You would use rubbing compound -- same kind of stuff as used on autos -- there are different grits -- super fine on up, just like sandpaper. It'll tak a lot of rubbing. Probably good do a reasonable job with a buffer/etc. on a drill motor.

How to take care of stainless steel sinks?


Here I show you how to care stainless steel sinks:
  • Clean stainless steel at least once a week.
  • Always apply stainless steel cleaner/polish with a nonabrasive cloth or sponge, working with, not across, the grain.
  • Do not use steel wool, wire brushes or abrasive sponge pads. Use only non-scratch cleaning pads.
  • Cleaners containing chloride (bleach) are not recommended. If used, rinse the surface immediately to prevent corrosion.
  • Most stainless steel products will scratch from everyday use. However, these scratches will blend over time to create a unique finish.
  • Do not store open containers of cleaners or chemicals such as acids, bleach, sodium chloride, lye, toilet bowl cleaner, drain cleaner, or hard water stain removal products under your sink.
Cleaning directions listed pertain only to their corresponding material and don't seem to be meant for regulator cleansing. regulator cleansing directions for chrome and vitreous china.
Success with cleaners and procedures depends upon such factors because the hardness and temperature of the water, using exact measurements of ingredients, changes in cleaning formulas and therefore the condition of the merchandise being clean. Since there are variations at intervals these factors, Kohler cannot guarantee the effectiveness of the formulas mentioned.
Allowing water to evaporate on metal will form water deposits. To avoid this and keep your product looking beautiful, it is important to wipe the sink clean with a soft cloth after each use.

How to maintain cleaning and scratch free black sink,my sink has spots and scratches on it. how to avoid these problem


Using soft scrub or some brand similar is the best thing to use. Manufacturers reccomend only soap and water, but soft scrub is best. Be sure to never use abrasives on any fixture, it will scratch and void warranty
Kohler makes a cleaning agent for cast iron sinks, if this is what you have.

hope this helps

Stainless Steel Sink Question


s with most things, your stainless steel sink WILL scratch with use. However, over time as the sink ages, scratches will become less apparent and in fact blend into the surface. Minor scratches on the inside surfaces of the bowl may be blended into the sink by lightly rubbing a Scotchbrite pad in the direction of the finish grain. Be sure to rinse thoroughly with water and towel dry after this procedure, removing any particles left over from the Scotchbrite as you rinse.
