Today I took one look at my sink and knew.. the day had come to make it new again.
When I was little I complained (and loudly!) about doing chores. I had no idea that there were chores on top of chores. In fact when I took this picture I had just finished washing the sink after doing the dishes! It took me a few years to realize that doing the dishes and doing the laundry simply weren't enough! It took the occasional maintenance chore to keep my appliances functioning as they did when I first became a steward of them. So when you see a shiny metal sink, I see obnoxious brown lines. When you see a faucet.. I see the creases that should sparkle!
Step one? Break out the ingredients. All you need is baking soda, vinegar, and something to scrub with. I use my trusty cleaning toothbrush!
After the time consuming part it all looks sort of brown and mushy. Parts of it might already be dry again! That's okay. The idea is to use baking soda (a natural and gentle abrasive) to get all the ugly parts off which already happened.
Dry off your beautiful sink with a towel and marvel at the shining beauty. I could even make out the name of the faucet brand again!
Do you have another baking soda application you love to use? I would love to hear about it, and potentially feature it!
