How to Prevent Sink Staining
Feb 26, 2015There is nothing more frustrating than finding that your kitchen sink is stained from coffee, tea and food. Stains can make even a new sink look old and outdated. Fortunately, there are a few ways toprevent stains and keep your kitchen sink bright and white.
How to Prevent Stains:
- Keep the Sink Dry - Keep your sink dry in between uses. Turn off the faucet and repair any leaks (even small ones) to keep liquids from sitting in the sink and staining the basin.
- Clean After Use - Be sure to rinse your sink thoroughly after pouring acidic foods, such as tomato juice, coffee or tea into the sink. You should also use a cleaner and sponge to remove any grime from the sink once a day.
- Use Bleach - If you do notice some staining beginning to appear in your porcelain sink, line the sink with a double layer of paper towels. Then sprinkle enough bleach on the towels to dampen them. Leave them in place overnight and wipe them done in the morning.
