How to get a stainless steel sink clean?

I used to have a cleaner who left our kitchen sink absolutely sparkling. However, now left to my own devices, nothing I have tried makes it look as clean or as sparkly.

Any ideas anyone?

What have you tried so far? My favourite thing is Shiny Sinks rubbed on hard to a dry sink, then rinsed thoroughly (with more rubbing), then the whole thing buffed dry. I'm in a hard water area and this works for me.

I find cream cleaner (Cif or supermarket own brand equivalent - Tesco do a stripey one which is fine) rubbed on then rinsed and polished is the best. Brings the taps up really nicely too.

I love bar keepers friend

I get in the supermarket with the shopping. Love it and it lasts for ages (or maybe I don't use it often enough?? grin)

I wipe down my sink and draining board, dry it all and then rub in some glass cleaner. Looks lovely

I have found that a teaspoon of bicarbonate of soda works miracles. If you use it with white vinegar it gets of everything off and looks fab. And I second drying it really well.

I use viakal to clean the draining board and sink, it removes any limescale and then I rinse and buff with an e cloth or kitchen roll.

Thanks everyone, really good suggestions! What kind of cloth do you use, a soft one or a scrubby one?
