My Kohler black porcelain cast iron sink has water stains that I cannot remove. Help! I have tried so many different cleansers, even vinegar & water, nothing works that I have found. Now, it seems some of the product has made it worse.

Removing stain from fiberglass shower base


Even caked-on iron and rust stains can be removed with a little effort. Apply your chosen cleaners to fiberglass tubs using a soft sponge, a nylon, polyester or polyethylene brush with soft bristles, or a soft cloth. Do not use abrasive cleansers, steel wool, abrasive scrubbers or scrapers on the fiberglass tub or shower surround, as these can scratch the fiberglass--in a gallon bucket: 2 tablespoons of white vinegar, 1/2 cup warm water, 1 2/3 cups of baking soda and 1/2 cup of a liquid degreasing dish detergent. Apply the solution directly to the stain and let it sit for an hour before rinsing and wiping clean.
A vinegar-and-baking soda paste applied to stained areas creates a chemical reaction that can remove the stain through the fizzing action generated by mixing backing soda with vinegar. Apply the vinegar and baking soda paste directly to the stained area and let sit for 15 to 20 minutes before rinsing and removal.

Recomended cleaning for kitchen porcelain sink


Scouring powders or cleansers contain abrasives commonly used to clean and remove stubborn stains that are slow to respond to chemical action alone.

However, use of an abrasive cleaner may scratch and damage smooth finishes such as porcelain, fiberglass or enamel making it even more difficult to clean the surface in the future.

New kitchen and bathroom fixtures do not require a scouring cleanser to clean them of soap films and body oils. Dissolving soil by soaking with the correct non-abrasive cleaner (especially a foaming type that sticks to the surface) then wiping and rinsing usually does the job.
When cleaning older, abused fixtures, choose the mildest abrasive cleaner available such as a Soft Scrub -type product or baking soda, and apply just enough that, with light pressure, the embedded soils are loosened and may be rinsed away.

Black Sink - white haze


A lot of the soaps and things that we put into our sinks can cause tiny scratches into the glaze. That's what is causing the "haze" you are describing. It's not something that can be lifted off but might be buffed out. I would recommend contacting Kohler and asking if the sink can be buffed successfully. They may be able to give you some contact numbers of people that can repair the sink if it can be. I wish I could offer some more advice but you might be heading towards a replacement instead. Good luck to you!

How to repair porcelain/cast iron sink scratches


You can repair the sink with an epoxy based porcelin kit


Epoxy will not show brush streaks it will levelitself out do not get any kits from HD or Lowes they do not harden

Go to Sherwin Williams and ask for an epoxy paint for porcelin

As for removing the under counter sink
I would try cutting through the caulk adhesive
between the bottom of the granite and cast iron
sink with a hack saw blade
I have used a diamond blade on a grinder and
cut through but it was not a granite counter top
Be extremely areful to suport the underside of the sink with 2x4 blocks to prevent stressing the granite as you cut through
Good luck
