How to care for your Corian worktops


So you’ve had your new kitchen installed along with brand new Corian worktops and a Corian kitchen sink.

Corian is extremely versatile, made of acrylic polymer and alumina trihydrate. Once installed, your Corian worktop and sink will have a satin sheen finish.However, as it is used over time, Corian will acquire a smoother, more silken finish.

Corian requires minimal maintenance however; you can help maintain its beauty by following our handy guide on how to care for your Corian worktops below:

Cleaning your Corian

It is advised to wipe up any spills on your Corian worktop as soon as they occur using a microfibre cloth and standard ammonia based hard surface cleaner. If a stain requires further attention, sprinkle a gentle abrasive powder on the damp surface and leave it for 3-4 minutes before using a soft cloth and rubbing it in a circular motion.

Important Corian advice for worktops

  • Use a heat protection pad or incorporate hob-bars in your kitchen design for hot cookware.
  • Use the correct size pan for the burner you have. Overhanging pans can scorch surrounding surfaces.
  • Using a butcher’s block or chopping board is recommended when chopping food.
  • Use soapy water to flush out any strong chemical spills – this will help prevent damage. Use a non-acetone based remover for nail varnish spills.

Cleaning your Corian sink

Prepare your sink by removing all fat and oil residues of food from the sink using a standard hard surface cleaner. Use a spray made up of ¾ household bleach and ¼ water to spray into the sink – leave over night (exposure time should be limited to 16hrs). Rinse the sink and clean with a damp cloth.

Important Corian advice for sinks

  • Add a few inches of cold water in the sink before directly adding a hot pan into it.
  • Avoid pouring boiling liquids directly into sinks without turning on the cold-water tap as well.
  • Use soapy water to flush out any strong chemical spills – this will help prevent damage. Use a non-acetone based remover for nail varnish spills.

Corian is the ideal material for kitchen worktops because it is a solid surface, it is easy to clean and is not affected by chemical cleaners. Also, the beauty of Corian is that after years of use – yours worktop and sink will still look great.
