Firstly, you need to make sure that the sink drain is closed. Run hot water into it and fill it nearly to its top. You do this to soften the stains of the sink which may be harder to rub and scrub. The hot water can make the stains weak because of its heat so that when you are to scrub it already, you would not be exerting much effort. Just be careful in putting the hot water. You make use of hot water, not scalding water. You can leave it there for 5-10 minutes.
Then, make a mixture of bleach and water by adding one capful of bleach to water. Let it stay there for approximately 2 hours. This is the needed time for the bleach and its chemicals to act upon the sink to cleanse it further. It is being done because it adds vulnerability to the stains. It aggressively tracks down traces of stain and helps in its elimination. Also, the bleach helps in adding luster and shine to your stainless steel kitchen sink. After 2 hours, the stains will all be so easy to scrub away. By this time, stains will have been loosened and softened.
You would need to get away any objects from the edges of the sink. While the basin is still soaking, you can soak several sheets of paper towels in to the bleach water. Then using the soaked paper towels, lay them on the rim of the basin, being cautious of not overlapping them on to the countertop. Lightly, press the soaked towels down and allow them to soak into the edges for another 2 hours. Let them stay there for the duration of this time. This helps in getting your overall stainless steel kitchen sink all cleaned up. Also, you would have to pay special attention on the other details while you are cleaning the sink. Remember, everything is as important as one another when cleaning.
As your final stretch to finishing off, you can now drain the water in your sink. You can discard the soaked paper towels. The bleach will have worn away most of the buildup dirt on the steel. Still, you can dunk a used and old toothbrush into cold water and scrub any areas that still in need of further cleaning. The bleach may have already acted upon the dirt and loosened and softened them up. Scrubbing away whatever left off dirt should now be easy. Check out the sink for any missed portion. As mentioned earlier, because of the bleach, everything will now be loosened and softened by the mixture of bleach and hot water, now, you just have to try to scrub the places where it still needs to be scrubbed and cleaned. After, you can let the stainless steel kitchen sink dry.
And, there you have it, a clean and sparkling stainless steel kitchen sink!
