How to Remove Scratches from Your Stainless Steel Sink


According to research conducted by, Australians love to redecorate their homes – over and over again. Consider the following:

  • 12% renovate their homes every month!
  • 30% engage in some type of renovation or decorating project every three to six months.
  • One in four Australians plans to update their kitchen within the next 12 months.
  • And, can you guess which room survey responders said was the one in most need of renovation? Right: the kitchen.

If you’re interested in updating the look of your kitchen without spending a lot of money, there are numerous things you can do quite affordably: among them, removing scratches from your stainless steel sink to help it look like new again.

Here’s how:

  1. First, rinse your sink with water. When done, place the stopper in the drain and then fill your sink with warm warm water and dishwasher soap. To protect your hands, wear rubber gloves. Then, grab sponge once the sink is full and wash the surface of your sink while it’s still full.
  2. Once you’re certain the sink is clean, pull out the stopper and let all the soap and water drain. If you find that you missed a spot or two, use the same sponge to clean them up.
  3. Thoroughly dry your sink with a dish towel or rag.
  4. Pour a small amount of a liquid abrasive cleaning product or a specialty stainless steel cleaning product onto soft scouring pad. Be sure the cleaning product is suitable for stainless steel. In a back and forth motion, rub over the scratches until those areas blend in with the sink surface around them. Periodically wipe away the cleaning product residue to measure your progress.
  5. If your sink has a grain, just be sure to rub in the same direction to achieve a completely blended effect.
  6. Once all the scratches have been removed, wash the sink one more time with warm water, liquid dish detergent and a clean sponge. Afterwards, wipe the sink dry.
  7. For added shine, apply a stainless steel sink polish, following the package directions.

Once you get your scratched up sink looking new, you’ll probably have a notion to dress it up even more with a new faucet. Whether it’s that or any other project that involves plumbing, Kalamunda Plumbing is here to help make your kitchen look and function like new. Just as we’ve been doing for area home owners dating back to 1954.

Testimonials What our
Customers Say

I have given Kalamunda plumbing 5 stars but only because I couldn’t give them 6!Kalamunda Plumbing we’re absolutely fantastic! I had a burst pipe somewhere on my property (3000 sqm) leaking at 1L per second. I tried 4 different plumbing companies before coming across Kalamunda plumbing. The first company made me wait two days and then forgot my booking, the next one couldn’t help me for over a week and the last quoted me $1200 for the job and still had to wait three days. I called Kalamunda plumbing and they arrived the very next day. Anthony found the burst pipe within 20 minutes to the exact location, dug down and repaired the leak. The whole job only took 2 hours and was 1/3 of the price I was quoted.They were professional, helpful and friendly. I will now be a customer for life. I have shared my experience with all that I know in my area.I cannot recommend them highly enough. Thank you for everything! When the need arises I will be back!

craig mccullough
We had a large amount of water bubbling up between the pavers down the side of our house. After a quick call around and a few dead ends I got hold of Kalamunda plumbing. They were able to have someone around quickly, dig down and repair the broken water line. Saving me a fortune in wasted water. Highly recommend and definitely will be using for any future plumbing work.
Trent and Barry from Kalamunda Plumbing did an excellent job. As well as fixing the problem in a timely manner, they gave me some good advice on a number of other potential plumbing issues
Roger Barnett
One thing that I really appreciate is a tradesman that arrives when they say they will, especially when you have taken time off work to have your hot water system replaced.Kalamunda Plumbing were on time and I can't believe how quickly the work was done, and at a reasonable price considering that they did an urgent repair for me. Everything was back to normal again so quickly, mess cleaned up and they adjusted the water temperature so that it was not hot enough to scold me.Well done to everyone involved at Kalamunda Plumbing, greatly appreciated.Regards Russell
