One fork is all it takes for a kitchen sink to go from clean to dirty (sometimes, I’ll clean my sink and tell everyone to eat off paper towels for the rest of the day). But even worse, my pans leave scuff marks on the bottom of my enamel sink.

My foolproof method for cleaning my cast-iron kitchen sink is using Bar Keepers Friend with a Magic Eraser, which works every time. I’ve never met a scuff mark I couldn’t beat.

The first thing I do is sprinkle the powder over the bottom of my sink, and instead of using a scrub brush or rag, I use a magic eraser to rub the powder into the stains.

A follower of mine on Instagram suggested I use a sink grid. I think that’s a great idea for some people, but for me, it’s just one more thing to clean.

This method even works on stainless steel sinks!

I sure do love a clean kitchen.

Also, did you notice the marble countertops? I made those for a fraction of the cost of real marble. For the full tutorial, check out the e-book I wrote.

Do you have any kitchen cleaning hacks you’d care to share? I’d love to hear about them to see if they work for me!
