The idea did not come to me one morning when I got up (by the way who could it come to mind one morning?) But by reading the very inspiring Kitchn. In truth, the idea of ​​polishing his sink with flour seemed so absurd that I immediately liked it. I had a (dirty) sink. I had flour (clean). I couldn't help but try the experience. Polishing is not cleaning. This is not to remove traces of rust or coffee but to give a shine to your stainless steel sink which, over use, becomes a bit dull. Remember the first time you received it in your kitchen, was it not dazzling and sparkling? Well here it is, it is a question of finding this original state. So before polishing, we will have to clean it.

Step 1 Clean and dry the sink

It all depends on how well you accept the dirt. Mine is quite high so the cleaning was quick and I was satisfied with a quick passage of the microfiber. The important thing in this step is to dry your sink well so that no drop remains in the area to be treated, otherwise your flour will turn into dough. I remind you that we are in the cleaning part and not cooking recipes.

Step 2 Sprinkle the flour over the sink

This is the liberating part of cleaning: to clean, let's dirty first! For the amount of flour, I would say it is to your liking. We do as for the work plan before working with a roll of pasta, neither too much nor too little.
Here is (picture above) what I poured on my sink, a fairly reasonable amount finally.

Step 3 Sprinkle the flour over the sink

It is at this moment that the miracle occurs. As for polishing a car for example, you are going to use small absorbent paper against the walls. Like I said, the principle looks like a body scrub. There is no need to force, the thing is done with delicacy.

Step 4 Remove the excess flour

Now we must erase its last traces. Above all, do not put water in your sink, otherwise we will come back to the error of step 1. To get to the perfect condition of the last photo, you must remove the flour using absorbent paper. . Once most of the flour is removed, you can iron with a microfiber to make room for cleanliness.
To keep this polished aspect of the first day, we repeat the experience once a month which does not seem insurmountable (even for me).
A Before / After that speaks for itself, doesn't it? Finally you can still comment, we like that!
