Flour. It’s not just for baking anymore.
This week, The Kitchn shared an unexpected use for flour: a sink polisher.
In a few simple steps, your stainless steel sink can be as shiny as new, perfect for impressing dinner guests or future buyers.
"In my own home, I use this trick once a month. The flour buffs the micro-grooves in the sink’s surface and also pulls out residual dirt and grime that your basic sponge and soap can’t get to. It just makes things feel extra special," writes The Kitchn’s Sarah Rae Trover.
Simply wash the sink as usual — with either your standard kitchen cleaner or hot soapy water — then buff it try with a clean towel.
Next, cover half or one side of your sink with a thick dusting of flour.
Start buffing. Using a paper towel or soft cloth to buff the flour into the sink and all its grooves, the rim, drain, knobs and handles.
Do it again. Repeat with the other half of the sink. Buff and remove any excess flour.
