How to remove a Stain in my antique porcelain sink?

DeeHms33655408Sandy Manney


Unfortunately I left a S O S pad (like spun steel) in the outdoor sink. It had started storming and I left. It has left a black stain. Any ideas on how to remove stain? Thank you. Love this site. I have learned so much.

    Hey there, ok I had an ancient cast enamal sink that, at one point, had been white. What worked best for me was a mix of baking soda, hydrogen peroxide and vinegar. Create a paste and then leave the paste on the stain for at least 48 hours and than scrub with bleach and REALLY hot water. I repeated this three times and my sink almost looks like new.

    Try Barkeepers Friend. Use a soft rag and rub in circles. Rinse well.

      Thank you. I’ve tried the mr clean. Did not work. May work using one of the other suggestion. I’ll try that.

    Bar Keepers friend mixed with baking soda. Let it sit for about an hour and gently scrub it off.
