How to clean a stainless steel sink Cleaning your sink can be frustrating. Here is a simple way to get your sink clean and make it sparkle.


1. Put some white vinegar on the micro-fiber cloth.
2. Rub the vinegar around in your sink with the micro-fiber cloth.
3. If you don’t like the smell of vinegar you can use the fabric softener sheet to rub the inside of the sink to mask the smell.
4. Place some baby oil on your cloth and rub it in the sink to remove any streaks.
5. Buff out the rest of the sink with a dry side of your cloth.

Transcript Hi I’m Julie Edelman, the Accidental Housewife, here on howdini.com, and today we’re going to make magic in our kitchen sinks. We’re going to make them sparkle really simply with some vinegar, with some fabric softener sheets, and baby oil, and of course one of my favorite little handy-dandy household tools: microfiber cloth.

All right what we’re going to do is we’re going to put some white vinegar on here. Okay you douse it. Then we’re going to rub it, dub, dub almost like singing in the tub. Then in case you don’t like that smell from vinegar, great little tip here: use these fabric softener sheets and just rub the sides. Mmm, so aromatic almost makes me want to throw a load in.

Okay next though what about the streaks you get? Use some baby oil. That will remove them. It beads up whatever gook is on there. There you go. Look how nice that looks. And then finish with a little buff. And muah muah muah, you’re looking great! I’m Julie Edelman, the Accidental Housewife, here on howdini.com.
