The Way to Scour a Sink

You may enhance the appearance of your kitchen quickly before it rains by minding the sink. Sinks include a ceramic or stainless steel coating. Coffee, tea, tomato juice and food residue can leave behind stains on ceramic, while stainless is prone to discoloration from food residue and water bites. Both ceramic and sinks can scratch easily when cleaned using substances, which destroys the end. Mild abrasives which don’t scrape are required by proper scouring but still cut through the dirt.

Wet the inside of the sink with warm tap water. Wipe any dirt or dirt with a cleaning rag that is moistened.

Sprinkle baking soda or some gentle scouring powder on the cleaning rag that is moistened. Avoid highly abrasive scouring powders and cable scrubbers, because these can scratch the surface of metal and porcelain sinks.

Scrub the sink using the rag. Insert pop or scouring powder as necessary until the sink surface is scoured.

Apply baking soda or scouring powder on stains, such as tea or coffee stains. Moisten the rag and scrub the stains a second time.

Rinse out the sink with water. If they aren’t totally rinsed away baking soda and scouring powder leave behind a white haze.
