Cleaning a Stainless Steel Sink

There are several quick and inexpensive techniques for cleaning a stainless steel sink.

First, using either a damp wash cloth or a scrubbie, scour the sink with baking soda. Baking soda is a natural sanitizing agent. It is a water soluble mineral, and mildly abrasive. It is often recommended for surfaces that you don't want to scratch.

If, your job is tougher than baking soda can manage, mix table salt and vinegar to make a past. Scour away. Vinegar and salt combine to make a "very" mild hydrochloric acid. Additionally, the salt is abrasive and both salt and vinegar are effective sanitizing agents. Cleaning with a sanitizing agent destroys the organic compounds that cause most odors.

If these two don't work, ask yourself "Why am I keeping this sink?" (12/29/2006)

Cleaning a Stainless Steel Sink

Try rubbing your sink with a cut lemon or try using Soft Scrub. I work in the home cleaning business and the Clorox smell helps to disinfect really well. Also, you can put baking soda and vinegar down your drain and flush with hot water about 15 minutes later to make sure the odor is not coming from there. (12/29/2006)
