Genius One-Ingredient Solution To Make Your Sink Look Like New
I’ve always wanted my kitchen sink to be spotless and shiny. When I see those annoying hard water stains on the sink, around the faucet and just everywhere, that’s the thing that annoys me the most. From time to time I try to clean the sink and not allow hard water buildup, but the truth is that it’s very difficult to always find the time. Those who can, probably will say you shouldn’t have brought your sink to this condition in the first place, but when you don’t have the time and the water quality in your area is as it is, there’s really not much to do. You clean it when you have the time and it’s usually a long and boring process. Scrubbing and scrubbing with all these chemicals and still you might end up feeling unsatisfied with the results.
You can’t imagine my happiness when I found this one-ingredient recipe from Crouton Crackerjacks which promised to do wonders for my sink and faucet. I was skeptical at first, but it guaranteed to restore the sink in its previous perfect condition so I decided to give it a shot. You’ll be amazed how powerful this homemade cleaner is,just as I was.
For this awesome cleaning trick,all you will need:
- common cheap 5% white vinegar
- an old cloth
Pour the vinegar in a bowl and dip your cloth in it.
Make sure your sink is completely dry for this procedure because if it’s wet the water will dilute the effect of the vinegar. Take your soaked cloth and wrap it around the faucet and around all the spots with hard water build up. You can use multiple cloths and apply them all in the same time or you can use the same just do it gradually, first one part, then the next etc., whichever is more convenient for you.
Make sure that all the parts are covered and pour some more vinegar over the cloth just to be sure that it’s well soaked. Leave the cloth on for one hour or so and then remove it.
Take an old kitchen sponge that’s a bit worn out and use the green part to scrub around the nicksandcracks. You might need to repeat the process once moreif your sink is in real bad shape, just to remove the hardest stains. After you’re finished, dry out the sink and admire its shine. It’s brought your messy sink back to its former sparkling glory.
That’s how easy it is to clean hard water buildup from your faucetand sink. I was skeptical too, believe me, but when you try it you’ll never clean your sink in any other way.
