How to clean the kitchen sink to a shine: no chemicals needed
Kitchen sinks often get dirty. Food, grease, limescale, soap scum, and food waste accumulate on them.
You should not resort to chemical cleaners because environmentally friendly products will be less harsh, cheaper, and more effective. The Express publication provided more details.
Kitchen sinks can develop an unpleasant odor caused by the decomposition of poorly treated food waste. Laura Harnett, founder of Seep eco-cleaning products, explained how to clean a kitchen sink with natural and affordable detergents.
She suggested using baking soda, which is an ideal cleanser and odor-neutralizer.
Sprinkle baking soda generously over the entire sink. You can sprinkle it with a spoon, or you can just shake the bag. Moisten a sponge and start scrubbing the sink in a circular motion with the soft side. Baking soda is strong enough to remove dirt but also gentle enough not to scratch the sink.
Use white vinegar to rinse the sink. Baking soda combined with white vinegar will foam, creating carbon dioxide. This will effectively remove dirt and grease during cleaning.
Vinegar also naturally disinfects the sink, cleansing it of germs. Be sure to use enough vinegar to dissolve all the baking soda.
Then rinse the sink thoroughly with warm water. Do not allow the baking soda or vinegar to dry on the sink, as this will cause streaks to appear. The warm water will help the baking soda residue dissolve down the drain.
Finally, use a clean, dry cloth to wipe and dry the sink. Then take a lemon, cut it in half, and wipe the sink with one half. This will help maintain the shine longer. Harnett added that the sink should be cleaned about once a month.
