From the blogger: "So, as you all know, I have been working diligently in my basement for the past couple of months. For the bathroom, I had set aside my grandparents’ old bathroom cabinet and this gorgeous, ancient, American Standard, cast iron sink! It was in one of the sheds and though I don’t know exactly how old it is, my guess is between 40-50 years. When I posted about our kitchen sink base, I had lots of questions on how to clean cast iron because, like this one, it was SO GROSS. So, I rolled up my sleeves and took lots of pictures of the process this time! This is how I removed stains from and cleaned cast iron sinks that are covered in total nasty! But first, check out this amazing sink!"

- baking soda
- white vinegar
- scrubby brush
DIY Project Instructions
Thoroughly clean the sink with a DRY cloth firstly, get the worst of it you can before you add liquid to the situation.
Dust a cup of baking soda in the bottom of the sink (close the drain) then sprinkle in a cup of vinegar so everything suds up and get to scrubbing.
With very hot water go over everything and do the best you can getting it as clean as you can adding vinegar and baking soda as you go.
Thoroughly dry and inspect sink.
For the really tough stains that are still there make a paste of baking soda and vinegar and cover the stain for 24-48 hours before scrubbing again.
