You use your bathroom sink a lot throughout the day, for lots of things (especially washing your hands after using the toilet). You leave germs on the faucet handles in addition to the clutter and ever-increasing amounts of dust, dirt, and other mess. Your sink collects bacteria faster than you may think. Read these cleaning tips and then go get your sink sanitized and glowing.


How to Clean a Bathroom Sink


The Power of Vinegar

Vinegar is a natural disinfectant and a great way to naturally clean your household items. Create a solution of 1 part water to 1 part vinegar. After clearing your sink of any items, simply scrub your sink with the solution using a sponge or cloth until clean. To finish, rinse down your sink and let dry.


Sanitizing your Sink

Using sanitizing wipes is a wonderful way to keep your sink sanitized. Keep the wipes in handy storage so you can wipe dirt, toothpaste, or grime off as you see it.


Using Soap Boats

A soap boat next to your sink will help keep your sink free from scum. Place your bar soap in a soap boat to help prevent messy soap scum from clinging to your sink.


Unclog your Bathroom Sink

First pull out the stopper, located at the top of the drain. If the clog does not come out after pulling on the stopper, try using a wet-dry vacuum. Place the mouth of the vacuum over your bathroom drain. Turn on the vacuum to the highest setting possible. The suction of the vacuum will draw the clog up from the drain.

The sink can be a breeding ground for germs and bacteria, so a routine  cleaning schedule is a must. Not only will your sink be cleaner and healthier, but you won’t be embarrassed when visitors ask to use your bathroom. Mark a bathroom cleaning on your calendar or call your local house cleaning service to fulfill your house cleaning needs.
