I’ve posted this tip on Instagram and Facebook but I though it was finally time that I wrote a post about it because people love this tip! You know that gunk that builds up around the drain in the bathroom sink? Mine is usually a pink-ish color and it looks pretty nasty.
Well I have a very simple solution for how to get rid of it in between bathroom cleanings, or just in general if it doesn’t want to come off when you clean the sink.
Here’s what you need –
Run the water in the sink until it gets hot. Once the water turns hot, close the drain.
Fill the sink with about 1 inch of hot water.
Open the denture cleaning tablet and drop it in the sink. It will start to fizzle and turn blue or green, depending on the brand. Walk away and let it do it’s thing.
After about 15 minutes check back to see if the fizzing has stopped and the water is more of a clear color. If it’s still bright blue or green that means it’s still working so check back in about 10 more minutes.
Once the fizzing stops and the water color fades, drain the sink. Rinse it with cool water and wipe the sink clean with either a sponge or a microfiber cloth.
That’s all you do! Who knew that cleaning the gunk around the drain could be as easy as just dropping a tablet in some hot water? 🙂 This is also a great trick to use when you have guests coming over and you want to quickly clean your bathroom sinks! Do you have any fun cleaning hacks to share? I’d love to hear them!
