How to clean stainless steel sink using vinegar and baking soda
First rinse or wet your stainless steel sink with water.
Sprinkle baking soda (or cooking soda) all over the sink. (Baking soda is a natural cleanser). Then add 1-2 tbsp of white vinegar. Spread it all over the sink area using a nylon scrub or any non abrasive scrubber.
Let it sit for 15-20 minutes.
Do not rinse the sink. Take 3-4 drops of dish washing soap in a scrubber and scrub in a circular motion all over the sink with little water.
Using an old tooth brush, scrub the holes of the sink drain and tap/faucets. You can also rub a used lemon peel and clean the tap.
Then rinse the sink and the tap thoroughly with plenty of water.
Finally wipe the sink with a dry cloth. Keep your sink dry when not in use to prevent water marks and rust.
You can do this once in a week or once in 15 days depending upon the condition of your sink.
