Kitchen sinks are a common object that needs cleaning in our homes, so I want to share some cleaning tips with you.
The kitchen is the heart of the home, the kitchen sink is the center of your kitchen, if not literally, at least figuratively. Much of the activity of food preparation centers around this area, and as such, it can get quite dirty and messy.
For daily sink care, each night after dinner, you should completely empty your sink of dirty dishes, and pots and pans and either load the dishwasher or handwash these items. There should be nothing in it as you begin scrubbing your sink. Remember to clean items that you keep in or around your sink, too. Move your sponge holder and drain stopper to get a more thorough clean.
Wash down the entire surface area of your sink. Use a gentle soap, soft cloth, and warm water to clean the faucets, drain, and outer rim. Do this every time you use the sink, which includes after preparing meals or washing dishes. In addition, make sure to remove all food scraps and rinse the sink drain out thoroughly, which will help reduce odors.
Run hot tap water into the drain. This will help eliminate bad odor and soften any gooey materials that may threaten to clog the drain. Alternatively, boil a pot of water and pour that down, as it will help loosen any caked-on gunk in your drain. Be sure to wet down the entire sink through this process. Do this several times a week.
Create a blend of baking soda and lemon juice for the surface. Mix 1 teaspoon of baking soda to 1/4 cup of lemon juice and pour it over the surface of your sink. Let this mixture stand for approximately 10 minutes before rinsing it away with hot water. Do this to your sink at least once a week. Baking soda is a natural cleaning agent that breaks down dirt and grease, so feel free to sprinkle it on cracks and harder-to-hit places, such as around the faucet and handles, and scrub at it with a toothbrush.
Therefore, your sink needs to be cleaned daily. Fortunately, this daily cleaning process is quite simple and doesn't take much extra time at all after you remove all the dirty dishes from it. Once the sink is clear cleaning your sink nightly is as easy as wiping it out with your dishrag, soaked in a mixture of warm water and a small amount of dish soap.
In addition, while there are differences in the way you should deep clean a stainless steel sink and a porcelain sink, the daily cleaning of both types of sinks is pretty much the same.
