Corian worktops require minimal care and maintenance but should you encounter any problems there are some guidelines below to help you keep your Corian worktops in tip top condition.
On installation, Corian worktops will have an overall satin sheen finish. However, as you use it, Corian
eventually acquires a smoother, more silken finish. To ensure that this luster develops evenly, consult
our cleaning guidelines below. You’ll be pleased to see how Corian maintains its beauty over time.
Day to day Corian worktop cleaning
Although liquids cannot penetrate Corian worktops, it is best to wipe up spills as they occur. Just use a
damp microfibre cloth with a standard household kitchen spray, such as Cif or Mr.Muscle. Always
clean using a circular motion. If a stain needs more attention, refer to the cleaning methods below.
Clean your Corian sink once a week.
Remove all the fat and oil residues of normal food preparation from the sink, using a detergent or a
hard-surface cleaner. Use a spray with 3/4 of liquid household bleach and 1/4 water to spray the sink
and leave a few hours or overnight. The exposure time should be
limited to 16hrs. In the morning, rinse or clean with a damp cloth. The sink should then be beautifully
clean, with very little effort.
How to care for your Corian worktops if you live in a hard water area
If you live in a hard water area, & are experiencing problems with stain removal, apply Viakal ‘gel’ over the area, leave for 2-4 minutes, then remove with a damp microfibre cloth. Using a second clean microfibre cloth, rinse the area thoroughly with water.

Other considerations when looking after your Corian worktops.
- Always use a heat protection pad, trivet (with rubber feet) or protective sink mat for hot
cookware, or leave cookware to cool on the hob first.
Never put hot pans, particularly cast iron, directly on Corian worktops top or in a sink. Such heat
can damage any surface!
- Pouring boiling liquids directly into sinks without turning on the cold tap may damage your
- Always use the correct size pan on the burner and place it centrally.
An overhanging pan scorches surrounding surfaces.
Like all materials DuPontTM Corian® will develop slight abrasion marks in normal daily use:
- Never cut or chop on Corian® - it will score the work surface! Use a chopping board instead.
- Dark, heavily pigmented colours will show scratches, dust and ordinary wear and tear more
readily than lighter, textured colours.
Accidental spills of strong chemicals (e.g. paint stripper, brush cleaners, metal cleaners, oven
cleaners, cleaners containing methylene chloride, acid drain cleaners, acetone based nail
varnish removers etc.) should be flushed promptly with plenty of soapy water to avoid damaging
worktops! For nail varnish spills, non-acetone based remover can be used, and then flushed with
water. Undetected or prolonged exposure to chemicals may damage the surface.
