{Pinned} Cleaning a Stainless Steel Sink

I originally pinned a cleaning method here but I used a slightly different method for cleaning my own sink which I did not pin. {smacks head}

Let me show you how grody the sink was.
Nasty nasty!
This is embarrassing!
So moving on..let's get this baby clean!
Sprinkle baking soda over entire sink and spray with white vinegar. Scrub clean with sponge.
I also took out the rack and scrubbed it on both sides.

Rinse everything with a pot of boiling water and wipe dry.

Apply Goo Gone (optional) for any gooey residue, wiping clean.

Use a soft cloth to apply olive oil to the sink and buff dry.
Bask in the reflection of your clean, shiny sink.
So much better!
I really have to remember to do this more often.
What are your tricks and tips for cleaning stainless steel sinks?

This is awesome! I have to try it out tonight! I just cleaned our dishwasher, but I think the sink needs some cleaning too :)

I found an awesome product! I have never had a stainless sink before, we just moved here in Oct., cause I have always hated them but didn't ave a choice here. Anyway, the product is called Barkeepers Friend. It comes in a liquid now which I like better than the powder and it ALONE makes my sink SHINE!!! XO, Pinky

Looks amazing! ... And no need to be embarrassed... Just come over and see my sink! I need to figure out how to clean it... It's not an under mount sink like yours so it collects tonssss of gunk.

Morgan said...

I am so glad you posted this! I never know what to do with my stainless steel sink. I'll try this this weekend when I have some free time. :)

Thanks for sharing this tip, Heather. I have also recently bought a stainless kitchen sink, as I want one that is sturdy and easy to clean. It's true that the baking soda and vinegar solution is effective, but I like that you added goo gone to ensure that it's totally clean. I think it's not enough to have a clean sink; it has to be shiny as well. :)

Wow, your stainless steel looks so clean! I have a stainless steel refrigerator, and it gets so messy. My kids are always getting into with their sticky hands. Sounds like I need to break out the baking soda and vinegar! I never would have guessed that that could help get rid of stains.
