I have mentioned this tip a year ago or so under the easy DIY bathroom cleaners post. I thought it was worth mentioning again though because I am in the process of a nice deep clean in the kitchen this week!
This was partly due to the fact that my wonderful husband went through a few packages of chicken I bought and put them into individual servings to stick in the freezer. He left all the extra chicken wrapping and trays in the trash and when I came home to our lovely sunny kitchen (on a nice warm day)…. well you can imagine how pleasant that smells.
So I thought I’d do a good scrub down of the kitchen and wanted to remind you how easy it is to freshen a sink and also clear up any gross clogging issues you might have.
This works 99% of the time for me in both the kitchen and the bathroom and is a very inexpensive and non toxic solution.
I like to do this in the kitchen sink about once a week to keep things nice and fresh and smelling good.
All you need is:
- 1 cup baking soda
- 1/2 cup vinegar
And get a plate out to cover up right away.
So you simply pour the baking soda down the drain and then dump the vinegar on top. It fizzes a little so grab your plate and put it on top of the drain right away.
Next just leave it alone for a bit- 20-30 minutes and then remove the plate and run hot water (make sure it is hot) for about 2 minutes.
And that is all there is to it!
A nice fresh and clean sink. If you want extra credit you can also put your lemon or other citrus rinds down the drain. I drink lemon water daily so I run those down the garbage disposal too.
