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.
