It's a Dirty Job...

It is a dirty job, but someone has to do it!  I learned this trick from a contractor years ago but I rarely gather up the energy to do it.

When your stainless steel sink is looking dull, a good way to spiff it up is to scrub it with wads of tin foil.  This makes a mess of your hands, unfortunately!  And it a ton of work!  But it works.  Takes off all that tarnish.

And can you believe my Sugar!  She has never been this close, by choice, to another cat since I got her!  She is actually interested in a friend.


  1. Will you come to my house and do that? Great tip, Sarah... Thanks!

  2. That's a great tip! I plan on replacing my chipped sink with a stainless one soon, I'll be using that foil trick often :) Thank you!

  3. Thanks for the tip! My sink looks awful!

  4. Sarah, have you ever tried baking soda? Works wonders! And is not so messy!

  5. Really, scrubbing with foil removes the tarnish? I will have to remember that trick. Very cool.

    I can see you are a cat lover :-) I have a 15-year old cat named Panny. She is a wonderful cat.

  6. Great tip. And I love the "somebody has to do it" because I'm always the

  7. Deana - yeah....

    Andrea & Pam - it really works swell

    Renata - I'll try baking soda on the other sink tomorrow. Maybe it will be easier!

    Velva - another cat lover! My Miss Sugar is a rescue cat and I have had her 5 or so years. She has issues but is so-o-o darned cute! We are getting there!

  8. What a great tip!! Thanks!!

    Your cats are too cute.

  9. Memoria - the black and white is my friend's cat. Sugar doesn't usually make friends. She usually chases another cat out of the house!

  10. Great tip but big job. I tackled that once and I thought my arms were going to fall off.

    Just to let you know the sun in Victoria gave wasy to a bigh wind stom; horrible Easter weekend; anxious to get back to northern Ontario where it is 20 degrees.
    Happy Easter.

  11. What a great tip! I'll have to try that this week.

  12. Sage - I heard the weather was not good in Victoria. That's too bad. As for the arms, you are absolutely right!

  13. Hi,
    Thanks for following me back,
    you have a great blog (found you thru Sage blog)...
    I will read older posts now, and hope to share a lot with you!

  14. Merci Sarah pour l'astuce, j'ai un évier en acier inoxydable et c'est très dur de le garder brillant.
    Joyeuses pâques.
    J'ai encore un prix pour toi.
    A bientôt.

  15. Aw, what a cute pictures of Miss Sugar! Happy Easter!
