Porcelain sinks are kind of notorious for getting stained. Whether you’ve been painting and washing brushes or just cooking dinner on busy weeknights, life happens — usually to your nice, white sink. But if you play your cards right, yours can stay looking clean and new for generations. The key is to know what to use that will remove stains and grime without causing damage, such as scratches, or compromising the finish. Here’s the proper way to get your porcelain sink truly clean.
1. The Supplies
You’ll only need 3 simple things to clean your porcelain sink, and you probably already have all of them. First, baking soda. Check your pantry. Even if you’re out you can usually get a new box for well under a buck. Next, look in your medicine cabinet for a bottle of hydrogen peroxide. And again, even if you don’t find any, it’s super cheap to grab one the next time you’re out. Aside from that, you just need a sponge — preferably one with a “scrubby” side that still won’t scratch your sink. But if all you have is a regular old sponge, it’ll work just fine.
