How to Clean a Sink with Dawn

No matter what your sink is made of, follow this guide for a better clean.

The kitchen is one of the most used rooms in any home, and with leftover food particles and standing water, the kitchen sink may be the dirtiest spot in the house. No matter the style or décor, Dawn can give any kitchen sink a fresh clean look by following these easy steps.

1. Remove the Dishes

It might sound like common sense, but in order to clean your sink we need to remove all of the items currently inside it.

2. Let It Spray

Give your sink a quick rinse off with warm water. Ideally a sink hose or faucet attachment works best, but you can also use a wet rag or sponge to get the job done.

3. Circle the Drain

For best results, use a concentrated dish soap like Dawn. Squirt Dawn onto the bottom surface of the sink, circling the drain. Do not dispense onto the sides of the sink or you will have too much dish liquid.

4. Rub-A-Dub-Dub

Use the soft side of a sponge or soft brush in a circular motion to clean the bottom of the sink basin. Scrub the sides of the sink using the same circular motion.

5. Cleaning Is in the Details

Use a toothbrush to clean the dirty areas around the faucet and other hard to reach spaces.

6. Time for a Rinse

Rinse the sides of the sink first. If you have the hose attachment or faucet pull-down, now is the time to use it. If not, fill a cup of water to rinse off the soap. Next use a clean, damp towel to wipe it down any remaining excess residue.

7. Garbage Disposal

If you have a garbage disposal, freshen it by pouring a squirt of Dawn into the drain and letting it set for 30 seconds. Then run with water into it for a few minutes until all suds have disappeared.

You’re done. Enjoy the clean sink … while it lasts.
