Use: A few drops or a spray of all-purpose cleanser.
Tools: A damp sponge, cloth, or soft nylon pad or brush.
Tips: Occasionally wipe matte-finish sinks with a solution of one teaspoon nonchlorine bleach and one quart hot water.
Tough tains: Rub matte finishes with a dampened green Scotch-Brite pad and baking soda. For satin finishes, use a white Scotch-Brite pad and undiluted all-purpose cleanser. For high-gloss finishes, use a one-part-vinegar to one-part-warm-water solution and a soft cloth.
