How To Clean Your Stainless Steel Kitchen Sink

Have you looked closely at your kitchen sink lately? I did this weekend, and was mortified. So, I decided to give it a thorough cleaning. I used one of my favorite products and a little elbow grease to get my sink all sparkly clean in minutes! #cleaningtricks

    Your food prep area's need BLEACH. Dilute it 1:10 H20 for counters, but use in sink full strength. Use Bar Keeper's to scrub it but use bleach between for sanitizing. That is one germ infested place in a home, it's sinks. Free R.N., advice ;-)

    Just make sure that if you're using bleach that you do NOT have a septic system, and if you're using it to sanitize, that it's fresh (it loses it's effectiveness within weeks), that you've cleaned the surface first (you can't sanitize a dirty surface)

    White vinegar (a mild acid) is the best for removing mineral buildup around faucets. Foll a paper towel and fit it around the faucet base. Pour vinegar in towel and let sit for a couple hours. I always do my kitchen overnight. In the morning all the

    Bleach in septic tanks will kill all the beneficial bacteria that break down waste. Rid-x will add it back and my septic tank guy said he puts a block of yeast in his that does the same thing (I have never tried yeast). He gets it at Sam's club. Also, I

    After cleaning my sink I put a drop of olive oil in it and use a paper towel to rub it all around the sink. Helps keep away water spots. :)

    We don't use bleach at all in our household! I love this stuff, though.
