How To Shine Your Kitchen Sink

Shiny Kitchen Sink

 

Whenever I share a picture of my kitchen sink (yes, after a quick scrub it really does look like BELOW. . . ) I always get a few questions asking how to shine your kitchen sink. Somewhere over the last few years I read a tip that suggested using a little olive oil to shine your sink after a good cleaning, and I use it about once a week to keep it sparkly clean!

So. . . . there you have it. Do you have any other tips on shining those sinks? I'd sure love to hear them! (I spent this morning working on the bathroom . . . more details tonight. Sure wish it was that easy!)

    I cannot tell a lie — I just did Sink 101 to mine yesterday. I have an older cream colored porcelain sink holds a stain for everything put in it. Sink 101 is to fill each side of the sink with hot water, then add 1 cup of bleach. Sure lookls better!

  4. To scrub my stainless steel sink I slice a lemon in half put some salt on it and go to town. Makes my sink smell lemony fresh and when your done throw the other half in the garbage disposal and run to freshen that up also.

  5. On my bathroom sinks, shower, and tubs I occasionally apply car wax and buff them to a shine. It helps in fighting soap scum and the likes for months! Just makes cleaning them a wiz!

  6. On all stainless and grainte counter tops I use Orange Glo… it is a polish for wood but makes wood too greasy…. works perfectly on stainless….only need a quick little spray

    So, what I take from all this even though it is not actually stated, is that you first clean your sink with whatever then take any type of olive oil and spray? or drizzle with olive oil then wipe the oil over the entire sink so that all the surface area is covered?? I fail to see how doing this would clean your sink. Sure it puts a shine on it but the oil will hold bacteria which is a breeding ground for infection. I use lagostina stainless steel cleanser. You know you are getting your sink clean when the cloth you are using becomes a very dark grey in color. Rinse well with water then wipe with a paper towel. Water will bead up after using this. It is not a cheap cleanser but you do not have to use very much to get the desired effect.

  10. Best cleaner for stained sinks off ALL types…AMMONIA!!! Fill sinks to brim with cool water and 2 caps of straight ammonia. Let soak for 30 minutes (I suggest cracking a window during this process) drain and rinse! No scrubbing required! This even worked on a 75 year old painted iron farm sink!!!!!

    I have a black granite sink. To keep it clean and shiny, I clean it with a Magic Eraser then I put a small amount of Mineral Oil on a paper towel and rub it on the sink to make it shiny.
