I won’t be known for my housekeeping skills. I’m far better at tidying and organizing than actual cleaning.
One of my least favorite chores used to be cleaning the sink.
We make most of our toiletries products and one of the common ingredients in coconut oil. While it’s awesome for your body, it makes our sinks extra gross and slimy. No cleaner cut through the grease quickly. It took lots of time and lots of paper towels to wipe up the icky gunk.
Then I had an epiphany.
This post is part of a HUGE series of natural living posts by tons of other great bloggers. You’ve gotta check it out! I know I’ve learned a lot! There’s even a chance to win awesome natural prizes!
What would happen if I sprinkle dry baking soda in a dry sink and wipe it up with a paper towel?
Well, let me show you.
P.S. This is proof I’ve lost all my dignity. This is my real sink. This is my real life. Don’t judge me!
The coconut oil was a sticky trap for shavings and stray hairs. YUCK!
But look what happens when I gently rub dry baking soda on a dry sink. Comes up immediately! It’s not just being spread around. It’s seriously awesome!
And the end results after 30 seconds…
My only additional advice would be to make sure everything is dry, or you’ll still be dealing with sliminess. Once all the gunk has been dislodged, rinse the clumped baking soda down the drain, it will just slip away.
