Every home has a kitchen sink which plays an important role in the day to day preparation of food as well as washing of dishes. Despite the fact that a kitchen sink is necessary for your daily living you are likely to assume it doesn’t need to be cleaned. Most people just spray down their kitchen sink once in a while. If you didn’t know, there is a detailed process for cleaning your sink and disposal.
Let’s first address the reason why cleaning your kitchen sink and disposal should be on your priority list. Washing dishes everyday on you sink leaves food scraps, odors, and germs on the spot. On the other hand, garbage disposals tend to clean themselves but you still have to provide some care. The fact that you can’t see the grime and germs with your naked eyes doesn’t disapprove their presence.
Your health and that of your family is a priority. Kitchen sinks and disposals are usually used daily and if not deeply cleaned they are likely to pose a health risk to those living in your home. Ensure your kitchen sink and disposal are clean and free from debris and germs.
How should I clean My Kitchen Sink?
One simple to clean your kitchen sink is by allowing water to run down it several times a day. Although this won’t remove the bacteria and germs it will wash away any particles sitting on the sink. You should, however, sanitize it to get rid of any grime.
A deep clean of your sink requires the following materials: baking soda, white vinegar, dishwashing soap (liquid), soft sponge, and an old toothbrush.
- The first step is to wipe and rinse your kitchen sink before scattering baking soda over its surface. Work the baking soda into a paste and rinse the sink thoroughly.
- Saturate paper towels with distilled white vinegar and line them up on the sink for about twenty minutes before disposing them.
- Using warm soapy water, rinse your kitchen sink. Finally, wipe the handles and faucets using a soapy water (mild) and clean the hard to reach sections using an old toothbrush.
Wiping down a kitchen sink is something everyone can do but these steps can help you to get rid of bacteria and germs. These steps can be accomplished within a short time and is a painless process.
