    Try using an inhome steam cleaner with a brush attachment. I had a similar issue and it worked well for me.

    I don't if this will help your situation but I made a thick paste of baking soda and bleach, smeared it on in a thick layer and let it sit for several hours. It got rid of ground in stains that couldn't be touched by cleanser.

    there are paint products for chipped sinks. If you know the brand of your sink, check their website as there are a million whites.

    Another option is to use a paste of baking soda and water. Spread it on the spots and let it sit a while. Then spray on white vinegar. It will bubble and should take off any marks, but if the sink is chipped, you may have to look at the kits to redo the finish. If you do that, it should hold up for a little while as you make a plan to replace it. There is also chip paint that might work, but I don't think that there is really anything that will fix chips so that they look brand new unless you are a professional and have experience working with these products. Wishing you the best.

    First use Barkeepers Friend. That will clean most of it. Then, run PURE CLOROX over an old rag that is over the spot and just let it sit for about an hour. That should do it.

      I was a professional home cleaner. And I always used Bar Keepers Friend, it is awesome.  Using the Clorox might work eventually but first ....put the stopper in the drain and put red cider vinegar in sink enough to cover stains about an inch, and let it soak over night. It's not as toxic as the Clorox, and vinegar works so well on many cleaning projects.

    I have tried that. It does clean it, but how about the rust, how do I fix it?
