How To Clean A Stainless Steel Sink
We get a lot of questions from people who are confused about how to clean a stainless steel kitchen sink or other stainless steel sink and what products to use to clean it. It can seem confusing and daunting, but is really pretty simple. Join us for this easy step by step demonstration of several methods you can use, including a natural, non-chemical method.
Here is the outline of things we discuss in this garage sale video:
Introduction to stainless steel and why I prefer stainless steel sinks.
1:03 I’m going to give you 2 methods — 1) Comet cleanser and 2) baking soda and vinegar. You can also use a great product called Bar Keeper’s Friend, but I don’t demonstrate it in this video.
1:08 Comet cleanser – I use just regular Comet. It doesn’t scratch your sink if you make a paste with water. I like it because it has a little bit of bleach in it and disinfects well.
1:20 The other method is baking soda and vinegar. It’s a good alternative if you don’t want to use Comet.
1:31 The only thing I don’t like about it is that the vinegar does not disinfect as well as bleach, despite all the rumors going around the Internet. Read about using vinegar or bleach to disinfect here:
2:07 I use the washrag I had already been using to clean dishes to clean my sink because I’m getting ready to toss it in the laundry.
2:26 I start by cleaning the soap off the outside of my soap bottle. This also helps me use the soap on the rag to start cleaning.
2:50 First, I wipe down the sink to get it wet.
3:54 Cleaning with Comet (If you use products with bleach, rinse immediately because bleach can pit your sink if let it sit.) Bar Keeper’s Friend is another good cleanser, which does not contain bleach, so it will not harm the stainless steel.
5:25 After you’re done cleaning the sink, wipe down the counters.
5:33 Then, after you’re done cleaning, dry the counters and the sink. This is what makes it look shiny and extra clean.

7:30 Baking soda and vinegar makes a great drain opener. You can get the recipe here;
8:26 Grab a towel and dry the sink and counters
9:00 If you want to add an extra polish to your sink, you can also wipe it down with mineral oil or olive oil.
