Clean Your Kitchen Sink

1. For stainless steel and porcelain sinks. Wet the entire surface of your sink with warm water. Sprinkle baking soda onto the sink and rub it in with a soft cloth or sponge until it forms a paste. The alkali nature of baking soda will remove stains, soap scum and bits of food. Plus, it will leave your sink with a nice shine!

2. Scoop up some of the paste with an old toothbrush and scrub it into the caulk seal around your sink, the faucet and the underside of the rubber drain flaps (this area can get very dirty, so do it last). Rinse the toothbrush frequently and add more baking soda as necessary.
