Porcelain sinks provide an old-fashioned elegance to any bathroom. Although a white glazed exterior is both classic and chic, we also provide a variety of styles and colors to suit your needs.
GENERAL CLEANING AND CARE
Routine cleaning: Cover your sink with a mild chlorine bleach cleaner. With a soft sponge, scrub around your entire sink in a circular motion. Rinse immediately with pure water, then dry.
Sanitizing: Mix a solution from 1 part bleach and 3 parts water. Let solution soak in sink for 30 minutes to an hour. Drain solution, rinse well with pure water, then dry.
Scuffing: Mix baking soda with water until you have a paste-like consistency. With a soft sponge, rub paste on scuffs until they are no longer visible. Rinse thoroughly with water, then dry.
Shine: Pour some vinegar straight from the bottle into the sink bowl. With a nylon brush, scrub your sink thoroughly. Rinse away vinegar smell with pure water, then dry.
René porcelain sinks are made from triple-glazed vitreous china, which creates the strongest porcelain sink possible. The triple-glazing technique makes our sinks more durable, stain-resistant, and easy to clean than sinks made from fine china. We also use a finer grade of paint to ensure that our white, black, and bisque-colored sinks are uniform in gloss and appearance.
All of our porcelain sinks are covered by a limited lifetime warranty.
