Our utility sink was used to clean up red paint brushes etc. It is now stained red. Can I paint this standard utility sink? Is there any product beyond bleach and cleaners that will remove the stains?

I believe it is plastic. The paint is interior latex. The sink looks awful.

Hi! I found out by accident that commercial restaurant degreaser (sodium hydroxide, I think it is also known as caustic soda) does a terrific job on enameled steel sinks. I had one that was stained with latex and oil paint, and when I put the oven grills to soak in the tub, it came back as good as new, and so did the oven grills. I don't know if it will work on plastic sinks though. Maybe it is too strong. Hope this helps!
