Polishing stainless steel sink

We have an aging as sink that I would like to revive.

Any suggestions on the best method?
Thanks in advance

Small orbital sander or multi-tool.... You will be very happy with your minimal time investment!

Start with Bar Keepers Friend to remove scratches and stains and finish with Flitz Metal Polish for a really good shine.

I just wipe it after every use and it is fine. If your thing suffered neglect (rust stains on it now) use any rust remover magic, then flush down with fresh water and you are back to full bling.
