Let me introduce you to Bar Keepers Friend.
BKF is a cleanser and polish with mild abrasives. It can be used in your kitchen, bathroom, for laundry, general household cleanup and for auto cleaning.
My apologies for the side-ways photo; when it uploads, it rotates like this! The condition of the sink tubs above is what they looked like following me wiping them down with a Clorox wipe. Sideways or not, I hope you can see the lines and markings that will soon be cleaned!
Directions for using Bar Keepers Friend as printed on the product: Sprinkle BKF on a thoroughly wet cloth and rub gently. If applying BKF directly on metal, porcelain or plastic, make certain surface is wet - then rub gently until rust or discoloration disappears. Rinse. For difficult stains, rust spots, tarnished surfaces...make a paste by adding a few drops of water to BKF. Let paste remain on stain no longer than one minute before rubbing. Rinse immediately.

Sparkly clean sinks!
Yea for clean white sinks again!
I will post a disclaimer that this cleaning product contains oxalic acid and should be kept away from children. While I do try to use more 'green' cleaning solutions, sometimes I just commit to using stronger products to get the job complete. I used this product when my son was taking a nap and had it secured in a location my child is not able to access by the time he awoke. As always, please be safe when using any cleaning products!
Let me know if you use Bar Keepers Friend! I highly recommend it for those tough stains and rust spots!
Have a great afternoon!
