There are fewer spots in the home that get as dirty as a bathroom sink. You may do a weekly clean, but notice that it quickly returns to its previous state as if it had never been cleaned.

Hair gathers in the drain, toothpaste sticks to the edge of the sink, and makeup residue spills every. Never make the common mistake of putting makeup down the drain!

All you need are a few simple bathroom sink cleaning tips to help you get the sparkling clean sink you want. Continue reading to learn how to clean your bathroom sink like a pro! 

Get out your Tools

To clean a bathroom sink, you’ll need a rag and general cleaner. You can make your own cleaner by mixing white vinegar with water. It’s a bit gentler than the sprays you find in stores.

The most important tool is you! A little willpower and some strong scrubbing will make the biggest difference.

Clean the Bathroom Sink and Mirror

A little-known trick to cleaning a bathroom sink is to let your faucet do the work for you. Fill up the sink with a couple of inches of hot water. After that, add in some of your cleaner or detergent. 

Take your rag and dip it in the water, then rub down the sink. If you have any extra items you need to clean, now is a good time to let them soak in the soapy water.

Using this method is more convenient than having to bring in an additional bucket with water and cleaner. It’s faster because once you’re done, you just drain the sink and give it a little scrub. There’s no additional bucket to clean.

After you’ve cleaned the sink, you can wipe down the mirror with separate cleaner.

Clean the Drain

Take out the stopper, and remove any hair and makeup residue. Doing this easy step may prevent clogging over time. It also can help eliminate nasty odors because of bacteria that build up in the drain.

No bathroom sink cleaning guide is complete without talking about cleaning the drain. It’s a gross job that no one likes but needs to be done from time to time. Avoiding it can lead to problems.

Clean the Faucet

The final step is the faucet. Find out what type of material your faucet is made out of. You don’t want to risk damaging it with improper cleaners.

Most of the time, using the same solution you did for the sink will work well on the faucet. For more stubborn grime, you can make a vinegar and water mixture that is stronger than typical cleaners.

Start Cleaning

Cleaning your bathroom sink is only the beginning. You can’t forget about the shower, floor, mirror, and toilet. All of that only covers the bathroom! You still have the rest of the house to go.

Thoroughly cleaning anything from top to bottom is a daunting task and annoying because it gets dirty again so quickly. Because of that, many people prefer to hire a professional for a deep clean every once in a while.
