Bathroom sink stained

The cream colored sink and countertop in the bathroom of our Tradewind is stained a dark/brownish color. Does anyone know of a good cleaner to remove this stain? Is this even possible? If not what other soulutions could I pursue?

Bathroom sink stained

We used Epoxy spray paint on our sink and tub. Haven't had any problems with it. Be sure and use a mask and good ventilation! Really does a good job.

Good Luck,

I used a "very" fine sand paper then polished and it looked like new.
Don't remember what I polished with but I think the sand paper was 600 grit.

We sanded ours down and used the Krylon Fusion paint on our sinks, counters, and tub in the bathroom. Applied some clearcoat after it was dry. We use it all the time and havent had any problems with it. There are some pictures somewhere here on the forums.

Two-part expoxy paint is the ticket. It can be sprayed or brushed on. Preparation is important. I used Tough as Tile, available at Lowes for about $25.

Thumbs up Thanks for the posts! Very helpful!

Great, now I know what to do for my sink. Thanks Chuman for the thread and all you folks for paint solutions!

Save money and don't do as I did buying plastic cleaner (Cascade Plastic Booster did not work!) supposed to get hard water stains out it did not work...

Another paint choice

I used a Por 15 product on all our bathroom plastics to make them white instead of beige. It is a very strong paint used in marine applications and actually cures in damp conditions. If you Google Por or Por 15 I think you will find the website. These products are used frequently with auto restorations. Many Airstream restorations use the Por 15 black on the frames and ribs.

good luck

The plastic the sink, tub and counter is an ABS plastic with the color throughout the plastic rather than just on the surface. So you may be able to sand out the stain.

If you decide to paint I recommend a 2 part epoxy paint vs. Fusion. I spoke to Fusion folks and they do not recommend this application. I used "Tough as Tile" and am very satisfied.

FYI I spoke with Tough as Tile and they also did not recommend this application. For that matter I have spoken with other companies about using other products in an Airstream including flooring. Seems like they all have the same script "we do not recommend our product for this application".

Garry,

I used 600 grit, then 1500 grit on mine today. Looks a lot better than it did!
