How To Clean Your Bathroom Sink

If your bathroom sink is clean, then it is healthy, and it also looks good. If you have a clean sink, you will prevent germs spreading in your household. It can be hard to do, but cleaning your bathroom sink is beneficial and worth the effort it might take, for aesthetic, hygiene and health reasons. Here’s some tips on how to clean your bathroom sink.

Sinks collect anything from used tooth paste, dirt, soap and scum. Thankfully, modern bathroom sinks are constructed with tough materials that can easily withstand this invasion of dirt and grime, and are thus are fairly straightforward to clean. Ideally, it is best to clean your bathroom sink a minimum of once a week, and wipe it down quickly at other times, between uses.

So Here’s How To Clean Your Bathroom Sink:

Begin by donning some protective rubber gloves. You don’t want to be touching the muck that accumulates in the drain and sink! Yuck!

To begin, remove the sink plug, and remove the drain protector if your bathroom sink allows you to. With a paper towel, or a soft cloth, pull out any muck, soap, hair and grime that is stuck and accumulated in the drain. Throw any gunk you remove into the garbage.

To disinfect the drain, stop it smelling, or help get rid of mold, you can pour a little chlorine bleach down the drain and leave it soak for about five minutes. Then pour drinking water down the drain and a lot of muck and mold should lift and run down the drain.

Once this is done, you need to clean the rest of the sink. Use a soft, or moderately abrasive cloth in combination with a multi-purpose cleaner, a bathroom cleaner, or if necessary, a tough tile cleaner (if your sink is ceramic). Spray the product, let it sit for a few minutes, then scrub grime, stains and toothpaste away using your cloth. Finally, rinse off any remaining product with water.

The final step in how to clean your bathroom sink is to dry the sink with a paper towel. This will prevent water spots, which is especially noticeable on stainless steel, but can still be irritating on ceramic sinks.
