Sinking Feeling: Cleaning the Sink

, , Comment closed


The sink should always be kept clean. Utensils are usually placed here. It should be free from bacteria and other harmful elements. Besides, a clogged sink would take time and a lot of effort to clean. However, there are some ways on how to make sink cleaning easier.

Some people may think that since soap and water always flow to the sink, it does not need further cleaning. This is wrong. The sink needs to be scrubbed. This is best done using dishwashing liquid and scrub to get rid of build ups from leftover food, grease from cooking oil, and soap residue. It is ideal to use warm water when cleaning the sink.

Do not leave food on the sink for too long especially ones that are known to have high acid levels such as fruits, salad dressings, and vinegar. Create and use a de-clogging mixture of baking soda, salt, and cream of tartar.
