SCRUB (and I mean scrub) YOUR KITCHEN SINK.
Especially the black rubber cover that sits down inside the ring. Yes it comes out. And don't forget about the metal drain stopper. I did this last week. OMG. Thoroughly repulsive.
According to a study done by the Hygiene Council which was funded by Reckitt Benckiser, the company that makes Lysol, there are 567,845 bits of bacteria per square inch in your kitchen sink drain.
Back in November I wrote a piece entitled, "Do you know what's cooking in your kitchen?" Go back and read it. I guarantee you'll make time to clean out your sink this week!
Supplies you'll need:
1) Scrub brush
2) Old toothbrush (make sure to flip back the flaps on the rubber stopper. Beware - it will be gooey.)
3) Rubber gloves
4) Clorox Bleach (or a cleaner that you feel comfortable with that is strong enough to cut the grime)
