  •   So how should you care for a glass vessel? Glass sinks are tough enough to withstand everyday wear and remain as beautiful as the day they were purchased, when treated correctly. They require no more special treatment than a standard porcelain sink. When water spots occur, a solution of vinegar and water will dissolve the spots. Abrasive bathroom cleaners are not recommended.

  •   One other issue we have witnessed is "thermal shock". Most glass vessels can withstand temperature changes of up to 70 degrees without breakage. However, users should avoid pouring scalding hot water (over 120 degrees) into a glass sink. The immediate temperature changes, or thermal shock, may cause the glass to crack or shatter. Once cracked, the entire glass sink would need to be replaced. When breakage occurs due to thermal shock it is most often prior to installation or right after installation when indoor temperatures are unregulated. This generally happens on a new construction site before the heating is in operation. Be sure your contractor is aware of this.
