This is a natural cleaning method to make your cutlery and sink shine. I had terrible black streaks on my cutlery and discovered this simple solution that works with things we keep in the home.


  1. In a shallow pan (I use my pyrex baking pan) add vinegar to soak cutlery for 10-15 minutes.
  2. Then remove each piece of cutlery and sprinkle baking soda on it. Wipe off gently using a clean dish towel. All the black stains come off beautifully!
  3. Then put cutlery into a warm soapy water bath, rinse and dry off.
  4. Your cutlery will be as shiny and clean as it was when you first purchased it!

We mixed some of this up in a spray bottle along with soapy water in a separate spray bottle to clean the stainless steel front part of our grill, it worked like a charm. Thanks!
