Anyone else take one look at their sink full of dishes and then avoid cleaning them for days?!
I actually find there is something straight up magical about a recently cleaned sink with all the dishes clean and put away (thus the epic DIY Sink Scrub I'm about to share with you). The struggle is finding the motivation to begin. Once I start doing the dishes, it takes me about 10-20 minutes and I'm done. In terms of chores cleaning my dishes is a relatively painless job that doesn't take too much time. But still - I find myself avoiding the chore for as long as humanly possible.
We moved into this super cute 800 square feet in October and since then I've been hand washing all my dishes since we sold our beautiful dishwasher (and all other kitchen appliances) with the house we owned. I'm not exactly sure when, but sometime since we've moved this nasty orange ring found it's home at the bottom of the sink.
This house is a rental so I really wanted to get that nasty orange ring off of the sink but everything I tried didn't help. I also am committed to trying every natural option first. I want our home safe from toxic chemicals that could impact my health, hormones, thyroid, etc. You can read more about the toxin free revolution here and here.
My solution finally arrived with I created a DIY Sink Scrub and IT WORKED. I also am trying to reduce plastic and waste significantly in our home this year so I reused an old glass jar that had pesto sauce in it as part of my storage for the DIY. Reuse whatever you have in your home! If you're desperate, you can find glass storage on Amazon that would work too.
