If you think you’re the only one who can’t seem to make their draining board sparkle, you’d be wrong. It’s not uncommon for your draining board to look dull and watermarked after some time, no matter how often you clean it.
But before you go to drastic measures to revamp your sink, one woman claims she’s found a way to make it look good at new. And the best part is you don’t have to go out and spend a fortune on cleaning supplies either, since you’ll probably have everything you need at home already.
Sophie Darragh posted before and after pictures to the Facebook group Hinch Army Cleaning Tips and the difference between them was astonishing. The first photo shows the metal top covered in water marks, but when she was finished with it it looked good enough to eat off of – not that we recommend it.
She said: “Hot water, fairy liquid and tin foil! Tear a bit off and scrunch it up and scrub, it gets everything off and won’t scratch! Great for things like round your taps as you can mould the foil how you want and get in little gaps! Then just anti bac after and it’s Clean. It’s simple and cheap and something everyone already has at home.”
Sophie even tested the hack on the bottom of her kitchen stools, which came up gleaming too. And a number of people praised her smart thinking.
One person said: “If I can stop reading Hinch Army cleaning tips long enough. I’m going to try this lol” Another added: “It’s good for rust too and bottom of pans”. And a third said: “Always do this to clean the bbq”. A fourth suggested using thicker foil instead of the usual foil you use to wrap your food, for best results.
