Simply rinsing your sink each time after using it is not enough! Sure, it looks clean and proper but did you know that germs like bacteria and viruses are not killed off, in the process. It takes more than just that to properly clean and disinfect your sinks. Let us educate you a little on how it works!
Add garbage disposal
Installing garbage disposal to your sinks would be a huge help in keeping your kitchen sink clean. The drain trap prevents rubbish and food leftovers from getting into your drains and clogging them. Getting this done is a hundred times better than needing to use extra effort and money just to get your clogged sink repaired.
Throw away any food leftover
Admit it, we all have a habit of throwing our leftovers in our sink when we wash our dishes. It is considered as one of the highest-ranking of the “Don’t” category. Improper disposal of food waste or leftovers greatly affects the cleanliness of your sinks. Don’t let your sink be overrun with rubbish and waste, throw them away before proceeding to the sink.
Wash your plates right away
You could either wash your dishes right after using them or deal with dried, stinking, and crusty bits. The choice lies in your hands! Getting your dishes done right away also gives little, to no chance of letting bacteria grow on them, preventing any visits from pests and insects.
Use lemon juice to remove stubborn stains
Scrub, scrub, scrub but to no avail? Try this, next time! Before you start scrubbing off the stubborn stains on your kitchen sink, take the sponge and soak it in a mixture of a half cup of borax and lemon juice, and let the magic unfold itself. Lemon juice, with its acidic content, is nothing but an excellent cleaning agent. The acidic content in it can remove just about all kinds of stains that are food-based on almost every type of surface.
Fun fact: Lemon juice also aids in eliminating bad odor.
Sanitize the kitchen sink
You can never be too sure when it involves microorganisms such as bacteria or viruses because we can never just see them with our naked eye. Eliminate the possibilities of bacterial spread on your kitchen sinks by using a disinfectant. Don’t have one? Worry not, as it can easily be made at home! Using a mixture of baking soda, vinegar and bleach is one way to produce a “homemade disinfectant”. Spray the mixture all over your sink until it’s wet. Get a clean microfibre towel after 10 minutes, to wipe your sink clean.
It is not known by many, but kitchen sinks play a huge role in our health. Your kitchen should be a safe place for you to grab a glass of water, food, or even to wash your hands. Bookmark this article to come back here anytime to maintain a clean and healthy sink.
