Faucets on sinks are of four types: cartridge, compression, ball, and ceramic disk. Compression faucets have rubber washers which secure the valve. Since these washers wear out easily, they need to be replaced. All the other types do not have rubber washers, but are likely to develop leaks after being used for a while. You will have to either replace the entire assembly or just the O-ring in such cases.
Wearing protective gloves is advisable before you begin cleaning a kitchen sink. Other supplies that you will require include white vinegar solution, a soft bristle brush, sponges and clean kitchen towels. In case you are using a commercial cleansing agent, do not apply it directly. Instead, conduct a spot test to see if it is safe for the porcelain sink or not. If yes, then only proceed for the further cleaning process.
For the porcelain material, occasional polishing is suggested to preserve the original glaze. In home supply centers, you will get porcelain gels, specially formulated for this purpose. Purchase a superior quality product and read the usage instructions. You will need to clean the sink first, remove stains (if any) and dab it dry with clean towels prior to applying the gel. You can even use a soft cloth dampened with baby oil for polishing porcelain sink.
For more heavy builds, clean the kitchen sink with baking soda. Pour 1 teaspoon of it down the drain and then cup of lemon juice. Alternately, vinegar can also be used. Let this solution sit for 30 minutes. After which, run hot water through the sink.
