When it comes to kitchen sink cleanliness is the first thing you should think about. You should regularly clean your kitchen sink, not just rinse it out until it appears clean. Rinsing won’t help you get rid of germs and bacteria. We want to share a secret to clean, sanitized and gleaming kitchen sink. We will show you how to make your sink super clean without using harmful chemicals or cleaners. You will need only natural products and some other stuff. So, you should equip yourself with the following: liquid dishwashing soap, distilled white vinegar, rock salt, baking soda, lemon or lime, ice, toothbrush, nylon or soft sponge, old rag.
For daily cleaning, you can use a mild soap and soft rag or nylon sponge to wipe it clean. Yo should avoid using abrasive sponges as they can alter the sink’s finish. Also, an all-purpose or glass cleaner should also be avoided, but can be used in a pinch. After cleaning, rinse and wipe the sink dry with a soft towel or rag.
It’s important to rinse out your sink after each use. The acid and salt in food can damage the finish of your stainless steel sink. Rinse liquids and food every time you put glasses or plates in the sink. Rinse out your sink, then sprinkle baking soda onto the surface. Work the baking soda into a paste and thoroughly rinse.

After finishing the last step, line the entire sink with paper towels soaked in white vinegar. Allow it to sit for a while and then dispose of the paper towels. Saturate a nylon sponge with soapy water and clean the sink. Then, thoroughly rinse it.
If you have a sink with a garbage disposal, you will need to make some mixture to thoroughly clean it. First, pour one half cup of baking soda down the kitchen drain. Then, add one cup of white vinegar on top of the baking soda. Don’t be afraid of the noise a mixture can produce. Boil a kettle of hot water. Then just pour it down the drain. If you want to get rid of the grime and debris from the grinding elements, fill the drain with 2-3 cups of ice. Take a rock salt and pour a cup of it over the ice cubes. Run the cold water and turn on the garbage disposal until the ice is gone.
With the water on and garbage disposal running, cut a lime or lemon in half and add the fruit to the disposal. This will help you clean the drain and at the same time make it smell nice.
Wipe the faucets and handles with a mild soapy solution. If spots remain, you can use a cloth soaked in white vinegar. Once you’re finished cleaning, thoroughly rinse the sink and dry it with a soft rag. Now your sink is sparkling clean!
