White sinks

Any tips on keeping a white kitchen sink clean and stain free? I have the hardest time. It is not porcelain.

Best tip is to probably not put dirty dishes into the sink until you are ready to wash them. Dishes, pots and pans that sit in the sink can leave stains. Zud is a good rust remover, if that's the problem. What sort of stains are you getting?

We use rubber sink bottom covers, that keeps a lot of stuff from touching the sink surface.

Typically any mild abrasive is going to work; Zud, Bon Ami, Mr Clean Magic Eraser, Soft Scrub,....

You say it's not porcelain, but what is it? If it's solid surface a green Scotch Bright pad paired with Bon Ami, etc, will work wonders. Also, some household bleach diluted with water and allowed to sit for 15-20 minutes will whiten things up. Good luck

If it's like those fiberglass/plastic tub surrounds, my wife has had good results using 'the Works' She buys it at the dollar stores. My tub surround never would get clean for me no matter how hard I scrubbed but when we started dating she went in there with 'the works' and in 15 minutes or so it looked brand new

It is like a plastic tub surface. Without all the shininess. Really good recommendations. I'm hoping they will work. I have used most things, but totally forgot about the mr. clean magic eraser. Those things work surprisingly good. Will never go with white sinks again, that's for sure. I'll stick to stainless steel!
