We’ve got one and we live in a hard water area so it ends up looking awful. The best solution I’ve found is ordinary kitchen cleaner, dry it and then go over the whole lot with oil (the spray olive oil is perfect) and wipe with kitchen roll.

Is it granite or composite? How is it both aren’t they different things or am I being dim?
We have black granite work tops and I use Method granite cleaner and an E-Cloth to dry/polish it. Not sure if that’s or any use to you but it makes our granite so shiny I can see my face in it 😬

Sounds like the same as ours, which is composite. It’s not like a granite worktop and won’t come up shiny, shiny. It’s a pain in the arse. Oil is definitely the best solution I’ve found after lots of internet searching and trial and error. There’s also some really good cleaning stuff called Bar Keeper’s Friend (you can get it in John Lewis but not sure where else stocks it) but you’ll still need to oil afterwards as it’ll leave a smoky residue.

have you tried a product called Barkeeper's Friend? We have just got a lovely pale marble look quartz worktop and it works on getting stains out of that.

Not completely sure what you've got but we have black composite worksurfaces. Vinegar transforms them. Although you need to wipe it dry to remove the white marks.

What happens if you leave limescale remover on it overnight.

Actually looking at the picture I'd say vinegar would lift that. But ecover limescale remover overnight if you want to go hard.

Is it a BLANCO siligranit sink? The Blanco web site might have suggestions and recommendations.

We have black granite surrounding our stainless steel sink....it became covered with limescale...and I was recommended to use this from Lakeland.

Amazing results...you just scrape away, it doesn't damage the granite, and gradually the limescale disappears. It cleans hobs too...a great product!
