Top Tips For Cleaning Your Kitchen Sink Effectively…

Now, let’s get down to business. Time to get the gloves out and start getting things ready.

Things you will need:
Washing up liquid
Vinegar (apple cider or distilled white should do the trick)

Bicarbonate soda (baking soda)
Cloths and sponges for the cleaning
Scrubber/ brush  
Kitchen roll

PS. You want to limit your use of bleach where food is concerned. Cross contamination would not be healthy and can cause sickness if ingested!

If you have a stainless-steel sink: Rinse initially with warm water then add some baking soda to the sides. Leave for a minute then use a cloth to start cleaning the sides. The soda will turn to a creamy paste and this is what will help combat bacteria, stains and food debris. The soda also helps to leave your sink with a natural sparkle!

Next, get your scrubbing brush (something light like a toothbrush will work without scratching the sink’s surface) and begin to scrub the sides, the faucet and underneath the drain.

Rinse the sink out with water to remove any soda then dry with kitchen towels or a dry cloth.

Next, get the vinegar a decent amount and pour into a bowl. Firstly, dip the cloth or kitchen rolls into the bowl and then lay them over the skin walls. Leave soaking for roughly twenty minutes before getting rid of them. The vinegar is a powerful yet natural disinfectant so works well to replace the bleach.

The final stage is rinsing your sink to remove any baking soda or vinegar with the washing up liquid. After this is complete, you are all set and should have a shiny, clean, bacteria-free sink on your hands!

The baking soda is also great as it can be used down the drain to fight bad odours. That’s the great thing about using home cleaning remedies as they serve several purposes and have little side-effects.

Now you know some effective yet healthy ways of cleaning your kitchen sink, you should have an easier time maintaining it.
