How do you clean a white plastic utility sink?
For some people, the idea of cleaning a sink is enough to make them cringe. But when you think about it, there are many ways to clean a sink. You can use chemicals for really tough stains or go with something more natural like baking soda and vinegar if you want something less harsh on your hands but still gets the job done. Let’s take a look at what products will work best for getting that white plastic utility sink looking as good as new!
First, use a scrub brush to remove heavy dirt and grime. Then wipe the surface with bleach or another disinfectant. If that doesn’t work, try scouring the sink with baking soda mixed in warm water.
One way to choose the best utility sink faucet is to assess your needs. You may want a high-arc spout for filling pots or washing vegetables, or you might need a more compact model that will fit on a smaller countertop space. The material of the faucet can also make an impact in terms of durability.
- Fill the sink with hot water and dish soap
- Add a few drops of bleach to the water
- Let it sit for 10 minutes, then scrub with a sponge or brush
- Rinse off all the soap residue and dry with paper towels
- Use an old toothbrush to get into any hard-to-reach places around the faucet or drain
