Cleaning Tips : The secret to a sparkling sink... Make your old sink look new again! #cleaning

Now, as part of our kitchen makeover we contemplated the idea of replacing our old porcelain sink.

We love our sink. It is huge, it has a lot of character but after having our home rented out for two years

we found it stained BADLY. Sick!

I tried different ways to clean it and I came up with one that brought it back to pure white again.

If your sink is not as bad as mine you may be able to clean it using just one product: Bar Keepers Friend.

You can find it HERE.

If your sink looks really bad and has very messy stains this additional steps will take care of it!

It took me three steps and just a few minutes to complete the process.

 { Come on! Pretend you are excited!}

1

The first thing you want to do is to  wash it with dish soup or dishwasher detergent using a sponge and warm water.

When we moved into our house as you could see the sink was in pretty bad shape so dishwasher detergent worked better for me.

After you are done, rinse it thoroughly.

This is how our sink looked after this step.

A lot better… but far from perfect.

 

2

Spray bleach or a bleach product all over the sink.

Let the bleach sit for a few minutes while you try to wash off the little bit of bleach that went on your shirt.

Darn it!

I hate when that happens.

Gently give a general scrub all over and rinse thoroughly again.

After this step the yellowish color was gone but the black stains were still there.

 3

Apply a small amount of Bar Keepers Friend directly on the areas where you see stains.

I like to scrub those areas in a circular motion…

I don’t know what this product has but you’ll see the stains disappear before your eyes.

 Check this OUT!

look at the before and after pictures…

 Shut The Front Door!

One more!

There you have it… a perfectly clean porcelain sink!

 

Amazing! Huh!

    i recently discovered that the ultra super fine grit sand paper (is usually black/charcoal colored) works wonders! It sands the spots off but didn’t hurt the porcelain. A friend suggested that to me and i was shocked! Plus, no awful bleach/chemical smell
