Here is how to clean a fireclay sink:

01.

Scrub It Down

Fireclay has the advantage when it comes to being simple to care for and keep clean. The best way to keep your fireclay sink in great condition is to regularly scrub it down with dish soap and warm water, using a soft sponge. Rinsing it down and drying it off with a soft dry cloth will prevent soap scum build up.

Sit & Wait

Avoid the use of abrasive cleaning products or scouring pads. These may degrade the surface of your sink. For treating caked on soap scum, spray your sink down with a 80/20 water to white vinegar solution, and allow it to sit for 5 minutes before scrubbing, rinsing and drying.

Set In Stains

For set in stains, do the same but with a 90/10 solution of water and bleach. Remember that bleach and vinegar should never come into contact with each other, as they create toxic fumes when mixed.
