There is nothing quite like the smell of fresh grapefruits. Many of us even have half a grapefruit for breakfast. But did you know you could use the fruit to sanitize and deep-clean your kitchen sink? It leaves behind an impeccable smell and cleanness that is lasting.

Cleaning kitchen sinks and bathtubs is an everyday chore and if you are like most people, you definitely want to have a clean and stain free kitchen sink all the time. Your solution is not far from you. The grapefruit of lemon is always at hand and in most peoples kitchens. These two can be used interchangeably, but if you want to have a lovely smell after cleaning kitchen sinks, you need to try out grapefruit with salt.

The method is so easy and has been broadcasted by even a celebrity culinary instructor Pamela Salzman.

You will need:

· 1 Grapefruit, sliced in half

· ¼ cup of kosher salt

This is how you do it.

1. Cut the grapefruit in half. A large or medium grapefruit is enough to clean your kitchen sink and bathtub entirely. The fruit is that good.

2. While holding the fruit in your hands, sprinkle an adequate amount of salt on top of the fruit. The remaining salt you can sprinkle it at the bottom of the sink or bathtub. This ensures that you have enough salt to go with the fruit for as long as you wish to keep cleaning the kitchen sink.

3. Finally, begin to clean. Scrub down the sinks and bathtubs.
