Clean your Bathtub and Sink
Clean your Bathtub and Sink . After going over your bathtub, sink or shower with disinfectant, wipe the area with baby oil or lemon oil. Do this once or twice a month to help dirty water bead and roll down the drain faster,This is another tip to get rid of disinfectants . Pour white vinegar or baking soda down the drain and flush with hot water. For the faucet, Gerba recommends disposable disinfecting wipes, which significantly reduce bacteria. (In contrast, cloths may just move germs from one spot to another; Gerba has even found bacteria from the toilet bowl living in the kitchen sink.) If you must use cloths, be fastidious about where each one is employed and stored. When the handles are done, floss the faucet (yes, you read that right). The stringy stuff is perfect for tackling that narrow, grimy space where the base of the faucet and the taps meet the sink.
Replacing a kitchen sink makes no small impact on your wallet. Once you’ve got a shiny new one in place, there are many easy things you can do to keep it in like-new condition:
• Install a perforated plastic mat in the bottom of your sink. This will protect the sink’s surface from scratches and mars and will protect your dishes, too.
• Don’t let fruit, vinegar, salad dressing, or other acidic foods linger on the surface of a porcelain enamel sink. Long-term exposure to acids can cause staining and could etch the surface.
• Don’t use scouring powders to clean your sink. Instead, use the warm water and dish detergent formula we describe above.
