Caring for your Soapstone sink is easy!

These care instructions will provide you with a few tips on how to maintain your new sink and enhance its natural beauty to keep it both a functional and beautiful focal point of your home.

Your new sink has arrived in its natural finish. This is intentional to allow for proper adhesion if and when you have new countertops installed. To expedite your stone’s darkening process and enhance the look of your soapstone sink, you can use a mineral oil that’s readily available in any drug store, or you can apply a dry wax product specifically designed for soapstone applications.

Your soapstone will require multiple coats of mineral oil to maintain a dark, "wet” look. You can spread the oil directly onto your sink, or place it on a rag first and then wipe it onto the stone. Within a week of the first coat, the oil will have set into the surface and or evaporated that it will appear to dry out. The second coat will typically hold for about a month before it starts to evaporate. After that, the frequency of coating with mineral oil will be months or years before the surface starts to look dry. The quantity of oil you use on your sink, what you clean it with, and how dark you desire the surface to appear will also affect the frequency of oiling. Mineral oil is non-toxic and safe to use around food.

Dry-wax is another product available that enhances the color of your stone and can be purchased online or through a local stone fabricator. It is compatible with mineral oil so it’s acceptable to apply the wax over top of an existing oil treatment. Formed from natural walnut oils and carnauba wax, this product is safe to use on and around food preparation surfaces. One advantage to applying dry-wax is its staying power as it evaporates more slowly than mineral oil, cutting down on the frequency of applications.

In addition to oiling or waxing your sink, you may need to sand scratches out of the surface from time to time. Soapstone is a softer type of rock, which makes it more prone to marks and scratches that can easily be buffed out with common sandpaper. It is recommend to start with a low grit (100), then move up to a (200), and finally end with a (400) grit paper. Small circular motions will yield the best results. Once you are satisfied that you have removed all of the scratches, apply a light coat of mineral oil or more of your dry wax and your sink will look brand new.

Regular household cleaning products will not harm your soapstone, but it’s recommended you use mild soap and water for cleaning to avoid removing the mineral oil or wax treatment.

Stone Types

Granite is hard and dense. As such, it is naturally scratch, etch and stain resistant. That makes it suitable for use in kitchens, bathrooms, wet and dry locations. Granite is stable and not overly sensitive to heat and that makes it suitable for fireplace applications.

Marble is soft and vulnerable to scratching, staining and etching and is most suitable for use in bathrooms. It can be used in kitchens but extra care should be taken to maintain its appearance.

Quartz is manmade from natural minerals including quartz plus resins and pigments. It is very hard and both stain, etch and scratch resistant. It is vulnerable to heat damage as is not recommend for fireplace applications

Quartzite is a natural stone that is very hard and therefore scratch and stain resistant. It can be used anywhere granite is used.

Soapstone is softer than marble and can scratch easily, but can also be sanded and repaired with no special tools or skills. Soapstone is very heavy and dense and completely non-porous therefore very stain resistant and handles heat like no other stone so it is suitable in kitchens, baths, fireplace and both wet and dry locations.

Slate is harder than marble and soapstone and almost non-porous but NOT recommended for wet locations as water can get between the layers and cause separation and warpage.

Chipping, All stones can and will chip if impacted hard enough. The really hard stones are actually more prone to chipping as the material is so hard it is brittle and may chip. Chipping is most evident around a sink.

Competitors will claim that certain stones are quartzites to aid them in sales. The stones are actually marble or dolomite, pretending they are quartzite makes easier sales. While they are beautiful, they are very vulnerable to etching. Test a sample for yourself using a few drops of lemon juice. If the surface etches........You know it contains calcite and is not going to perform like a granite or quartzite at all.
