Secrets to a Shiny (and clean!) Sink

How To Clean Your Sink

Heads up… your kitchen sink might be the germiest place in your house! Just check out this WebMD article. According to Eileen Abruzzo, director of infection control at Long Island College Hospital of Brooklyn, New York, food particles from plates left to soak or rinsed from dishes on their way to the dishwasher can serve as a breeding ground for illness-causing bacteria, including E. coli and salmonella. They can get on your hands or spread to foods. Below we offer suggestions for how to clean your sink fixtures and get back that sparkly shine.

Tips to remove E. Coli and Salmonella germs that can live in your sink basin

E. Coli and Salmonella can live in the basin of your kitchen sink!

Although most people take steps to disinfect their toilet bowls, few give their kitchen sink the same consideration, Abruzzo tells WebMD. “They rinse their sinks with water and assume they are clean — but they’re not.”

So what is Abruzzo’s advice to sanitize your sink?

To sanitize your sink and prevent the spread of bacteria, Abruzzo recommends washing it with a solution of bleach and water once a day and then letting the solution run down the drain. Remember to remove the drain plug and clean it, too, she says. Then wash your hands.

And hey, while you’re at it, here’s our fix to get that kitchen sink shining…

Use wax paper to get your kitchen sink and fixtures extra shiny

Use wax paper to get your kitchen sink and fixtures extra shiny

Say whaaat?? Yep, that’s right, just your run-of-the-mill Reynold’s Cut-Rite wax paper. It’s pretty simple, too. Just wash your sink fixture like you normally would, and after you’re done rub it all down with some wax paper. The wax coating rubs off on to the metal of your sink faucet, knobs, etc., and prevents the water spots that would otherwise develop within minutes of cleaning everything off.
