"The counters
-To remove juice, coffee or tea stains, scrub vigorously with a paste of baking soda and water. Let set for 1/2 hour, wipe it up with a wet sponge. [Personally, I'd just use bleach!]

All-purpose kitchen cleaner
-Try trisodium phosphate (TSP). It is available at paint and hardware stores, and it is a fantastic cleaning agent. Follow directions very carefully. If the mixture is too strong, it can remove paint.

The sink
For a sparkling white porcelain sink, place paper towels across the bottom of sink and saturate with household bleach. Let sit for half an hour or so.
-Sprinkle cream of tarter on a damp cloth to clean porcelain surfaces. This method also removes rust.
-Sprinkle automatic dishwasher crystals on a wet sponge and scrub. This also works well on bathtub rings.
-Rub stainless steel sinks with lighter fluid if rust marks appear."
