Make no mistake. Wash basins are in constant demand and
receive regular visits by members of the family and guests.
As a result, they easily get stained or collect soap
deposits, and all kinds of water spots will develop if you
do not keep it clean. A good rule of thumb would be to clean
your kitchen or bathroom basin after about 30 uses. Basin
cleaning need to form part of your regular cleaning duties
on a weekly basis.
Visitors to countries like Singapore are often blown away by
the cleanliness of the country itself, and would expect to
find a clean home, including wash basins and kitchen sinks.

way your bathroom look to outsiders, but it will ensure good
Here are a couple of useful basin cleaning tips so you may
impress your guests with a functional and clean wash up area
whether it be in your bathroom or kitchen:
1) The most basic way would be to pour a cleaning solution
onto the surface area of your basin. Let it stand for 3 to 5
minutes, before you scrub it clean with a brush or sponge by
wearing a good pair of cleaning gloves to ensure your hands
do not get in touch with the cleaning detergent.
2) Alternatively, you may simply squirt some dish-washing
liquid into a bowl of lukewarm water, then dip your sponge
into the mixture and scrub the area you want to clean
gently. For a more thorough scrub, you can try a nonabrasive
cleaner or all-purpose cleaning spray.
3) Do you have a porcelain basin in need of cleaning, but
are worried about damaging the surface area? All you need to
do is to line it with paper towels that are soaked with
bleach. Then let it go to work for at least a half an hour
before you discard them. Simply rinse the basin with running
water and you have yourself a sparkling clean porcelain
sink. In case you have a colored porcelain basin, you can
always use a bit of baking soda, vinegar or mild liquid
detergent to ensure you do not fade the color.
4) There are pretty useful ways to see to it that your
kitchen basin is protected from stains or scratches you may
want to try. One way is to lay down a perforated plastic mat
at the bottom of your sink. Not only will it protect the
surface of your basin, but your dishes will have a softer
landing to prevent possible breakage. Talking about kitchen
sinks. Do not let salad dressings, vinegar or fruit linger
on porcelain based kitchen basins as it may results in
stubborn stains due to acid build up.
5) What about basins made of acrylic-based material that are
nonporous? These should be easy to clean and fairly
stain-resistant, not so? Using a solid surface cleaner or
soapy water might be all you need to keep it clean. Any
stains can easily be rubbed out with a bit of baking soda or
water that is mixed with toothpaste. Take care to make use
of a nonabrasive scrubbing pad, and ensure you rinse the
basin thoroughly once cleaned.
6) Another handy way to get rid of stains in your basin is
with lemon juice. Make a paste consisting of the juice of
half a lemon and one cup of borax powder. Dip your cleaning
sponge in the mixture, then rub the surface and run water to
get rid of the paste that still remains. This cleaning
method is ideal for stainless steel, porcelain enamel, or
any other surface.
7) You may find it hard to clean off the lime deposits on
your bathroom faucets that accumulated over time due to
mineral-rich hard water. Do not fret too much. These are
usually easy to remove by making use of a secret ingredient
in your pantry. We are of course referring to vinegar. All
you need to do is to soak a paper towel in a bit of vinegar.
Then wrap it around the area affected. Wait at least 10
minutes before you buff it dry using paper towelling. Watch
out that you do not attempt doing this on colored or brass
fixtures as it may discolour it.

and free from any germs. Nothing could be worse than letting
your guests walk into your bathroom area to find the basin
