Fill the sink bowl with warm water and a few drops of mild liquid soap. Add soap until the water clouds and is the same colour as the soap.
Dampen a clean cloth with the water and wipe the burnt area. This should remove any slight discolouration. Empty the sink bowl of the water and soap.
Mix a baking soda cleaning paste in a bowl. This should consist of one part baking soda to three parts water. Stir with a spoon until you get a pastelike texture.
Spread the cleaning paste over the burnt area with your fingers. Massage the mixture into the marked area. Leave the paste for around 5 minutes.
Scrub the cleaning paste off with an old toothbrush. Keep brushing until you remove the burn mark. Add a little more of the cleaning paste to stubborn spots if you need to.
Clean the sink top with a cloth, water and a squirt of soap.
