Green Deep Cleaning Your House: Day 4 - Sink

Today we're going to scrub down the sink and clean and straighten out that cupboard under the sink.  (See Day 1, for how I clean the cupboards)

For the sink, you'll want to have on hand:
My sink is stainless steel, so here's the results
To clean the sink:
  • Get the Spirisponge or Envirocloth wet.  Dip into the Cleaning Paste.  Scrub down the entire sink.
  • Get around the edges, in the cracks, the backsplash, and the faucet too.
  • If the faucet has water stains that don't come off easily, use some Descaler to get rid of the water stains.  This can also be used on the drain as well.

Here's another example of this working in the sink

  • As long as we are in the scrubbing mood and have the Cleaning Paste out, go ahead and choose a couple of pans to get all that grungy black stains off as well.  You may want to use that Oven & Grill Cleaner to get the metal pans clean.  Every time I clean the dishes, I try to make more headway on a pan or two.  This will be a good time to do that, since your in that area.

Which Spiro to Use When?

  • Spirisponge - Any surface you think might scratch, ceramic, glass, non-stick, tephlon, etc.
  • Spirinett - Metal pans and non scratch surfaces.  I always try this on a little area first, before going ahead.  Mr. Right took off the enamel with this one on my stove top.


  • Don't forget to move down to that cupboard under the sink and clear it out, clean and reorganize it.

Are you keeping up this week?  I'd love to have you share some of your Before and After pictures too!
