South Shore Plumbing Tip of the Week

Did you know that soaking your sink stoppers can work wonders in keeping your kitchen and bathroom sinks sparkling clean?

Whether it's a food debris buildup or stubborn residue, a little soak can make a big difference.


Here's a simple and effective trick: Fill a basin or bucket with warm water and add a splash of white vinegar. Place your sink stopper in the solution and let it soak for an hour or two. The natural acidity of vinegar helps break down grease and grime, while the warm water aids in loosening tough residues.

After the soak, give the stopper a gentle scrub with an old toothbrush or a soft brush to remove any remaining dirt. Rinse it thoroughly with water and pat dry before reinserting it into your clean sink.


Regular soaking not only keeps your sink stoppers looking their best but also helps maintain proper drainage and prevents unpleasant odors. A little soak can go a long way in ensuring a fresher, cleaner, and more enjoyable sink experience!


Remember, happy sinks make for happy homes!
