How to clean your sink
Mrs Hinch’s kitchen cleaning routine is logical. First, she tends to the sink.
Pours some soda crystals down your drain, and then follow up with some white vinegar. Let it fizz.
Give your kitchen a room makeover by pouring a dash of Mrs Hinch’s favourite product– Zoflora – down the sink. Let it sit for five minutes.
Next, fill the kettle to the maximum limit and boil the water. Pour the contents down the sink to wash away the soda crystals.
Next wipe another cult favourite, The Pink Stuff cleaning paste, all over the sink. Then, wipe it away.
Then, use a Pine disinfectant and wipe the whole sink with a Minky cloth.
Finally, use a Cif Stainless Steel spray all over the basin.
Leave it for 10 minutes, and wipe off with the Spontext Microfibre Kitchen cloths.
