Make Your Stainless Steel Sink Look New


Do you have a stainless steel sink (or what appears to be stainless steel) that looks like it hasn’t been cleaned since the Carter administration? Here’s some help…

• Use distilled white vinegar on a damp cloth or sponge to get rid of your sink’s unsightly water spots. And, since the vinegar will brighten up the stainless steel, you might as well wipe the entire sink with it.

• For stubborn spots (from hard water or otherwise), use baking soda. Add water to baking soda to make a thick paste. Apply the paste on the stains, and let it stay for one or two hours. Then, with a damp cloth, wipe off the paste, and rinse the sink clean.

• Remove rust from your sink by rubbing the corroded areas with rubbing alcohol.
