How to Clean a White Corian Kitchen Sink

Monika asked: How do I clean a white Corian kitchen sink? I have had the sink now for 10 years. The sink is a seamless part of the Corian countertop. The sink stains don’t come out with regular kitchen cleaners. I have also used bleach without success. Any recommendations?

To keep Corian looking its best, wipe up spills as soon as they occur and avoid prolonged contact between Corian and anything that might mar or discolor the surface. Even the most diligently cleaned surfaces can still have trouble, though, so whether you have stains or an overall dinginess, you should be quite happy with the boost your Corian will get from this simple cleaning process.

You Will Need:

Steps to Remove the Marks:

  1. Wet the surface to be cleaned
  2. Sprinkle a heavy coat of Bar Keepers Friend over the wet surface.
  3. Use the scouring pad to work it into a paste. Ensure the entire targeted area is coated.
  4. Allow it to sit for a few minutes, but do not allow the paste to dry on the surface.
  5. Rinse the scouring pad and begin working it over the surface.
  6. Once the Corian is clean, rinse thoroughly with water. Ensure all of the residue is gone.
  7. Dry with a towel.

Additional Tips and Advice

  • Soft Scrub is another cleaning product that provides consistent, good results.

    Have you tried baking soda sprinkled on dry, then scrub with rag or sponge?

    Another option is Quick Eraser by ScrubIT; comes in a two pack; sponge is blue on one side, white on the other. Just wet the white side and rub on the stain. It’s remarkable what this product removes! It’s taken fruit stains off my countertop, but won’t work for rust stains very well. I got mine at the dollar store.

    Comet works great! I have the same sink!

  3. Charles says:

    Our Corian double kitchen sink was installed in 1996. One sink is very badly stained and we have tried everything to try and clean it, but without success.
    Can the sink be resurfaced?

  4. Melanie says:

    Yes; a Corian sink can be resurfaced to remove stains. Determine the ideal sandpaper grit for your sink type (matte/satin, semigloss or high-gloss) with the Corian Care article by Kitchen Source.
