Cleaning the house {Kitchen sink}

Hello everyone!  Hope you all had a great 4th of July weekend!
After a week of hosting parties, cooking or barbecuing we probably have a house to clean now.  I know that's nobody's favorite task but with a few tips it doesn't have to be that bad!
Did you know that your kitchen sink might have more bacteria than your toilet?  I know, pretty disgusting if you ask me.  Luckily there are some super-duper easy steps to clean and disinfect

First make sure the sink is not clogged.  There's a simple way to fix that: Baking soda + Vinegar

Also, vinegar is great to disinfect!  Pour a little directly on sink, you can also put some in a spray bottle to make sure it covers every area of it, let it sit for few minutes and then rinse. Polish with baking soda and a little bit of dish soap.  Don't forget the faucet and edges and with the help of a tooth brush or cleaning brush clean inside/around the drainer too.
