What I really like most about everyone that reads my posts is that most of you have at least something to add in the comments. Sometimes it is a happy memory I have reminded you of, and sometimes it is just to say that you enjoyed it. (both are deeply appreciated) After doing my blog post “Top 10 Cats in Sinks” people were telling me all sorts of stories about the animals they have seen in sinks, some filled with water, some not, but always a rather happy looking animal in a ceramic sink. So without further delay…

10 – ROLL-UP,ROLL-UP Just hook one out of the sink and look at the number on its belly!
Cleaning Tip: Try to bleach the sink every few days to keep the porcelain nice and white, but if you hate the smell of bleach try different “flavours” of it as I am sure there is one you will like.
9 – “why does your hair look like you have been crawling around in a hedge!?”
Cleaning Tip: Do you have a stubborn stain in the kitchen sink? Well just soak the stained area in vinegar and water, then after 30 minutes, scrub the area until cleaned! This works like a treat apparently.
8 – “Don’t look at me like that! That dustbin attacked me and trapped me inside of it!
Cleaning Tip: Do you really hate using bleach? Then try using baking soda! Make a mixture of baking soda and water. into a sort of paste and scrub your skin like there’s no tomorrow! You will be amazed at the results.
7 – “I can clearly hear you talking about how dirty I am you know!”
Cleaning Tip: Vinegar, Baking Soda, and water mixed together make a great cleaning paste, but as a side bonus it also makes a wonderful air freshener and can keep the room fresh and the sink clean for days on end!
6 – Have you not heard the saying? It is happy as a pig in sh…eesh that water is cold!!!
Cleaning Tip: Do you live in a hard water area and suffer from terrible limescale? Then all you need to do to get rid of it is to rub white wine vinegar into the main affected area, then cover that whole area in toilet paper, then dry for 20 mins, clean rinse and you will be amazed at the results.
5 – “OPM said heaven was a half-pipe, they must not have known about sinks!”
Cleaning Tip: Never, ever use a coarse scouring material as this might scratch the surface, keep thinks like brillo pads for the pots and pans, not the sink its self.
4 – “Stop calling me cute, I am very angry and worked up!”
Cleaning Tip: Want to make that white sink really shine? Then use paper towels to buff them! This will rub in any cleaner you have used and created a smooth, polished finish.
3 – “If I am honest, it is not as comfortable as the cat makes it look.”
Cleaning Tip: It doesn’t matter how much you pay for it, 99% of the time any branded or unbranded sink cleaner over the basin and then scrubbed with a non-abrasive cloth will get any sink clean!
2 – “If I go down this metal hole, will I end up in Wonderland?!?”
Cleaning Tip: Cleaning a pure white sink doesn’t need to be stressful, every evening just before you go to sleep give it a quick rinse with some soap and if you keep doing that no major mess or stains will ever build up! It is only through lack of consistent cleaning that the build-up will happen.
1 – “The cat in that hat couldn’t make it, I am the lynx in your sinks”
Cleaning Tip: Always try to remember to rinse out your white sink after every use, this will help keep food coloured stains at bay and make overall cleaning of the sink much less hassle.
