Cleaning the Sink

My sink is never really THAT dirty. My house might be destroyed but I have to have the dishes done and the sink wiped out. I first started doing this when I discovered FlyLady. If you have never heard of her, I highly recommend browsing through her website. Wow!!

I have organized under the kitchen sink but have not shown how I clean the actual sink itself. Here is the Before Shot. It looks shiny but is dirty!

See...not that clean!

I started by removing everything on and around the sink.

Then, I ran hot water over all the surfaces to get rid of any loose dirtiness and then sprayed it with good 'ol Windex. Hey... it shines EVERYTHING! (For deep-cleaning, I use Bon Ami Polishing Cleanser)

It looks much better but I wasn't done yet!

I keep an old toothbrush on hand to get into those hard-to-clean spots. I scrubbed both drains, garbage disposal liner and around the lip of the sink.

And the After... pretty!

Now it's your turn...


  1. Yay! I use Fly Lady everyday.... or at least I try everyday! :) She has certainly helped my house, but I hate all the emails I get!

  2. Love your blog!! I also love a clean sink too. Hope you are well and keeping warm...

  3. Very nice. Thanks for linking up!

  4. Looks great! I keep my sink pretty clean, but it could use to be a little shinier. I need to work on that.
