The Most Effective Way To Disinfect A Kitchen Sink
In kitchen, people usually wash the dishes, wipe down the counters and mop the floors, but don’t spend as much time on the kitchen sink. The kitchen sink is actually one of the dirtiest parts of your house, especially if you don’t take the time to disinfect it. According to a research at the University of Arizona in most cases, it is safer to make a salad on a toilet seat than it is to make one on a cutting board.
To banish those nasty germs and keep your kitchen in pristine condition, you’ll need to clean your kitchen sink properly. Here is one of the best method to clean and disinfect your kitchen sink.
How To Clean Your Kitchen Sink(nonporous, acrylic-based like Corian, stainless steel or any other type of sink)
What You Need
- Dish or castile soap
- Rubber gloves
- Sponge or microfiber cloth
- Empty the sink: Once you’ve finished doing your dishes for the night, empty the sink.
- Sprinkle vinegar around: Because vinegar is only mildly abrasive, it will help break up food particles without harming the sink surface.
- Add the soap: Wearing rubber gloves, squirt a little soap onto your sponge.
- Add hot water: Adding a little hot water at a time… start scrubbing. If your tap water doesn’t get that hot, boil some in your tea kettle.
Scrub from the outside in: Scrub your sink from the outside in, top to bottom (this way your dirty water will drip into the areas you haven’t cleaned yet instead of the spot that are already clean). Spend at least 20 seconds in each area, and longer if there’s a visible sign of food stuck to the sink. Once the sink is finished, scrub the inside of the drain.
