Kitchen cleaning - how to clean your kitchen sink with lemon peel

When it comes to kitchen cleaning, few things in the cooking area are coated in as much bacteria as your kitchen sink. Sure, your waste disposal bin might have a compelling case, but at least rubbish bags are disposed of at least once a week.

Since water and dish wash liquid are applied to our kitchen sink everyday, we ignore the fact that it's still far from wholly sanitized.

When such things as a raw chicken is placed in your sink, it gives off all sorts of bacteria. Likewise most other animal products.

The great thing about using lemon peel is that it requires very little effort. Simply retain the accompanying lemon peel of every lemon consumed or used, placing it in your fridge's air tight container after sealing in a bag. The solution that follows is simple to make too.

Step 1 - Prepare your lemon peel
Grab a large bowl, ideally porcelain instead of plastic. Place all the lemon peel you have accumulated in the bowl, spreading it around evenly with your fingers. Place the bowl to one side for now. Steps 2, 3 and 4 describe the contents of the solution we will proceed to make. Prepare a clean 4-cup size measuring jug and place the following into it.

Step 2 - Add 1 tablespoon of baking soda
Baking soda is highly absorbent and will therefore form a cleaning paste alongside the lemon juice introduced in the following step. This paste will then afford you a greater sense of direction in your efforts at scrubbing since you will be able to visibly locate and cover otherwise faint areas.

Step 3 - Add 1 cup of squeezed lemon juice
It helps to have lemon derivative in liquid form in order to increase the span of your sanitizing effort. While the lemon peel is a great nutrient-giving scrub brush, it could do with a bit of lubricant, and few lubricants are as compatible as its own cousin in lemon juice.

Step 4 - Add a teaspoon of sea salt
It's crucial you add sea salt, but not regular table salt. Why? Because regular salt is highly processed and so its use would hardly assist proceedings. By contrast, sea salt is natural, if the its name didn't give that away already.
What's more is that sea salt has properties that are exceptional in flushing out a liquid solution. In the case of the mix we're preparing, it's crucial that all the bacteria present is flushed out properly across the latter rinsing stages.
Indeed, in the human body, sea salt helps get rid of mucus and parasites, among other things. Be assured in the knowledge it's therefore performing similarly in your kitchen sink.

Step 5 - Mix the solution
With all the features in place, it is now time to mix our solution. Simply grab a wooden spoon, in order to achieve an optimal consistency, stirring for a good 60 seconds.

Step 6 - Scrub with lemon peel
Proceed to recover your initial bowl of lemon peel, placing it next to the sink alongside your mix cup. Dip each piece of peel in your solution, submerging each bit of skin for 30 seconds at least.

Proceed to pre-wipe the entire area with that lucky first piece of peel. Scrubbing intensity should be built up gradually, so avoid any RSI potential through only applying maximum pressure as your peel supply runs out.

Step 7 - Rinse thoroughly
Dilute any remaining solution in your mug with water, ideally distilled water. Put your kitchen sink's plug in. Proceed to pour universally in a windscreen-wiping motion from left to right across your sink.

Repeat this motion another 9 times, using distilled water in all refills, before releasing the plug.

There's no need to apply boiling water at the end because it will damage the affect of the lemons which rank among the best in being able to sanitise anything.
