Dust a little baking soda in the wet sink and scrub with a soft nylon brush. While buffing add more water to avoid clumping of baking soda. Rinse the sink with clean water once you're done scrubbing. To sanitize, spray the sink with vinegar and wipe with a paper towel. Use another paper towel to dry the sink completely.

Take a soft cloth with a little olive oil on it (Note: Using too much olive oil can make a sink look oily making it sticky and dirty quickly). Wipe your sink with the cloth, then spray the sink with warm water and polish it with another cloth to make it shine like a newly installed sparkling basin!

Take a piece of orange or lemon peel and rub the entire surface of your stainless steel sink with it. This will deodorize the sink as well as help to maintain its shine for several weeks. Finish by polishing with a drop of olive oil and buff dry with a fresh paper towel.

Polish With Flour : A Very Satisfying Trick

Can flour enhance the shine of a stainless steel kitchen sink? Yes, it can! Try it and soon you will be telling your friends this nifty trick. First of all, clean the sink using a hot soapy water or kitchen cleaner, then dry the sink using a clean paper towel. Cover one side of your kitchen sink with a thick dusting of flour. Take a soft cloth or paper towel to rub the sink with flour like waxing a car. Keep scrubbing; don’t forget to polish the rim, handles and knobs of the sink, and watch it sparkle! Remove excess flour by buffing repeatedly.
