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.

Method 2 

How to clean stainless steel sink using salt and lemon juice 

If you do not have vinegar and baking soda at home, clean it with lemon and salt.

Instead of vinegar and baking soda, use equal quantity of lemon juice and salt and follow the same procedure above.

For tough strains 

Mix equal parts of lemon juice and baking soda together. Rub the mixture on the area, leave it for 30-40 minutes and then scrub using a scrubber. Rinse thoroughly with water.


Do not use steel wool for scrubbing as it will leave scratches.

Never leave dirty dishes in the sink. If you feel lazy to wash the dishes immediately, you can put it in a plastic tub and leave it outside the kitchen.

For Regular everyday cleaning

Clean using a few drops of dish washing soap and a scrubber. Rinse it well with water and wipe it dry with a soft cloth.
