Get Your Stainless Sink to Shine!

Since we use our nice big kitchen sink to give Evey her baths I'm always making sure to keep it empty and wiped down with soap and water but it just wasn't cutting it. Plus I had left a metal sheet pan in it for too long a few months ago and it left a rust spot that soap could not remove. So one day I broke out my Dollar Tree Magic Eraser knock-off and decided to give it a go and to my surprise the rust was gone immediately! 


I kept wiping with the eraser and was so grossed out at the amount of grime that was coming up and what a difference the shiny clean surface was underneath so I kept scrubbing until the whole thing was clean. All the rust was completely gone as well as quite a few tiny paint splatters that you could only see up close. You can see in the shots below that there's a clean spot on the right where I started and you can compare it to how it looked before...so grimy!

And thanks to Pinterest I learned that a bit of baby oil rubbed in with a dry paper towel ramps up the shine for a beautiful gleaming sink! That's a great home staging tip if your house is on the market.
