    My sink and drainer is looking its age. I want to polish it back up. I have a DA polisher for the car and an electric drill.

    What bits can I buy from Screwfix that either fit the Das6Pro or the drill and what compound would you suggest to bring it back to life?

    Thanks Li

    Would use a food safe metal polish, which is tastless,odour free.

    And use a suitable pad for your Das6Pro, they do compound, polishing & finishing pads,think things like goblet polishing mop (from competitor),cabbage mop & others to use with drill will have limited uses,without using a flexible shaft, better having a rag & some elbow grease for the awkward area's.

    Might be best to use a limescale descaling solution first.

    There's no limescale on it. It is just scratched and dull. Thank you all

    Paste.. You can sometimes see at pound shops. It's a clay they dig out ground. Works great and oven cleaners use it. Add a drop of water to thin if required. See here

    Toothpaste usually does quite a good job of restoring former glory.

    And do you all assume it's stainless steel?
