How to Clean a White Farmhouse Sink

** Please Read!: After cleaning with baking soda, make sure your disposal is completely rinsed out before pouring vinegar down your drain. Vinegar & baking soda create a chemical reaction that is bad for you.

My husband surprised me with our kitchen remodel starting when I was out of town (major husband points). I think I almost fell over when I saw my new stunning white farmhouse sink.

Within a few weeks, I noticed that it was starting to get yellowish/brownish. With coffee, tea, & all other food items hitting my beautiful sink. I used my regular cleaner & to my dismay, the stains did not disappear.

Iย thought back to one day when I was babysitting in high school & the little girl spilled kool-aid all over her laminate counters. That stuff would NOT come off. This 7 year old confidently said, “Don’t

worry, I’ll show you.” She got a stool, pulled the baking soda out of the pantry, and sprinkled a little water & baking soda on the stain, and 10 minutes later, POOF! I thought, “Dang girl, you a genius (insert dancing GIF here)”.

On my farmhouse sink, I sprayed my normal Greenworks surface cleaner, then sprinkled baking soda over the affected areas & waited 5-10 minutes. I scrubbed with aย Mr. Clean Magic eraser, which worked 10 times better than a cleaning rag. Voila! Shiny bright white sink. This also worked on my white & grey quartz counters!

** Please Read!: After cleaning with baking soda, make sure your disposal is completely rinsed out before pouring vinegar down your drain. I cleaned with vinegar later that day & emptied the solution down my kitchen sink & the two had a chemical reaction & it stung my throat and I kept coughing until the baking soda was gone. **

I hope this helps you!
