Kitchen sink problem


Hi,

The sink in my kitchen has started peeling. By this, I mean the colour (white) has started to fade. Are there any products you would recommend so that I can spray/paint over the fading colour (grey/yellowy)

Thank you

Sorry--time for a new sink----no paint will bond well enough to the old sink . Any repair will fail in short order.---Mike---

I agree with Oh'mike. There are companies who can refinish cast iron fixtures, but for a sink, it wouldn't be worth it. Just get a new sink.

I refinished our bathtub with an epoxy paint kit. It's a quick fix for a couple years. The surface can not be used for 72 hours.

If it's discolored, try Whink, rust stain remover.

Yes, buy a new sink. I think that this is the best decision.
