If you make sure to wipe it dry regularly, it will prevent the forming of hard water deposits. In order to clean stone basins use soapy soft cloth. Make sure to rinse it well and dry after cleaning.
Sealing your stone sink is an important step to maintain it and again avoid any sort of kitchen worktop repairs in future. Stone is a natural material and hence it is porous. This means it will catch stains if any product is left on its surface for a long time. So, sealing is inevitable. There are two options to seal your stone sink 1. Use sealing products ideal for your stone sink, 2. Wax it. If you are using sealing products, it is ideal to apply them once a year. However, if you are planning to wax your sink, do it at least once a month.
Lastly, even after regular cleaning and sealing, if your stone sink develops stains, try cleaning them with a non-abrasive cleaner. You can rely on your dishwashing liquid or a professional stone cleaner for this. Nevertheless, avoid using acidic materials.
