How to Scrub a Dirty Sink Naturally…

I get busy. Sexy and I are BOTH busy. And sometimes the dinner dishes don’t get done till the next morning. (We’re human, it happens.)Last week I picked up my cast iron skillet which had been left in the sink from the day before and the sink looked like this…


Now I know what most of you are thinking… there’s no way those “natural” cleaners she’s always talking about are gonna REALLY clean THAT!

Think again my friend :)

First I sprinkled the area with baking soda

sprinkle baking soda over the area...

then I poured some vinegar over the whole area and let it bubble up and sit for about 5 mins.

...then add vinegar and let it bubble

Then I came back and sprinkled more baking soda and used my Skoy cloth to scrub the sink until it was clean.

After 5 mins scrub clean

So for all of you who are on the fence about the strength of “green” cleaning, I give you Exhibit A.

Exhibit A

I rest my case. ;)

    I love baking soda! It’s the bomb! I scrub my bathtubs with this and vinegar just because I can’t imagine having my little man taking a bath in a tub cleaned with chemicals.

    My Dad told me about this trick, but I didn’t believe it until he demonstrated it. AMAZING! I’ll never go back to commercial sink cleansers.

    I tried the baking soda today in my sink and it worked wonders! I picked up a box of baking soda yesterday while shopping at Whole Foods..I sprinkled some over a few areas in my sink and it took the stains RIGHT out! Even the rust spots!

    Baking soda is great and it’s one of the least expensive cleaning products to buy, I use it to clean my stainless steel pots and pans. Cleaning products with chemicals make my head hurt.
