Do you want to Keep Your Sinks Looking New?  Need to Restore Older Sinks to their former glory? 

Copper or brass sinks are gorgeous but can be frustrating to keep up. Stainless steel can also discolor and spot. Water spots can be a real problem and take away from the beauty of the metal. Polishing every time you use the sink is not a good option. Sinks with patinas look great but any acid will spot the dark copper and create bright spots that don't blend in.

ProtectaClear® + Microban® Antimicrobial = CrobialCoat®

ProtectaClear® has been used for years to protect sinks and other metals but now is available with a strong antimicrobial to help protect from bacteria that cause stains and odors.  CrobialCoat® is highly recommended for additional protection from microbes and bacteria that can build up on kitchen and bath sinks. Not only will your sinks look new, they will also be protected from odor-causing bacteria and germs.

How to Clean & Seal Your New Sink or Sinks with Patina

For new sinks or sinks with patina. Here are the steps to protect the finish of your sink, stop fingerprints and tarnish and keep them looking new.  

  1. Wash the sink with a few drops of dish soap to make sure it is clean. 

  2. Rinse with plain water and dry to avoid waterspots.

  3. Wipe with a clean solvent like denatured alcohol.

  4. Apply 2 to 4 coats of CrobialCoat with at least an hour between coats. Make sure the first coat is completely dry before applying the next coat.  Do not apply pressure while applying the coating. Just glide it on with no pressure. 

  5. CrobialCoat will blend to itself.  When applying subsequent coats, glide the coating on quickly and do not wipe hard or keep messing with it.  This can disturb the first coat. 

  6. The coating is delicate until it is completely cured.  It is a good idea to dry out the sink after use with a soft cloth and do not allow water to sit on the sink until it is completely cured.

  1. Polish the sink with copper polish to the desired sheen.

The solvents in the coating will react with the acid and darken the metal.  You can use EZ-Prep Neutralizer or baking soda to neutralize the acid. 

  3. If Midas Touch is used, there is NO need to neutralize.  Wash off the residue with a couple of drops of dish soap and water. 

  4. Rinse with plain water and dry with a soft cloth.   

  5. Wipe with a clean solvent like denatured alcohol.

  6. Apply 2 to 4 coats of CrobialCoat with at least an hour between coats. Make sure the first coat is completely dry before applying the next coat.  Do not apply pressure while applying the coating. Just glide it on with no pressure.

For sinks that have Heavy tarnish or that have an intricate design. Here are the steps to clean off heavy tarnish,  polish your sink, stop fingerprints and tarnish and keep them looking new.  

  1. For heavy tarnish or to remove old patina, use HD Copper Cleaning Gel.  The gel will stick to the sides of a sink to allow it to work, even on vertical surfaces.  The Gel will also get into intricate designs to clean the tarnish.  See the video to see how it works.  

  2. Allow the gel to work.  Scrub in a small area with the gray Prep Pad (included with the kit) to see if the tarnish is coming up.  If not, allow more time for the gel to work. 

  3. Once the tarnish has "melted",  remove the excess with paper towels or wash down the sink.  The gel is made from natural ingredients that will not harm pipes or the environment. 

  4. Make sure most of the heavy oxidation is removed.  If not, apply more gel and allow it to continue to work.

  5. Polish the sink with the Midas Touch polish to the desired sheen.   

  6. Midas Touch Polish in the kit does not contain acid however the HD Gel is acidic.  The metal will need to be neutralized.   The solvents in the coating will react with the acid and darken the metal.  You can use EZ-Prep Neutralizer or baking soda to neutralize the acid.  EZ-Prep is included with your kit.  Wash down the metal with the EZ-Prep.  

  7. Rinse well with plain water and dry with a soft cloth.   

  8. Wipe with a clean solvent like denatured alcohol.

  9. Apply 2 to 4 coats of CrobialCoat with at least an hour between coats. Make sure the first coat is completely dry before applying the next coat.  Do not apply pressure while applying the coating. Just glide it on with no pressure. 

  10. CrobialCoat will blend to itself.  When applying subsequent coats, glide the coating on quickly and do not wipe hard or keep messing with it.  This can disturb the first coat. 

  11. The coating is delicate until it is completely cured.  It is a good idea to dry out the sink after use with a soft cloth and do not allow water to sit on the sink until it is completely cured.

Tips and Tricks

  • Use a hairdryer to ensure the sink is really dry before coating. Water can accumulate by the drain or by the faucets.  

  • If the Copper Cleaning Gel starts to dry, agitate with some water.  You can use the Prep Pad or a brush.

  • Use a hairdryer to help the coating cure faster.  CrobialCoat will harden as it cures. Under normal circumstances, with normal temperature and humidity, the coating will be cured in 4 to 5 days.  Deep sinks can take a little longer.  The cure time can be sped up with the use of heaters or fans.   Until the coating is completely cured, it is best to wipe up any sitting water with a soft cloth.  

  • You can also coat your faucets to protect them from bacteria buildup.  Keep them 99% cleaner as well

  • Keep any left-over coating for future use or for sink maintenance.  Wipe the threads before closing so the lid is easier to remove later.
