    I use just dish soap and scotch brite brand scrubbie. Make sure you scrub in the direction of the grain.

    The way that worked best for me was a combination of dish soap and bleach. I sprayed it on, waited a bit and rinse it off wiping with a cloth.

    I like the powered products.....cameo, bonami, baking soda. Take a damp cloth put a bit of baking soda on it and scrub going with tooling marks in the sink. Rinse well, dry with a paper towel so water spots won’t show.

    I have a double stainless steel sink that is probably over 60 years old (don't know for sure) I find it very easy to clean with whatever powdered cleanser I have under my sink. But after reading so many posts here on hometalk I realize that people have very different water situations and our water here is soft and does not stain things, so cleaning is relatively easy and we don't get rings in our toilets etc.

    Don't know where I got this tip. Use regular baby oil and a cloth. I've been doing this on all my stainless steel appliances & sink and it really works.

    Bar Keepers Friend ... the liquid product. Absolutely the best. Use in bathroom for sink and shower too.

    Use any of the cleaning products named above. They are all good ones. For the polishing, use olive oil or vegetable oil on the corner of a dishcloth. Then use the rest of the dry dishcloth to buff the sink, hardware and tile and countertops. That’s where the shine comes from. Best wishes! ☺️

    I used to have a stainless steel sink. I abused the crap out of it during renovation. I simply scrubbed it with bar keepers, and sprayed it with stainless steel polish.
