You know, one of the little things I can do to really make the Big Guy sit up and take notice that I've cleaned (besides spraying Pledge in the heating ducts, shhh) is getting all the dishes out of the sink and giving it a good scrub and shine.
I use the small side of my sink as a dish drainer and I admit I'm a little lazy about putting them away. It kind of leaves the kitchen a little messy looking. But even when the sink is empty, the sink is a little dull. I think she's depressed.
It's time to shine her up, baby! (Is this a weird post? Just checking)
My tools of choice?
Bar Keepers Friend (love this stuff! It shines your All Clad, too!)
and a Scrub Brush
This is what my sink looks like after a scrub with dish detergent.
And here it is after my little scrub routine.
I have to admit, I was always on the Bar Keeper's Friend boat and that was that. But I read something a few months ago on Nester about finishing up with a Lemon Oil polish and I was sold!
My mother in law is a big fan of Murphy's Oil Soap and Lemon Oil junky, so I definitely had some oil on hand. Just scrub her up with the brush and the Bar Keeper's Friend, rinse all the grit, dry well, then apply a thin layer of Lemon Oil with a paper towel. Ta da!
I was not paid to write this (but I should have been!) I just really love these two products. Try it, you'll like it, too. Your sink will be like jewelry for your kitchen!
