Today I did make a scrub, but instead of a tile and grout scrub, I made a DIY Soft Scrub Cleanser. I’m sure I’ll be able to use this on our tile shower as well.
Our white, porcelain kitchen sink is about 25-years-old (yes, we’re due for a new one). It has two sides and the left side has always plagued me with staining around the drain. If I wait too long between scrubbings the stain can build up and be a bear to remove. This is where I find myself today.
I’ve used the commercial brand Soft Scrub before and really like it, but since I’m on the DIY, no chemicals tack, I thought I would try to make my own. And here’s how I did.
I found this tutorial at OneGoodThingByJillee for DIY Soft Scrub Cleanser. I mixed the ingredients and started scrubbing. This is a solution you want to use right away and the amount is just right for the size of a sink.
I have some before and after photos (sort of).
Here are the before photos:
Now here are the after pictures:
I am really happy with how the right side cleaned up. I’m not so happy with the left side and I’m not blaming the cleanser. I’m blaming myself for letting the sink get to this state. I decided to leave the scrub on overnight to see if that makes a difference. I might have to bust out the bleach. Let’s hope not.
Don’t worry about the sink mom. The way I see it, if you’re always cleaning then you’re not taking us on walks, making dog biscuits and playing ball with us. I say, “More Walks – Less Chores”.
