Between Thanksgiving’s turkey dinner, and a traditional Christmas feast, your kitchen takes a beating during the holidays. It’s easy to think that constant dishwashing and countertop wiping will keep your kitchen clean as can be, but unfortunately it takes a little more than that to clean your kitchen sink after the holidays.
Kitchen sinks come in different shapes, sizes, and materials. The material your sink is made of will determine the best way to clean it. This is a case of what works for one material oftentimes won’t work for another. Because of this, here are the best ways to clean your kitchen sink based on its material:
It’s easy to get caught up with the sink itself, but don’t forget about the faucet, handles, and other hard to reach areas. We recommend keeping an old toothbrush on hand for giving these areas a good scrub.
One of the most frustrating things about cleaning your kitchen sink after the holidays is the lingering smell. When you’re doing a lot of cooking and dish washing, some food scraps are bound to find their way into your drain. Over time, food scraps and other biological material can get caught in your sink and cause a rather nasty scent.
While it may be tempting to buy a chemical drain cleaner from the store, we’re asking you not to do this. There’s a much more effective cleaning method at home.
All you need is boiling water, baking soda, and white vinegar. Start by pouring a pot of boiling water down your drain, this will help loosen anything lurking in there. Next, pour ½ cup of baking soda and 1 cup white vinegar down the drain. Once the bubbling stops, give the drain another pot of boiling water. That’s all you need to naturally clean your drain.
