Sinks are often the first things people see when they walk into bathrooms. In a way, your sink’s look will set the tone for how people feel about your entire bathroom.
If the sink is clean and pretty, people will feel comfortable. If it’s grungey and reeks, they’ll probably feel like they’re in a horror movie. That’s extreme, but you get the point; Clean your sinks!
Why Does My Bathroom Sink Smell?
I don’t know you personally. You might be into some weird hobbies that damage your sink. But assuming you only use your bathroom sink for its intended purpose, it probably just smells because of crud build-up.
Soap, dirt, makeup and a whole bunch of other stuff get compacted into gunk over time and sticks in the sink and drain. The only way to make sure this doesn’t start smelling funky is to routinely clean and deodorize your sinks.
How to Unclog a Bathroom Sink
If you’re trying to avoid chemicals, there are a few options:
- Pouring boiling water over the drain
- Using baking soda and white vinegar
- Pull out the drain stopper and stick a drain clog remover tool down there to pull out the clog (This can look pretty gnarly, but it works!)
These are only a handful of possibilities, but they tend to work a decent amount of the time. If the clog is bad enough, you probably need to call a plumber.
How to Clean a Bathroom Sink
Wipe down the entire sink with a wet sponge or cloth and rinse off the debris. Spray a disinfectant cleaner on the sink and scrub it down with a cloth or sponge. Rinse and repeat as needed.
If there are spots with bad stains, then pour baking soda over them, wipe them down with a sponge/cloth, and rinse off the area.
Consistency is Key
If you want your bathroom sinks to stay clean, you basically have to perform this level of cleaning a lot. At a minimum, you should do a basic sink cleaning once per week.
