Keeping a Stainless Steel Sink clean and sparkly can be a hassle sometimes! I did some searching around for ideas or recipes on how to keep it clean after battling my own very sink the other day. What I came across at Nap Time is the New Happy Hour is simply amazing. Follow the tutorial below to learn how you can keep your sink shiny and clean easily and inexpensively.

First off you will need…

  • -Baking Soda
  • -White Vinegar
  • -Dish Soap
  • -Sponge
  • -Toothbrush
  • -Paper Towels
  • -Wax Paper


Clean your sink with a little bit of dish soap and a paper towel.
Just a quick clean will be fine.
Rinse out.
You do this to get all the gunk off and start with a clean-ish sink.
Sprinkle baking soda into the base of the sink.
Make a paste out of the baking soda.
And begin to scrub the sink with the sponge.
To clean the rim of the sink,
take the toothbrush,
wet it and sprinkle some baking soda directly on the toothbrush.
Begin scrubbing around the rim.
You may need to reapply the paste a couple of times to get around the entire rim of the sink.
Rinse all of the baking soda residue off.

line the base of the sink with paper towels.
Pour the vinegar onto the paper towel so they are fully wet.
Let sit for 20-30 minutes.
Take the paper towels out.
I actually placed them in an grocery bag and took them directly out to the trash
because they would have stunk up the house.
Rinse out the sink with some dish soap and water again.
Rub down with the sponge and soapy water one more time.
And wahla!
You have a sparkling sink!
For a finishing touch,
I took a small amount of wax paper
and rubbed down the faucet.
The wax paper helps prevent water mark build up.
Now this is how you get a sparkling stainless steel sink!
I would recommend doing this twice a month
and along with any OCD-ness your kitchen will be the cleanest on the block!
