Looking for an Easy to Clean Basin to Handle Everyday Use?


Consider a fireclay basin, it is a type of ceramic basin that is fired at very high temperatures, resulting in a strong, non-porous finish that resists stains and scratches.
Fine fireclay is a popular material choice for bathroom basins for several reasons:

  1. Durability: Fine fireclay is a very durable material that is resistant to scratches, chips, and stains. It is a long-lasting material that will stand up to the wear and tear of daily use in a bathroom. It is this process that makes it less fragile than standard ceramic, and therefore much more resistant to impact.

    Many imagine a basin in their bathroom will chip or smash easily if an accident happens like if a perfume bottle drops into the basin. Fireclay is not like this, it will absorb the impact, or worst-case scenario it may chip, but Turner Hastings now has a solution for repairing chips in basins, with a quality repair kit made in Germany.

  2. Hygiene: Fine fireclay is a non-porous material that is easy to clean and maintain. It is resistant to bacteria and other microbes, making it a hygienic choice for a bathroom basin. This means that stains and dirt have a hard time penetrating the surface and are more likely to stay on the top layer, making them easier to wipe off.

  3. Style: Fine fireclay basins come in a range of styles and shapes, from traditional to modern, allowing you to choose a basin that suits your personal style and the overall look of your bathroom.

  4. Sustainability: Fine fireclay is an environmentally friendly material that is made from natural clay and minerals. It is a sustainable choice for a bathroom basin that has a low impact on the environment.

To put the cleaning abilities of a Turner Hastings fireclay basin to the test, we conducted a stain test using makeup and spray tan, two common culprits of bathroom stains. We applied a generous amount of each substance to the basin and let it sit for one hour, then tried to wipe it off with a damp cloth.

To our delight, both the makeup and spray tan came off easily, leaving no visible traces or discoloration on the basin. We repeated the test several times with similar results, confirming that a Turner Hastings fireclay basin is indeed easy to clean and resistant to stains.

To keep your fireclay basin in top condition, simply wipe it down with a soft cloth and mild soap and water as needed. Avoid abrasive cleaners, harsh chemicals, and scrubbing pads, as these can damage the surface and dull the finish.

In conclusion, if you're looking for a basin that is easy to clean, durable, and stylish, a fireclay basin is an excellent choice. With its resistance to stains and scratches, you can enjoy a pristine and functional bathroom for years to come.
