Clean A White Sink Without Bleach

I think white sinks are beautiful. Especially white farm sinks. Love em! But my white porcelain sink takes on stains very easily so I have to work hard to keep it from getting too yucky. Porcelain is a porous material which gets more porous as the years and chips and dings and general wear and tear go on.

When we first moved into our apartment, I thought the white sink was a beautiful piece in our all-white kitchen. Little did I know, white kitchen sinks do not stay white and beautiful very long.

I used to think Soft Scrub with Bleach was the only way to keep my white sink white. I’ve since figured out a couple easy ways to keep my sink white without toxic chemicals.

Here is what you need:

  • baking soda
  • hydrogen peroxide
  • lemon oil

The first step is to lightly sprinkle baking soda over the bottom of the sink. Use a damp sponge to start scrubbing the stains and scuff marks away..

Once you have worked the baking soda all over the sink, pour some hydrogen peroxide on the sponge and scrub some more.

After you thoroughly scrub down the inside of the sink and the drain, let the baking soda and hydrogen peroxide mixture sit in the sink and work some more magic for about 15 more minutes.

After those 15 minutes, come back and rinse the sink thoroughly.

Now for a really good shine and lovely scent, take some lemon essential oil and put a few drops on a soft cloth.
