How to clean the sink with two simple ingredients: shine like new
The sink should be cleaned regularly, otherwise limescale, grease or rust will settle on the surface. Limescale is associated with water hardness. Even special filters do not always help to eliminate the problem.
While darker sinks are particularly affected by limescale, lighter-coloured sinks can turn yellow or discolour over time when they come into contact with certain foods, such as coffee or beetroot. An interesting life hack is gaining popularity online. Liv Holistic (@livholistic) shared on TikTok how to clean a sink with two simple ingredients.
Most often, stainless steel is used in the production of sinks. This is a durable and strong material, which, unfortunately, is also prone to the formation of deposits and scum.
Liv advises taking only two ingredients - lemon and baking soda. This is a great alternative to aggressive chemicals that can damage the surface.
You need to wipe the sink area to get brilliant results.
Step 1. Take a large lemon and cut it in half.
Step 2. Sprinkle baking soda on one half of the lemon and wipe the sink with it.
Step 3. Rinse the sink from abrasive particles and acids with a sponge and cold water.
A nice bonus is that lemon and baking soda will act as effective neutralisers of unpleasant odours. This life hack can be used for kitchen sinks and bathroom fixtures.
By the way, vinegar will help clean enamelled sinks from lime and dirt. Apply water and vinegar to a sponge or cloth, wipe the surface with the solution and leave it for 10 minutes. After that, the vinegar should be washed off with water.
Experts also recommend treating surfaces with a mixture of ammonia and hydrogen peroxide in a 2:1 ratio. Read more about this life hack in the article.
