How-To: Cleaning Porcelain Bathtubs and Sinks
This might come in handy when you clean the toilets, countertops, and tiles, too!
Porcelain fixtures are commonly found in both older and newer homes. Be it sinks, bathtubs, toilets or countertops—these items can increase the value of your property. However, with years of use or neglect, it can turn stained and dingy. To help you maintain your enamel fittings, here's a cleaning guide you can do regularly:
What you need:
- Dishwashing Liquid
- Baking Soda
- Lemon Essential Oil
- Lemon Juice
- In a bucket, mix warm water with ¼ cup of baking soda and ¼ cup of ammonia. This combination of ingredients is great for cutting grease and soap scum buildup.
- Soak the sponge into your solution and scrub the surface of the space you’re cleaning. Don’t forget to go over stained areas twice to remove every last bit of grime.
- For stubborn rust and product stains, cover it with table salt. Pour some lemon juice over the salt and let it sit for an hour. Scrub away the mixture with a clean washcloth.
- Finish off by squeezing a small amount of lemon essential oil onto the same washcloth and use it to polish the sink or the tub. This helps repel product build up and keeps the space smelling fresh, too!
