Restoring Luster to an Enameled Sink
- Enameled surfaces can lose the original luster with improper care and cleaning. Abrasive cleaners are not recommended.

Discoloration from Rubber Mats
- Rubber dish mats are not recommended in KOHLER® sinks.
- Bacteria can grow under the mats and permanently discolor the enamel.
- Discoloration from rubber mats is not covered under the manufacturer's defect warranty.
Black Spots In Enamel
- Black spots in the finish of enameled products are referred to as "carbon spots."
- The carbon spots are the result of dust particles that get burned into the finish during the enamel firing process.
- Carbons spots are a normal part of the manufacturing process. Typically, the spots are small and minimal, however the product should be inspected prior to installation.
Removing Metal (Pot) Marks
- Pot marks are caused by metal objects (most commonly aluminum cookware) striking the enameled surface and are not a manufacturing defect.
- Pots, pans, and utensils may leave the metal marks on sink surfaces because the thick layer of fire-polished enameled is harder than cookware.
- The pot marks look like scratches, but they do not penetrate the enameled surface.
- To clean, apply a small amount of KOHLER Cast Iron Cleaner (K-23725) to the marks. Use a soft cloth or cork to gently rub the marks away.
