What is it....enamel, stainless steel..???

If it's enamel (which is what I have in my kitchen) fill the sink with hot water and a cup or two of automatic dishwasher granules. Swish it around to dissolve the granules. Then add about a cup of bleach. Let it sit overnight and you will be amazed at how white your sink is!

I do this about twice a month. As a bonus, I add socks and other grungy whites to the water and by morning I have a gleaming white sink and gleaming white socks LOL!!

Have a great day!

I don't either LOL (well, I HAVE a dishwasher, but it's not hooked up so I don't use it!), but I keep a box of dishwasher soap on hand....it is the BEST bleaching product. I use dishwasher granules to whiten my laundry, the sink....lots of stuff. Well worth the couple of bucks for a box (just get the generic *brand*...doesn't have to be anything fancy-shmancy!)
