    Make a paste of baking soda and water, let it set at least 1/2 hour. Take a clean microfiber cloth and gently clean the stain off. You can repeat if needed.

    Hi! Have you cleaning the spots with toothpaste? I know it sounds counterintuitive, but, I usually start with what the stain or spot is to loosen it. Toothpaste dries like concrete. A little toothpaste and warm water should loosen it enough to really clean it. Good luck and stay safe!

    Hi Ken, Mix up a paste of baby powder and acetone and apply a thick layer on the toothpaste stain. Cover with plastic wrap. You can tape it down with painter's tape or masking tape. Leave for 24 hours, before removing the plastic wrap. Wait for the talc and acetone mixture to dry and harden before removing and then wipe down. Make sure to test in a small area first.

    Fill with water and a little Wash soap. Let the water sink into the toothpaste and soften it. Then clean in the normal way.

    I cleaned my daughter's with rubbing alcohol and it works well.

    Remove stubborn stains with isopropyl alcohol. Pour 1 tbsp. of alcohol directly onto a soft, absorbent cloth and wipe the stain away. No need to rinse -- the alcohol will evaporate, leaving a clean, sparkling surface behind.


    Do not use abrasive cleansers, steel wool pads or hard-bristled brushes to clean acrylic sinks. Acrylic is lightweight and durable, but it does tend to scratch. Should a scratch occur, fill in the abrasion with a light layer of automotive paste wax and buff with a soft cloth until the damage is no longer visible.

    You can use bleach, but dilute it first and rinse thoroughly afterwards. You can also try alcohol and/or peroxide hydrogen. Still, there are times that nothing works, and that is when you need professional cleaning services. There is nothing shameful in this. There are times that neither me nor my wife can deal with the stains, and the good thing is that we know who to call. The cleaning company we call when something like this happens is great. The people who work there are some of the nicest people, and they really know how to do their job.

    For acrylic sinks, you can use a non-abrasive cleaner like dish soap, baking soda and water, or a white vinegar/water solution. For stainless steel sinks, use a stainless steel cleaner that is specifically made for the type of sink
