing heavy pots or pans. Although fire clay sinks are very hard and durable, they can still be damaged (chipped or scratched) by heavy items knocking against them or if you accidentally lose your grip and drop a heavy item.
Don't leave metal pans or other metal objects sitting in the sink. The metal (especially if it, or the sink, is damp) may leave stains that you may have to scrub to remove.
