After trying several cleaners full of chemicals, I wasn't happy with the results so I tried using what I had on hand.

Start by giving the whole sink area a heavy spraying of plain white vinegar then sprinkle a heavy coat of baking soda all over. Let this set for at least 5 minutes. Don’t forget to do the faucet area and outside rim of the sink.


After letting the baking soda soak into the vinegar, dampen a dish cloth, or you might prefer a sponge, with just enough water so you can make a paste with your baking soda. Keep scrubbing with the paste solution until you have done all of it.

      Just use the baking soda, I clean my sink with baking soda, have never added the vinegar, will try it. I pour baking soda down all the drains in my house on a regular basis to keep it from smelling.

    I use baby oil on all my stainless appliances...makes them look beautiful. The scent isn't overpowering and doesn't linger for very long.
