I didn’t realize how much of a difference this 30 minute sink treatment would be, so I sadly have no pictures to share with you, but it is so amazing, you will forgive me.
You will need:
- Baking Soda
- White Vinegar
- Scrubbing Brush
- A Dirty Sink
We have a large white porcelain kitchen sink. It gets pretty dirty, what with the food and dishes and occasional paint brush. We wipe it out with an all-purpose kitchen cleaner every once in a while, but I haven’t really scrubbed it in a long time. The other day, it happened to be totally empty, so I thought I’d clean it. I threw in a generous sprinkling of baking soda across the bottom, and let it sit while I vacuumed downstairs, so about 20 minutes. Then, I dumped in a little vinegar (maybe a tablespoon at a time?) and let it fizz. Once it had stopped bubbling, I let the faucet run for a few seconds, just enough to make a runny paste in the bottom. Then, I scrubbed it until the paste was a really gross looking color, followed by a long rinse, followed by a long gaze of admiration at the results. The last step in the process was telling The Husband to come admire my handiwork. (An important step, if you ask me.)
It seriously looks so nice that I’m planning to bathe my child in it for a bathtime photo shoot! I love when natural pantry ingredients surprise me.
