How to clean a kitchen sink in 3 minutes

Wine, coffee, tea, dark broth, leftover food, more wine, more coffee… basically all of the things that stain our teeth also stain my poor porcelain sink. Unfortunately, dish soap and a sponge just wasn’t cutting it and our sink was becoming embarrassing. I came across the below DIY recipe to clean a kitchen sink from Erin Meyer, writer of The Organized Life blog on Pinterest. I already had the 3 ingredients her cleaning recipe called for so I figured I would give it a shot. It turned out to be a magical sink cleaning recipe and now I feel morally obligated to pass it along.

If you are embarrassed by stains in your sink, then read on (or watch the video) to learn how to clean a kitchen sink in 3 minutes or less.

    This is great information. I’m trying to decide on a stainless steel or granite. In the end I think I’ll choose a stainless steel. I am a bit concerned about choosing the light color I would need, considering we are hard on our sinks. This article certainly made me think .

    Such a lovely kitchen sink cleaning idea you have demonstrated here. But I don’t think I can do it within 3 minutes. I think it will take slightly more, i.e nearly about 5 to 10 minutes. Still I would like to the appreciate the whole approach of cleaning. Because everyone takes sink cleaning as a time consuming and hectic task. Yes, sometimes it can be. But if they follow the above cleaning procedure, then they can clean their kitchen sinks by consuming less time and also with less effort. Hence, if the intention is right, then I think they will surely implement it from hear onwards.
