Spring is here, and that means budding flowers, warmer weather, and spring cleaning. While chores in the kitchen and bathroom can be daunting, cleaning sinks and faucets doesn’t have to be. With Pioneer’s easy-care faucets, you can spring clean using all-natural items you’ll find in your pantry, like baking soda, vinegar, and lemon juice. With these easy cleaning techniques, you can cross sinks off your list and get back to the outdoors in no time.

Spring Cleaning Faucets

The best place to start when tackling the sinks is top-down. Most of the time, all that is needed to maintain your faucets’ smooth finish is a simple wipe down with warm, soapy water. Always use a soft cloth or sponge to avoid scratching the finish. Spring Cleaning Tip: When cleaning your faucets’ base, dental floss or a toothbrush works well to clean those hard-to-reach areas. If you’re dealing with hard water deposits, wipe down any trouble areas with white vinegar. You may need to leave the vinegar on the faucet to soak. You can do this by laying a wet cloth soaked in vinegar. When you finish, rinse and gently buff the faucets dry using a soft microfiber cloth.

Spring Cleaning Sinks

Sinks can be a significant collection point for germs which makes routine deep cleaning essential. After wetting your sink with water, sprinkle the base and sides with baking soda and a few drops of dish soap. Rub gently over the basin with a damp cloth or sponge. After rinsing again, your sink should have a beautiful, smooth shine. Spring Cleaning Tip: For a refreshing smell, rub the sink lightly with the inside of a lemon or orange peel. These techniques are safe for both porcelain and stainless steel sinks.

Spring Cleaning Drains

When you finish cleaning the sink, it’s always a good idea to test how well the water is draining. Spring Cleaning Tip: If the pipes are draining slowly, a solution of white vinegar and baking soda or lemon juice and baking soda will naturally work away at any bits of food that may be slowing down the water flow. Pour 1/2 cup baking soda down the drain, followed by 1/2 cup vinegar or lemon juice. Then, plug the sink so that the solution stays in the pipes and does its work. After 30-60 minutes, flush the baking soda mixture down with boiling water. Once finished, your sinks will be in top condition for months to come. Keep your sinks and faucets looking like new, and enjoy the long-lasting beauty of a Pioneer faucet – Quality that endures.
