Don't eat the sink cleaner
So, there's a story floating around about how if germ-sensing aliens came to our world and based their sense of where to go potty purely on germ presence, they would eliminate in our kitchen sinks and wash in our toilets. I don't know if that's true or whether it's a story meant to trigger frantic rounds of sink-scrubbing around the world, but I haven't looked at my kitchen sink the same way since. I mean... it seems plausible.
Anyway, I actually have a preferred way to scrub the ol' sink, from The Naturally Clean Home:
-1 cup baking soda
-3 teaspoons ground cinnamon
-3 drops cedar or sweet orange essential oil
Combine the ingredients in an air-tight container and shake well to combine.
Sprinkle a small amount of the powder into your sink and wipe up with a damp sponge.
I almost want to scrub the sink just to sniff this stuff. Almost.
