people at my job had been disposing of hot oil from a popcorn machine by dumping it down the stainless steel sink. I do not know how many times this has happened, the sink looked this way when I started. More than a few times from what I understand. The damage is totally smooth to the touch. I have tried: stainless steel cleanervinegar club sodaCLR for stainless steelbarkeeper's friend goo gone (idk just trying shit) No difference at all. Is there any way to get this out?
Simply scrub hard with a scouring pad. Scotch-Brite.
>>2683348if it's actually from hot oil and not just some sort of mineral deposit, it's going to be effectively like the seasoning on a cast iron pan. it's basically polyethylene. you'd have to abrade it off with steel wool or similar. it's pretty inert.if that's what it is.
>>2683348>get this outMay I ask: "why?"
>>2683431My first thought. It's a work sink. Not only does the appearance not matter, but it's not yours to give a damn about anyway. If the management cares, they can deal with it. I'm convinced this is a "oil down the drain not my problem" bait thread in disguise.
Thanks /diy/. I just needed to really scrub at it with green scotchbrite. It's not perfect but good enough. "Why tho" This is a sink visible to patrons at a rich people country club/wedding venue (self service snack bar area) and they are picky as fuck.
>>2683431> not my problem That's why
>>2683637Scrub a dub wagie, if I see a speck of dirt it gets reported to OSHA and corporate.
Hook it up to electricity
Barkeepers friend if you really want to impress the boss man, I use it fairly often on kitchen pots when they get dull, as most of my shit came out of restaurants so it's just straight metal.

>>2683348Wipe it down with hydrochloric acid, that's what it's for. If you're a pussy use a scotch brite wheel on a drill or whatever you got that spins
>>2683637Replace it. A landlord special stainless steel sink is about $100, and as a registered company, taxes are written off.
>>2683707I see these comments, and remember that there are people like you, who are so miserable on the inside that they have to make themselves laugh by posting this needless smut.I make >200k and would help this dude clean a sink if he needed it. He's not calling a fucking plumber, and just wants to take pride in his work.You're despicable.
dremel or drill + felt bob + silvo or some toothpaste
In the old days we would just blast is with piss.
