There’s nothing more cringe-worthy than passing by a sink covered in water spots or stainsóboth of which stared me straight in the face this morning as I made my coffee.
It might seem like a low-priority cleaning task, but it’s worth learning how to polish a stainless steel sink so that these types of smudges won’t taunt you every time you wash a dish.
And believe it or not, there’s a simple cleaning hack you can master that makes polishing it a total breeze. It just requires just one (yes, one!) pantry ingredient you definitely have.
Honestly, we probably love our stainless steel sinks. They’re pretty. They’re sturdy. And most importantly, they can be super shiny, especially if you give them a good polish every now and then.
While your houseguests might not pull you aside and ask your secret to a shiny sink, they’ll definitely get the impression of a well-kept kitchen. Still, cleaning a stainless steel sink doesn’t just preserve its good looks. It also helps prevent corrosion, keeping the surface in its best possible condition.
