Do you have white countertops or a white sink? A white surface with an absolutely impossible stain? Well, I certainly did, up until today. Like many of you, I live in a (rental) home with cheap white countertops and a cheap white double sink. After only three months, the sink in this fairly new house turned from sparkly new white to a disgusting collection of brown stains. 

I scrubbed and scrubbed. Used every possible cleaning method, but still those brown stains would not come out of our white sink and counter. I was almost completely convinced that these stains would never come out, and that I would be paying a hefty replacement fee to the rental company. Desperate to find the solution, I scoured the interwebs. (After all, if the internet doesnt know, then who will?) And suddenly I came across several stories about a miracle cure.

A miracle cure?? Yup. And it’s simpler than you might think. In fact, you probably have it lying in your cupboard right now. What’s it called?


Yup, that silver polish stuff. I admit, I was skeptical at first, thinking my stains were probably worse than those of the housewives who’d used Tarn-X. But I gave it a try anyway. And here is the result, in photos, so you can see the evidence.
