I can’t write enough about cleaning sinks with vinegar and other natural products. It is not just cheaper and safer, it also works better than many of the cleaning products on the grocery shelves. I found this video on YouTube by Crouton Crackerjacks that demonstrates this concept perfectly.
I have a spray bottle of vinegar under the sink and first soak a thin rag by taking off the lid and pouring it on it, but then after laying the rag on the calcium build-up, spray again, every hour or two to prevent it from drying.
The acid in the vinegar has a chemical reaction with the calcium and dissolves it. I learned that from science experiments in school where we took a bone and soaked it, making it rubbery after a week. That’s why putting a teaspoon of white vinegar in the water when you make a bone broth makes the soup healthier. Anyway, I’m off on a tangent again.
Watch the video and enjoy. You can use a scrub of baking soda after the soak or the worn sponge as the video suggests.
