Kitchen sinks are parts of our homes which we very rarely clean. We don’t maintain them, either. We only use them, and that is why they become dirty and ugly. I hate when my kitchen sink is covered with soap scum stains and spots from food. And I won’t even mention how I feel when it starts smelling bad.
A kitchen sink needs a lot of maintenance because it is one of the biggest nests of bacteria and germs in every home. You have to take care of it, so to keep diseases away from your place. How to do that?
Here are a few tips from an end of tenancy cleaning London expert on how to keep your kitchen sink spotless:
- First of all, never leave dirty dishes in it for too long. I personally recommend that you wash your plates, glasses, cups and other utensils as soon as you finish using them. Otherwise, they will leave stains and bad odours in your sink.
- Whenever you start washing your dishes, wipe your kitchen sink with a damp sponge. If you want you can use some of the dish-washing detergent to wash the sink. Blot it with a cloth in the end, so that no water marks remain in it.
- If dirt has built up in your kitchen sink, sprinkle a mixture of baking soda and salt all over it, and rub with a sponge soaked with white vinegar. This method removes all kinds of spots and grime from sinks. Wipe with a cloth in the end and spray the sink with hot white vinegar to disinfect it.
- Give the faucet a good wipe with a solution of white vinegar and rubbing alcohol, too, to bring back its shine.
It is not that hard to maintain a sink, is it? Don’t skip this chore, then!
