Before applying any mild detergent, one should wash it with tap water. Once it is over, remove the moisture with a clean cloth. Now, put some dish washing liquid on a wet cloth and apply it on the stained portions of the sink. Rub the cloth with soft hands on the areas that are showing stains. Now, again wash the sink with water. Check whether the stains are still present on the sink. In most cases, they disappear without any hassle. One can also use warm water for cleaning cheap and under mount black kitchen sinks. However, make sure that water is not very hot as it can damage the surface of the sink.
