Cleaning Bathroom Sink Cracks

  • Transcript

    LESLIE: Alright. Now we’re going to head over to Tennessee where Patricia is dealing with some – I guess they’re cracking up bathroom sinks. What’s happening?

     
    PATRICIA: Hi. I’ve got these ugly cracks in my – I guess they’re like a resin sink; the counter and the sink is one piece.
     
    TOM: (overlapping voices) Yes.
     
    LESLIE: (overlapping voices) OK, gotcha. It’s like molded.
     
    TOM: Yep.
     
    PATRICIA: Yeah, it’s molded. And even if I clean them, they quickly fill back up with mildew.
     
    TOM: Yeah.
     
    PATRICIA: And they’re very ugly.
     
    TOM: Yeah, that’s like a composite kind of molded sink and they – the glaze on them does crack and it’s really not something that you can fix. It’s just kind of, Patricia, the way they wear, unfortunately.
     
    LESLIE: There’s no like patching compound?
     
    TOM: No, no. I’ll tell you what works good as a cleaning – to clean it is Bar Keepers Friend.
     
    PATRICIA: OK.
     
    TOM: Alright? It’s like a scouring powder but it does a really good job of getting that mildew out of the cracks in places like that.
     
    PATRICIA: OK.
     
    TOM: (overlapping voices) Also good for solid surfacing materials like Corian sinks and that sort of thing; makes it really white and bright.
     
    PATRICIA: OK. Well, thank you.
     
    TOM: You’re welcome, Patricia. Thanks so much for calling us at 888-MONEY-PIT.
