The Day I Cleaned My Kitchen Sink

Am I a party animal or what?  Good times at my house today.

I cleaned this house.  Top to bottom.  Even vacuumed the crown moulding!  Oh the glorious smell of a clean house.

Recently I saw a post on pinterest about cleaning your stainless steel sink.

Here's my story:

 Welcome to my kitchen.

 Say hello to my kitchen sink.

 Materials needed:  vinegar in a spray bottle, baking soda, olive oil, paper towel with holiday design and goo be gone.  I didn't have goo be gone in a squirt top thingie.  But I found Goof Off wipes which.. well, don't want to spoil the ending.

 Step 1.  Spray the entire sink with vinegar.  Sprinkle with baking soda.  Wait 10 minutes.

 While you are waiting, boil a pot of water.  

When the timer beeps, rinse the sink with the boiling water.  I could not take a photo of that.  I then
wiped down the surface with a dry paper towel taking extra scrub time in the nooks and crannies.  Things were looking shiny and clean.

Then here's the big surprise.  After I rinsed the sink, I scrubbed it down with a Goo B Gone Wipe.  
What is happening??

  Fresh wipe on the left compared to the one I used to scrub my ALREADY SCRUBBED SINK!

Whose sink is this?

I wiped the sink with olive oil.  Buffed it to a shine. 
 Stood back and thought,   "You really need to get out more"  

I love a clean kitchen.

  1. I love a clean kitchen too....and when my old porcelain sink shines with a brilliant, blinding light, I'm extremely pleased!

  2. I love porcelain sinks. Sadly my house doesn't have one. Either way, I love a shiny kitchen!!
