How do you remove muriatic acid splashes from a stainles steel sink?

by Terry
My husband was using muriatic acid to clean some items in the garage and then brought items into the kitchen and splashed the acid on the stainless sink. It now has a permanent splash look. Is it possible to remove the splash stain and restore the look of the stainless to the sink?

    There are stainless polishing kits that have different grades of paste to use. A polishing wheel used on cars or a Dremel tool really helps. Doing it by hand is time consuming but can be done. If that doesn't work, early present - a new sink!

      Thank you I will try it. Good thing Christmas is around the corner in case a new sink is in order.

    You know Scotchbrite? Those green scrubby pads? There is an industrial version and it is dark red. Found a 5-pack on Amazon but it was difficult for me to find twice. Here's the title:

    Lot of 5 Red 3M Scuff Pads Scotch Brite 3M Brand

    This stuff actually removes a minute amount of metal. I find a lot of uses for them. Cut them into 1/4 or 1/8 sheet to use.
