How to Clean a Porcelain Sink





Introduction: How to Clean a Porcelain Sink

Every-time that I clean my stove top; I get black marks in my porcelain sink.  I have been avoiding harsh chemicals to clean my house so this Instructable is how I clean my sink using friendlier products.  My sink is the original sink from the late 30's.  There have been many tenants over the years and I think for its age and use the sink looks pretty good. 

Step 1: Products

To clean this sink I used:

Baking Soda.

Step 2: Tools

Sponge with a safe texture for cleaning.
Bar towels.

Step 3: Scrub

Wet the sink.
Wet the sponge.
Sprinkle Baking Soda on the sponge.
Begin scrubbing the surface.

Step 4: Peroxide

Add Peroxide to the sponge.
Scrub some more.
Let set for 15 Minutes.

Step 5: Rinse

  • Rinse the sink thoroughly.
  • Scrub any remaining spots.
  • Rinse again.
  • Buff dry with a bar towel.
  • Done!

Step 6: Sunshiine's Final Thoughts

As you can see the Baking Soda and Peroxide did wonders for the marks.  I use these products a lot around my house and I am very pleased with the results.  Just think; I did not have to use harsh chemicals and the sink is beautiful!  
Thanks for stopping by and have a super weekend!

    Sunshine hydrogen peroxide is water with one more oxygen atom. It is very safe.

    Thanks again Luke, I hope your day shiones~


    One of the worst things you can do is use an oily product to shine surfaces. It will trap bacteria unless you really scrub at the surface. I work food safety in a food processing plant.

    Thanks for sharing this information Luke, It is very useful. I will make changes to my tutorial. Have a great day.

    Another cheap friendly way to clean stuff like this is using white and my mother use vinegar for EVERYTHING that need s cleaned

    Thanks for sharing! I appreciate your input! Have a great day!

    Baking Soda and Peroxide are chemicals you know?


    I have MCS and I can use these products where almost all on shelf items I cannot. If you can put it in your mouth than it should be a safe product. I use peroxide as a mouth wash. I wash my hair with baking soda and clean my toliets with it plus many other uses. It is a natural product.

    It is a natural product?
    From where is 'peroxide naturally obtained, and how natural is the Solvay Process to you?


    I will need to change my wording I guess. Any suggestions?
