By using the toothbrush you can clean the caulk seal and all around the sink. Scrub well with baking soda. Rinse and then repeat the process. Soak some paper towels in vinegar and cover the entire sink with them. Let them sit for 20 minutes then throw away the paper towels. With a sponge dipped into water and soap, clean the surface of the sink, then rinse thoroughly.
