  1. 1

    Dampen the sink with water, and sprinkle a light dusting of baking soda over the aluminium marks. The water will help the baking soda adhere to the sink.

  2. 2

    Scrub the marks with a washcloth and rinse the sink.

  3. 3

    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.

  4. 4

    Fill the sink with enough hot water to submerge the aluminium marks.

  5. 5

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

  6. 6

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