What is the Best Way to Clean a Kitchen Sink?

Be honest: how often do you really clean your kitchen sink?

According to NSF International, a leading organization in public health, the kitchen sink is one of the germiest areas of the home – outranking even bathroom surfaces. While it may seem like the sink should clean itself with every rinse, the wet environment is a breeding ground for harmful microorganisms. To prevent the spread of germs and keep surfaces food safe, the sink should be cleaned at least once per week, maybe even more.

What to Do With All That Tile in the Bathroom

Not all bathrooms are created equally. Some (see: bathroom of my dreams) include multiple sinks with large vanity mirrors, elegant jacuzzi-style tubs big enough to live in, and a storage closet that can house extra toiletries and towels in case of a surprise guest. While others (see: reality, especially in a New York City apartment) include only the bare bones of a sink, a mirror, a toilet, a tub, and lots of empty tile on the wall. The lack of extra storage space in the bathroom may not feel like a problem at first, but when you’re sharing a bathroom with others, you start to notice how challenging it can be.
