How do I restore my fireclay sink?
Because it’s made of heavy-duty clay and glaze, your fireclay sink is more than capable of withstanding the regular use of such mild abrasives. As a natural alternative, you can also use regular white vinegar to tackle stubborn grime. To do so, simply soak a paper towel in the vinegar and place it on top of the stain.
Can you use magic eraser on fireclay sink?

How do you get scratches out of a white ceramic sink?

How do you clean a stained fireclay sink?
The best way to keep your fireclay sink in great condition is to regularly scrub it down with dish soap and warm water, using a soft sponge.

Can you repair a fireclay sink?

Is cast iron or fireclay better?
The fireclay material is formed when a clay-based ceramic is fired in a kiln at hot temperatures. During this process, a protective glaze is actually fused to the clay, rather than poured on top of it as with cast iron. As a result, fireclay sinks are stronger and more durable.
