Put a bottle of inexpensive (read, cheap) White Vinegar in a spray bottle. Put a bottle of inexpensive (yep) peroxide in another spray bottle. After meals and clean-up have been done, spray a light mist of the vinegar over all surfaces, including your sink, and wipe off. Then spray a light mist of peroxide over everything and wipe that off. The acid in the vinegar kills billions of bacteria and germs, the peroxide kills millions of bacteria & germs and removes slight odor of vinegar.
You now have a sink that would pass a Food Service inspection.
Don't forget the faucet and faucet handles!
Store bottles under the sink where it is dark. Constant exposure to light breaks down the peroxide into plain water.
I use a Misto sprayer instead of cooking spray. It's really good for giving veggies a light olive oil glaze for roasting, spraying a light mist of oil on salad or meat, and spraying my pans before I stir fry. You know you're using a good quality oil, because you pick it and fill it yourself!
You can find Misto spray cans at Bed, Bath, and Beyond and online at Amazon. I've seen them occasionally at our local Target. I imagine any real kitchen supply store would stand a good chance of carrying them.
