Kitchen sinks often get dirty. Food, grease, lime scale, soap scum and food debris accumulate on them.

Kitchen sinks can have a foul odor caused by the rotting of poorly cleaned food waste. Laura Harnett, founder of Seep eco-cleaning products, explained how to clean the kitchen sink with natural and affordable cleaning products.
She suggested using baking soda, which is an ideal cleanser and odor neutralizer.
Generously sprinkle baking soda all over the sink. You can spoon it in with a spoon, or you can just shake the bag. Dampen a sponge and with the soft side, start cleaning the sink in a circular motion. The baking soda is strong enough to remove dirt, but also extremely gentle so as not to scratch the sink.
To rinse the sink, use white vinegar. The baking soda combined with the white vinegar will froth, producing carbon dioxide. This way, you will effectively remove dirt and grease while cleaning.
Vinegar will also naturally sanitize the sink, cleaning it of bacteria. Be sure to use enough vinegar to dissolve all of the baking soda.
Then rinse the sink thoroughly with warm water. Do not let the baking soda or vinegar dry on the sink as it will cause streaks. The warm water will help the baking soda residue dissolve into the drain.
Next, wipe and dry the sink with a clean, dry cloth. After that, take a lemon, cut it in half and wipe the sink with one half. This will help keep the shine for longer. Harnett added that the sink should be cleaned about once a month.
