Feature This... Staging Tip No. 42,271 - Un-Staining the Stainless Steel Sink

By
Home Stager with FEATURE THIS... Real Estate Staging & Interior Decor

 

Stainless Steel sinks are beautiful to look at in the showroom, but very hard to keep beautiful in the home.

My default plan when confronted by a stained, scratched sink of this type has been to attack it with a soft cloth loaded with a thick paste mixture of baking soda and a little bleach and a whole lot of rubbing, followed by a coat of Pledge, and death threats to all who dared to even consider using the sink after my efforts.

I may have inhaled too much bleach, because I just installed a Franke Stainless Steel Sink in my own kitchen. But I have a better plan now thanks to this product, which I recently used and am blown away with the results! Check it out:

It is going in my staging kit.
It is an absolute must-have!

Hi Michelle,

It's $49. for the kit, which will fix 20 scratches. However, I use it to polish the whole sink for staging purposes so it looks new. I think I estimate will get about 6 sink polishings for this price, making it less than $15 bucks per sink.

This sink absolutely needed replacement, and the surface was practically destroyed due to previous poor cleaning practices with the wrong products. I used the product very sparingly, because I was given a small amount by a friend to try. It was an amazing result in comparison to the original condition.

As soon as I stop getting annoying & typical  the  "bad gateway" response  from the active rain servers, I will post a better angle  of the above picture of the "after."
