Use steel wool.
Does anyone remember the Delorean cars from the early 1980s? They
were stainless steel and instead of waxing, you steel-wooled them.

I suggest if you are going that way, use a stainless steel wool pad as
the other ones could end up as rust.
The trick is to find the right grade of the stuff. Sinks come in
various finishes some with more shine some less.

use a VS-drill and a surfacing wheel,like a flexible disc sanding
Harbor Freight has a surfacing kit that has two such wheels (2" and 3"
dia.)and a variety of abrasive fiber discs(like Scotch-Brite pads) that
would be perfect for resurfacing your sink,about $12 USD,IIRC.
Then finish up with a buffing pad and some compound.
I used a wire wheel. It was a thinner guage double bowl that I was
going to replace soon with a thicker $500 sink, but I liked the swirl
finish I ended up with, so I'm keeping it for now. Surprisingly, no
rust even after going to town with the wire wheel. Nearly everything
that is claimed to be "stainless" these days seems to get rust stains.
