Our kitchen is literally the heart of the home—and highly visible from just about anywhere on the first floor of our house. It’s also mostly white… and did I mention we have 3 kids and a dog? #yesiamcrazy
Our island is in the center of our kitchen; I guess you could say it’s the heart of the heart of the home? During our renovation, we decided to move our sink to the island so that the person doing dishes or cooking could be facing the living room.
The sink we chose is a large, single bowl fireclay farmhouse (aka apron) sink. It’s BIG, it’s heavy, and it’s bright white—most of the time. One perk of having a large, single bowl sink is that it can hold a LOT of dishes. And one con of having a large, single bowl sink is that it can hold a LOT of dishes… meaning the mess can pile up pretty quickly.
We’re a family prone to eating and drinking stuff that stains. Pasta sauce, soda, red wine, and coffee—all of these and more come into contact with our white sink on an almost-daily basis. So, I needed a way to keep our white sink white without any harsh chemicals. The secret weapon? Bon Ami Powder Cleanser! It’s super easy to use and it contains zero nasty chemicals—even the kids can help clean the farmhouse sink!
Enter Bon Ami, which means “good friend” in French! Bon Ami is a powder cleanser that’s safe to use in the kitchen around food, family, and pets—perfect for our family! It has simple ingredients, and it’s been used in kitchens for over a century—so gentle that you don’t even need to wear gloves when using it!
To clean your sink with Bon Ami, just sprinkle a bit onto the surface and use a wet towel or rag to wash off the stains. It’s safe to use on any non-porous surface (aka no marble or granite).
