Learn how to clean a white porcelain farmhouse sink with an easy and inexpensive DIY cleaning paste!

We've had our white porcelain farmhouse style sink for almost five years now, and I still love its look and function! It looks so beautiful in our vintage industrial style kitchen in our country home, plus it's massive and has held everything from babies at bath time to massive loads of pots and pans.
I find the sink quite easy to clean, and now it's even easier with my Dremel Versa High Speed Power Cleaner! Let me show you how I make my white farmhouse sink look like new with a simple DIY cleaning paste and the Versa.
First, make a simple paste by mixing some hydrogen peroxide into baking powder. Put the baking powder in a bowl, and keep adding in the hydrogen peroxide until you reach a paste consistency. This stuff is great! It seems to take rust stains and scuff marks out of my white porcelain sink just as good as a store-bought cleaner does. It also works well to scrub tough grease stains off of pots and pans!
Next, brush the paste all over your sink with a pastry brush and let it sit for about 10-15 minutes. After that, take a non-scratch scouring pad and scrub away all of the gunk.
If you want extra scrubbing power, here's where the Dremel Versa comes in:
It's a high-scrubbing tool that's compact in size, making it perfect for household cleaning projects just like this sink. You can buy it at Home Depot, Lowe's or Amazon, and it comes with several attachments for all sorts of cleaning applications. It has a USB charging system, and then once it's charged you simply unplug it and you're ready to go!
The Dremel Versa comes with:
- 4VMax Dremel Power Cleaner Tool
- Power Cleaner Heavy-Duty Pad (1)
- Power Cleaner Eraser Pad (1)
- Power Cleaner Non-Scratch Pad (1)
- Power Cleaner Bristle Brush (1)
- Backing Pad
- Splash Guard, Charger
You can use it wet or dry (it's water-resistant), and indoors or outdoors. Here, I'm using it on my sink with the splash guard down as I give the sink a good scrubbing with the non-scratch scouring pad attachment. This thing works like a charm on the stubborn stains and spots on my white sink!
After you've scrubbed your sink with the DIY cleaner, rinse it with water and a soft microfiber cloth to polish it.
Between the DIY cleaner and the Dremel Versa, I can get my sink looking like this...
... even after a week of piled up pots, messy-kid hand washing, and rinsing dozens of veggies and garden flowers!
Now you know my secret!

Hi there. The image says baking soda but the directions say baking powder I imagine both might work
