How to Clean a Franke Composite Kitchen Sink

Franke composite sinks are composed of acrylic and fired granite to provide a textured, durable finish. The nonporous composite material resists stains and bacterial growth, but regular use can cause buildup of hard water minerals, food or detergent residue. Clean your Franke composite sink with a variety of common household cleaners such as dish detergent, vinegar, bleach or oxalic acid powder. With the proper care, you can maintain the look and performance of your Franke composite sink.
