Today over at Learning the Frugal Life’s Frugal Tuesday Tip, Sara’s talking about how to get a shiny sink – frugally and by green methods!
Her topic goes perfectly with my blog post on how I keep my grocery budget low using homemade cleaning supplies – Part 2 of my 10 Part Series.
It’s a perfect topic because look what I have:
A really DIRTY sink. I wish I could tell you that it got that dirty on purpose, so I could write this blog post for you…Alas, that would be a lie! 😉 It just got that dirty…
So after I read Sara’s post this morning, I also tried my hand at cleaning my sink with natural products. I don’t have bleach in my house, yet I would still like a shiny sink from time to time. So here’s how you, too, can get a shiny sink without bleach.
How to Clean Porcelain Sinks without Bleach
- Got out my baking soda and scrub brush
- Got my sink wet
- Smeared a whole bunch of baking soda on my sink
- Scrubbed the sink with my scrub brush
A sparkly clean, beautiful sink! Fly Lady would be so proud… 🙂
I am especially thrilled because it required minimal effort and baking soda is non-toxic! My house doesn’t stink and I have a clean sink using natural (and cheap) products.
After cleaning my sink for a while with Baking Soda, I have learned that cleaning my porcelain sink is even easier and yields a better result with BORAX!
Have you tried any homemade cleaners? What do you think?
