Yes, oiling the sink will make it shine, but realize as soon as you use hot water and soap to clean something that shine is gone again. I would not use an abrasive on it, but if an old sink, then use the non-abrasive on it. Soap and water and a non-abrasive sponge if it is a new sink. I have a new stainless sink, I only use a degrease dishwashing soap and sponge to clean it. Make sure you rinse it clean after every use.
