Step 1: Clearing Out The Sink
The first thing to do is remove all dishes, cutlery, leftover food, and other objects from the sink. After that is done, look out for dirt or food particles and clear them out.

Mix a mild soap in warm water with the soft side of the sponge and scrub the sink thoroughly. Clean the soap with a soft cloth or paper towel after rinsing it.
