Working Smart Series - 2015Today, I had a thought about shining our sinks. Don't read this if you feel duty-bound to clean both of your double sinks at the same time. However, if you are ready to be flexible and not likely to shine your sink every day anyway, I think you will like this idea. And, your sink will look better.
I have a double sink, and I usually use a dishpan for the dishes I have to wash by hand. Today, I was doing my thing, and as I gazed at the empty sink, I was appalled. Too bad I forgot to take a picture. It just looked gross to me. Anyway, I emptied the little basket I keep in there, sprinkled some Bar Keepers Friend on the basket, both sides of it, and sprinkled the sink. I used a brush I keep for the basket job and I used a sponge that I am going to save for that job to do the rest of the sink.
As I worked on my sink, I had the thought that I could come back and do the other half tonight after supper, after I had cleaned up any supper utensils that could not go in the dishwasher. This idea is great for those who have energy issues, for busy people, who have other things they need to get done, people who have problems with staying focused, and for people who are not really enthused about cleaning. This took me less than two minutes, maybe even less than one. I suppose that depends on how dirty one's sink is.
