(Well, actually, only the kitchen sink…) The kitchen sink is one of the dirtiest places in your home, next to your kitchen sponge, cutting boards, and remote controls. As you might guess, it should be given a good cleaning often. If you are going to spend any amount of your precious time cleaning, you should be doing it in the most efficient and quickest way possible, so read on.
Before you begin cleaning, make sure your area is free of dishes, so go ahead and put those in the dishwasher. Once you have a clear workspace, clean above the rim of the sink with Red Juice and a cloth – all except in the bowl of the sink itself. Every time you clean, use your toothbrush around the faucets and where the sink meets the counter. It makes a vast difference and it takes only a few seconds. Now use a powdered cleanser in the bowl of the sink. (Use powdered cleanser below the rim only, or you’ll spend too much time rinsing.) Wet the inside of the sink. Sprinkle cleanser lightly on the bottom of the sink. Use your white pad to agitate the cleanser around the bottom and sides of the sink. Then use your toothbrush to clean the little groove around the drain or garbage-disposal opening.
Rinse the sink thoroughly to remove the cleanser. Use your fingers to feel the sink bottom to be sure all the cleanser is removed. Now dry the faucet spigot and handles with a very dry cloth so they will shine nicely.
