As you say all is right But mention something like don't put oily container in it. Otherwise you can use lemon to do shiny sink. It will help you for long time.

According to me you can clean your kitchen’s sink with using detergent powder and hot water. You also can use some cleaner such as baking soda and scrub to make it shiny.

Every time I see all the effort people put in to cleaning things I always think to myself... if I had to do all that, I'd say the hell with it and quit. lol People make things really hard when cleaning really is so simple since the Magic Eraser came out. Magic Eraser... water... done.

Just an fyi MCG... try not drying or wiping the sink or shower or what ever you use the Magic Eraser on. Use this rule... always rinse within 30 seconds... don't clean the whole shower, just 1 wall at a time... rinse and do not dry. You will see it dries spot free.

Great tip. We normally buff it all up with a tea towel after its all been bleached.

Cleaning the sink surface is should be your first step/ We basically wash dishes and food and food, grease and food particles will lead to make dirty sink. On regular basis if you are not cleaning the sink, the thorough cleanup is essential.

Thank you for you great tips, here's my tips for cleaning stainless steel appliances:

For the stainless steel faucet and sink:
1. Simply squeeze soft cleanser (I use Bar Keepers Friend) on a wet sponge.
2. With the sponge you can rub in circles on the stainless steel surface.
3. Rinse it off with water.
4. Use a dry cloth to wipe it down.
5. Wash your hands and done.
For the exterior of stainless steel appliances, like fridge, range hood and microwave:
1. Spray stainless steel cleaner (I use Zep) on stainless steel appliances.
2. Wipe it off with a paper towel.

If you have water spots on your stainless steel sink, try rubbing them a soft cloth dampened with olive oil, then buff with a dry cloth. This should not only remove water spots, but make your stainless steel sink shine like new.Never use silver cleaners or polish on your stainless steel as they may leave a stain.

I do the same as Sprintcar and the OP. I also use an all purpose cleaner, and magic eraser, and dry with paper towels. For white sinks I use chlorox clean up.
I don't use bleach in all sinks, and when using bleach, be careful of copper drains, it can discolor. Actually the only time I use the chlorox clean up is on white sinks.
Can't live without magic erasers! A word about comet, softscrub etc, they leave a residue and make extra work. I don't use those products.

Barkeepers Friend ( I prefer the liquid and a non-scratch scrubby) for a shiny stainless steel sink and Mr. Clean Magic Eraser removes stains from white porcelain sinks.

But this homemade cleaners are not effective for long terms... So, I use Hydra grease-eater liquid to maintain my sink. This Bio chemical helps in removing blockage, bad odour, fat and oils.

The first step is to clean the surface of the sink. As we usually wash food and dishes in the sink, food particles and grease will make your sink dirty. A thorough clean up is necessary after everyday's work.

Sprint, do you not find the use of magic erasers gets a bit expensive? Even the cheapest ones that I can find are over 50 cents per piece, and they disintegrate quite quickly, so I'd imagine you'd need 2-4 per household. At 2 per house, 3 houses per day, that is $3/day for just one team of cleaners, $60 per 20 day work month! I like them, but they're more of a treat for me! Our own cleaning products work just as well and as quickly, provided product is given time to sit and do it's thing before tackling with a reusable sponge. The product costs less than $10/m per cleaner.
