  2. Wet a sponge product, such as Mr. Clean Magic Eraser, in clean water and swipe away any light stains or marks from the sink, according to the Swan Corporation.

  3. Remove the remaining stains
  4. Remove stubborn stains by sprinkling an abrasive cleaner and using a nylon scouring pad and water. Clean difficult food stains by filling the sink with equal parts of water and bleach. Let the mix sit in the sink for approximately 15 minutes. Clean the sink with a clean sponge, drain the water and rinse the sink with clear water to remove residue.
