Discover the Ultimate Guide to Clean Kitchen Sinks and Drains!
Welcome to our detailed guide on cleaning your kitchen sink and drain. We all know how easy it is to let dishes pile up or leave leftover food scraps in the drain without running the disposal. It's time to show your kitchen sink and drain some love and make it a habit to include in your weekly cleaning routine. Let's begin!
Preparing to Clean
First things first, clear your sink of any food items and dishes. Give it a quick pre-rinse to remove any visible crumbs. This will make the process of cleaning much easier.
Cleaning Different Sink Materials
A. Stainless Steel
Stainless steel is tougher than most sink materials. You should avoid using acidic foods, bleach, and abrasive scrubbers since they can alter the stainless steel’s finish. Start by coating the wet sink in baking soda and add a few drops of dish soap. Then, add hot water to your sponge and begin scrubbing the sides of the basin, working your way down and pushing any grime directly into the drain. Rinse with clean water and dry with a microfiber cloth.
B. White Sink
White kitchen sinks are susceptible to stains and rust. Use hydrogen peroxide and baking soda to remove the stains and restore your sink to its original state. Pat the sink until it's slightly damp, sprinkle baking soda onto the basin until it's fully covered, add a few drops of hydrogen peroxide and use a sponge or brush to scrub thoroughly. Rinse and dry with a soft cloth.
C. Porcelain Sink
Porcelain sinks are susceptible to rust and stains. Sprinkle salt on a lemon half and use it to scrub directly on the rust until it's gone. Wash with warm soapy water and dry with a microfiber cloth.
Cleaning Faucets and Handles
Using soapy water, you can clean all types of faucet and handle materials. Use a sponge or brush to wipe them down and a toothbrush for those hard-to-reach areas. If you still see white spots after your scrub, that's lime buildup from the minerals in your tap water. Adding a spoonful of vinegar to the soapy water mixture and doing one final scrub should do the trick.
Cleaning Kitchen Sink Drain
Cleaning your kitchen sink drain helps eliminate unwanted odors. Learn how to clean your sink drain with baking soda and vinegar. Pour baking soda then white vinegar into the drain and wait for 15 minutes before washing it away with boiling hot water to remove any remaining residue.
Fill your garbage disposal with a few lemon wedges, salt, and ice cubes. Then turn on your garbage disposal while running cold water until the ice is gone. The salt scrubs the blades, and the ice helps to knock off any remaining grime or gunk. Coarse salt works best, so look to rock or sea salt if you have either on hand. The lemon? That's to help deodorize and create a fresh-smelling scent.
