2. Baking Soda and Lemon Juice

If you are looking for the best way to clean a sink and to remove any of those tough stains, then this trick is the thing you are looking for.

Firstly, give your sink a quick rinse, removing any food etc.

Sprinkle some baking soda around the whole sink and put some freshly squeezed lemon juice on your sponge. Rub the sponge around the sink in circular motions making sure you are giving your sink a good clean with the baking soda and lemon juice. Add as much lemon juice to the sink as you need to get the baking soda to fizz up to help get the stains out of the sink.

The baking soda is soft and helps to remove the stains in your sink without scratching it, while the lemon juice not only helps the baking soda to remove the stain, but it also assists in making you sink extra light and shiny while helping to remove any horrible odours.

You should start to notice that your sink is looking shiny and bright and that the stains are coming up in the baking soda.

Don’t forget to go over the tap, handles and the drying rack if these are also stained areas that could do with a good clean.

Once you are happy with the result, wash away the baking soda and wash the sponge out, finally spraying some antibacterial spray around the sink to ensure it is sanitised.

3. Vinegar and Baking Soda

If you want to ensure that while you are cleaning your kitchen sink, that you also have a clean kitchen drain, then have you tried clearing a drain with baking soda?

It is a relatively easy trick that many people rely on with just a few simple steps, which helps to improve the flow of water going down your drain, by helping to remove any grease and food sticking to the walls of your kitchen drain.
