Porcelain sinks are supposed to be white, crisp, and sparkling clean. However, keeping them stain free is easier said than done as they tend to stain very easily. But cleaning your porcelain kitchen sink should not be a daunting task. I have some excellent and yet easy hacks that I use to keep my lovely farmhouse sink looking sparkling clean. In this post, I share with you three simple steps that you can use to clean your white porcelain kitchen sink with minimal effort.
I don’t deep-clean my farmhouse porcelain kitchen sink on a daily basis. Just a quick wash with dishwashing liquid twice a day does the job most of the time.
But occasionally, say two to three times a week, I’ll give my farmhouse porcelain sink a good deep-clean to make sure it stays looking lovely and fresh.
How To Clean A White Farmhouse Porcelain Sink
To clean your white porcelain kitchen sink, you will need a few supplies. You’ll most likely already have most of the supplies in your kitchen, but I’ll list them here anyway to help you gather everything:
- A pair of rubber gloves
- Dish brush or soft dish sponge
- Dishwashing liquid
- Baking soda
- Lemon juice
- Orange Essential Oil
1. Cut Through Grease With Dishwashing Liquid and Hot Water
Now to get started, you will want a clean kitchen sink that’s free from grease. And to achieve this, start by wetting down your entire porcelain sink with water.
Add a bit of dishwashing liquid to your brush or sponge and scrub your sink gently to cut through any greasy mess. Carefully rinse with hot water.
2. Remove Stains With Baking Soda and Lemon Juice
Baking soda is excellent for removing stubborn stains and watermarks. It’s non-toxic and slightly abrasive making it safe and yet super effective for cleaning white porcelain sinks.
Sprinkle a generous amount of baking soda all over your sink and let it sit there for about 5-10 minutes. Dip your brush or sponge in some lemon juice (lemon juice is effective at removing rust stains) and gently scrub the sink in a circular motion to get rid of any stains. Rinse with water.

3. Polish with Orange Essential Oils
Finally, when your white porcelain sink is nice and clean, you want to polish it and prevent it from easily getting stains. And you do this by coating your sink with a few drops of orange essential oil.
The orange essential oil creates a thin layer of protection that keeps stains from reaching the surface of the sink. What’s more, it leaves your sink and the rest of your kitchen smelling great!
