In case you are having trouble with the musty smell in your kitchen sink, perhaps you are having a problem with mildew infestation. This type of problem is quite easy to solve and prevent as long as early detection is done. Although this may be an easy task for many people, some are having a hard time detecting the problem. Learning how to identify a mildew attack is very important and offers a huge advantage to any homeowner especially when it comes to keeping the house clean and smelling fresh.

Cleaning and getting rid of mildew smell on sinks should be done regularly in order to prevent the problem from coming back. Keep in mind that prevention is always better than cure especially when it comes to this type of issue.

–Clean and Clear – as mentioned above, clean the sink as much as possible and remove anything that gets in your way. Before you can get rid of the smell, you need to get rid of the molds and mildews that are present on your sinks. You can use standard cleaning operations such as the use of detergent and a squeegee to wipe off any of the buildups on the surface of the sink. Conduct the same process for several times until you have completely got rid of the problem.

–Tea Tree Oil – deodorize the sink using tea tree oil. You can also use cinnamon oil as an alternative if you do not have the tea tree oil. If you are using concentrated oils, make sure that you are wearing protective gears for the hands, eyes, and nose as much as possible to prevent any accidents in the process. Keep in mind that concentrated oils can cause irritations on your skin and eyes which will result to more problems in the long run.

–Heat – if you have a hair blower, point it towards the sink at a distance of three inches just above the surface. The heat of the blower will provide more strength to the smell of the concentrated oil which will go down to the bottom of the sink as well as to the pipeline. In return, you can expect a refreshing odor of tea tree after you are done with the heating process. Be very careful though as this can cause injuries in case you handle it improperly.

–Wash with Detergent – although tea tree oil is good for deodorizing a mildew infested sink, an oily sink is not appropriate as it does leave a greasy and messy feeling especially when you are washing plates, forks, spoons, knives, and other stuffs we use in the kitchen. The best thing to do is to use a soap or detergent and wash off the oil by using a squeegee. Repeat the process and use the cleansing solution on the squeegee until you are satisfied with the result.
