An Eco-Friendly Sink Cleaner

I was watching HGTV the other day and Sabrina Soto taught me a new way to clean my sink.

I have a white, porcelain sink.  I really wanted stainless steel, but my husband insisted on a white, farmhouse sink.  It's beautiful, and large, really fun to use, but awful to keep clean.
I usually use Barkeeper's friend.  I'm a fan.

But, I decided to give this new way a try.
We're always trying to do things healthier, safer for the family.

Here are the ingredients:

3 parts Baking Soda
1 Part Hydrogen Peroxide
1 Lemon

Mix the Baking Soda and Hydrogen Peroxide to make a paste.  Drop a spoonful into your sink and rub it around with a soft, wet cloth.  After you've scrubbed the stains off, rub half a lemon over it.  Enjoy the yummy smelling fizz.  Rinse with hot water.

It worked so good!  And, although it did leave my hands a touch slimy, it was way better than the gritty, sharp stuff BKF leaves behind.

Here are the pics of it's beautifulness
