I LOVE our new utility sink. I posted a wanted ad on Craigslist and within an hour, a nice man told me he had one. It is from the 1950s (we think) and was very dirty. With some Bar Keepers Friend and a putty knife I was able to get it clean.
I also moved all my cleaning supplies, brooms and mops to the laundry room (they had been stored in a kitchen cabinet). What a nice change.
It has been great for rinsing out painting tools, watering plants, soaking white towels and general cleaning.
