The Super Housewife #2

The sink is where all the work in the kitchen is done, whether it is clean work or, believe it or not, dirty work.

Yes, you will be surprised to hear that your kitchen sink has more dirt and bacteria than your toilet. Considering that this is where we prepare the food that we eat, we should take extra care in cleaning our kitchen sink.

For your day to day use, make sure you wipe your sink dry as much as possible. Remember that a wet surface attracts more bacteria compared to a dry surface. 3 or 4 times a week, clean and disinfect your sink. You can do this by first cleaning your sink with soap and water.

It's hard to believe, but your dirty kitchen sink has more bacteria than your toilet seat. Use a product labeled as an EPA-registered disinfectant, or make your own. To disinfect, clean your sink with soap and water first, then spray a mist of vinegar followed by a mist of hydrogen peroxide, and let air-dry. (Don't mix the vinegar and hydrogen peroxide together—spray one after the other.) If your sink is stainless steel, make it sparkle afterward by putting a few drops of mineral oil on a soft cloth and buffing. This prevents water buildup, which deters mold and keeps the sink looking clean longer.

Next, spray some vinegar on your sink and in particular, the faucet. The acid in the vinegar will kill some of the bacteria lurking on it. Then, spray some hydrogen peroxide. This will disinfect your sink and make it fresh and clean smelling.

There you have it! Being a super housewife is not easy, but a super HOUSEWIFEY always knows what to do.
