How to Remove Aluminum Marks From a Porcelain Sink


Porcelain sinks are attractive and durable, making them a popular option in many homes. Aluminum pots or pans often leave silver-gray stains on porcelain sinks. To remove these marks, you must use a cleaning solution that is safe for the porcelain, yet strong enough to remove the aluminum marks.

Things You'll Need

  • Water
  • Baking soda
  • Glass cleaner
  • Washcloth
  • Oxygen bleach
  • Dampen the sink with water, and sprinkle a light dusting of baking soda over the aluminum marks. The water will help the baking soda adhere to the sink.

  • Scrub the marks with a washcloth and rinse the sink.

  • Spray glass cleaner onto the sink, if any marks remain. Wipe clean with a washcloth, and repeat several times until the marks show no signs of improvement.

  • Fill the sink with enough hot water to submerge the aluminum marks.

  • Pour oxygen bleach into the water, using 2 tbsp. per gallon of water used.

  • Scrub the stains with the washcloth once more and repeat until all aluminum marks are removed.
