Shine Your Sink!


If you have never shined your sink before, now is the time!  I felt a dire need to shine my sink again, so I did that tonight.  I originally discovered this novel idea from the Flylady years ago.  Here’s how I do it.

  • Plug the drain(s) in your sink.
  • Pour a small layer of bleach into the sink.
  • Fill sink nearly to the top with HOT water.
  • Let sit for about 15 minutes.
  • While the water is sitting, disinfecting, and cleaning, I clear off my counter and use the bleach water to wipe it and the surrounding surfaces.
  • After 15 minutes, unplug the drain and wipe the sink down, including the drain area, as the water is draining.

You will see a shiny sink when you are done, and it will make you feel soooooo good!  Then pour yourself a cup of tea and put your feet up! 

Blessings to you and your sink.  ;-)


  1. This is great! I love a clean sink. I am not sure why but is a great feeling when there are no dishes in sight and on top of it, your sink and faucet are shiny and clean! I am going to try this little tip~~ thank you!! ;-)

  2. You're going to laugh, Lisa, but for some reason, when I saw your title, I thought of "Get Your Engines Ready!" LOL I have no idea why! It's just how my mind works sometimes! (or...doesn't work, perhaps?? LOL)

  3. You're welcome, Sarah beth! I hope you like your clean sink. I am still enjoying mine. ;-)

    Susie, you are funny! Well, I guess we need our engines revving if we are going to clean our sinks. ;-)
