I'd use a product called Scour Off by Shaklee. They are "green" and is "Oprah's" favorite organic cleaner. I have some. Contact me and I can take some out of my container and send it to you.

Comet worked for us when we had the paint film on our sink.

I use a plastic scouring pad, it is flat and slightly rough. Works very well and will not harm the sink!

My husband has owned a painting business for 15 years, and I can tell you that the fail-safe of all paint emergencies is goo-gone or goof-off. They are essentially the same product and you can get a small bottle at your local hardware store. Just rub a little on and the paint should come right off. It shouldn't damage your stainless, and it has a relatively low-odor. Hope that helps!

If none of the cleaning advice works, there is a product called "oops" or something like that and you can get it at a paint store. It removes accidental drips from wood, carpet, etc. and I'm sure it would work on your sink as well.

You can use an sos pad. I used that on our stainless sink and it got EVERYTHING off.
