Fill the sink with hot water and a few drops of dish soap. Let the water soak for several minutes and then lightly scrub the sink with a soft cloth. This removes any dried food or dirt that may scratch the surface of the sink during the cleaning process. After scrubbing, drain the soapy water completely.
Fill the sink one-quarter full of water and pour in a small amount of vinegar. Gently scrub the stained area with a cloth or soft scrub brush. Never use steel wool on a stainless steel sink, as this damages the surface and causes discoloration.
If stubborn coffee stains remain, sprinkle a cleansing powder such as Comet onto the stained area and scrub in the direction of the grain with a soft scrub brush.
Rinse the sink thoroughly with running water and dry it with a soft, clean cloth. Make sure the sink is free of water drops which can cause rust spots over time.
