Unexpected Secret Weapon That Makes Stainless Steel Shine

Having trouble getting your stainless steel appliances (specifically your sink) to shine without the aid of store-bought cleaners? Try this easy trick from Apartment Therapy that will make your appliances look like new for just a few pennies:

After cleaning your sink with a paste of baking soda and warm water, dry the sink out completely and shake in some flour. We use roughly 1/4 cup, though to be honest it’s not really a measuring thing more of a dump a little out and call it good, kind of thing. Simply buff your sink with a soft cloth rag and keep at it until your sink is glistening. Wipe out leftover flour with your towel and shake into your compost bin or trashcan. It’s as easy as that.
