Sandpaper For Stainless Steel Sink


I reset an under counter (granite) stainless sink with a Sinksetter unit.

Got most all the silicone off, but there are a few stubborn areas. I gave them all I had with SOS-Brillo pads but still there. The surface is brushed finish so no worries there.

Any recommendations for an emory cloth or similar to get these few places out ?

In combination to what I used above, I also used Goof Off Caulk Remover - off the shelf from Lowes. That worked very good. I would say its similar to Acetone. Still have a few places.

Never had one that Acetone wouldn't work on. Had to keep wetting some because of evaporation, but eventually it worked. Good Luck.

Brand new 3M drywall sanding sponge.

Get rid of the caulk mess, then run the sponge.

Get that glossier finish by running it fully wet with the tap water.
