    Salt, or baking soda, or the magic eraser takes all the grunge off mine... DON'T use a scouring pad, you will sctratch the stainless steel... oh wait.. I'm assuming you have stainless steel....

    I have an old sink, maybe porcelin, or something supposed to look like it (?), and it really soaks up dirt, I found that Barkeepers Friend makes that things sparkle. It also makes my fixtures really shiny, so even if your sink is stainless steel, it's worth a shot.

    I was also going to suggest Barkeepers Friend for a porcelain sink. That stuff takes the yellowed crud build-up right out and makes the sink look great!

    i'd say wet it down, put some baking soda on it, scrub a dub and then pour some vinegar on it. worked well for me at our last place - a 90 y/o farm house, with a sink that had to be at least 50 y/o.

    plain white vinegar-

    has helped me remove some nasty tomato and mustard stains in a stainless steel sink... GL!!!

    (also, the vinegar/baking soda combo will do wonders to help flush and freshen your drains--- if you have a garbage disposal, run it with ice cubes from time to time and you'll keep it from getting too funky...)

    Citrus peels also work great for cleaning out the garbage disposal!

    if it's porcelain, bleach or comet is great. i'm usually really scared of products that contain bleach but i am so in love with the clorox bleach pen.
