    Stainless steel sinks a made of a lower quality stainless steel. Has some iron in it for strength. Use only stainless steel specific cleaners and not any of the combination cleaners. CLR, Lime Away, Gel drain cleaners, Bar Keepers Friend, etc. can stain some stainless steel sinks black. To clean the black will take some elbow grease. Use a soft Scotch Bright Pad (not heavy duty) and any compounding auto polish (not wax) and gently scrub in the grain direction if your sink has a grain. Meguiars Compound would be a good choice or similar. Get them at an auto parts store. Good luck and please let me know how it works out for you.
