A Shiny Sink

Have you ever used FlyLady? If you have trouble keeping up with all the things there are to keeping your home, you might want to go on over to One of the first things she will have you do is "shine your sink". Basically this means to give it a good cleaning, and then keep it clean! This means no piling dirty dishes in the sink. The only exception would be if you were putting them there to soak while you enjoy a meal with your family. Otherwise, keep them out! To keep your sink sparkling clean, you are supposed to wipe it down in some way every day. I wipe mine down with a homemade all-purpose cleaner every night after I wash the dishes (for the last time). A shiny kitchen sink is so important because it encourages you to keep the rest of the kitchen clean, and the rest of your home! I wanted to share some pictures of clean kitchen sinks to inspire you (& me!) to keep the dirty dishes out of there & washed. I hope you enjoy this.
