Make it a habit to clean the kitchen sink every day. The kitchen sink should be one of the cleanest places at our home. By just rinsing out it doesn’t make it clean and free from germs and bacteria. Here I gathered few tips for cleaning a Stainless Steel Sink.
For everyday cleaning of stainless steel sinks, use a soft washcloth or nonabrasive sponge with a cleaner.
Before the cleaning,
-Wash and remove any dishes inside the sink.
-Remove if there are any solid particles such as vegetable peelings /food residue
To clean with a cleaner,
-Pour a small amount of cleaner to the sponge.
-Wipe the sink in the direction of the polish marks in the sink.
-After that wash the cleanser off
-Using a clean towel or cloth, dry the sink everywhere.
– Make sure to dry the sink completely using the cloth.
Instead of expensive cleaners, there are plenty of inexpensive natural alternatives to use as a sink cleaner.
Vinegar & Baking Soda is excellent match to clean a Stainless Steel Sink.
What you need are:
First mix lime juice (few drops ) and baking soda and make it into a paste. Use this mix on the wet kitchen sink. Using a soft cloth or non-abrasive sponge, wipe the sink and wash away.
Vinegar is an excellent cleaner and it gives a shiny look to the sink. After cleaning the sink, pour some vinegar on a damp cloth or sponge. Then clean the sink as above.
If there are any dark stain/spots, use a paste of cream of tartar and lime on it. Add few drops of lime juice on cream of Tartar & make a paste. Use it on the tough stain and rub it.
Tips & Warnings
-Never use metal scrub brushes to clean the sink surface. These can seriously damage the sink and leave scratches and marks on the metal. Instead, use a soft cloth or non-abrasive sponge to clean stainless steel.
-Don’t leave wet sponges or cloths to sit on the edge of the sink. Use a separate container or plate to keep them, so that the wet material isn’t resting on the steel. This will avoid any rust developing on the sink surface.
