Removing stains in Wildcat MAXX sink?

We have a almond colored kitchen sink in our 2016 Wildcat MAXX 28 RKX. It seems to be a bit porous and is getting a few light stains from coffee. My wife is very particular about her kitchen in the Rv as well as at home. She has tried several cleaning products to clean these stains including Mr Clean erasers.
Anyone have a suggestion as to products she might try to remedy this condition?

I swear by Bar Keepers Friend cleanser and polish. It takes coffee stains out as well as other stains from sinks.
Cheap and very effective.

Here is a link to Home Depot who has it but you can find it in most supermarkets.

My wife also uses that and soft scrub. She's smears it all over the sink and let's it sit, maybe even overnight. Then scrubs it off.

We were told to not use anything abrasive on the sink finish like Bar Keepers Friend or comet cleanser. I use a little soft scrub and wash the bottom of the sink carefully. If anyone has found a more gentle way of removing coffee stains please share!

I have an almond colored sink in my 2015 Rockwood 2608WS TT that is also somewhat porous. I have been told to do the following to clean the sink: Fill the sink with warm water and Oxi-Clean laundry booster/detergent. Allow to soak; rinse. What is not clear to me is exactly how much Oxi-Clean to use. Because there is no scrubbing, it seems to me it would be safe to soak overnight, if necessary. I would be careful also of using anything abrasive in the sink. I'd also use the powdered Oxi-Clean and swish in the warm water to dissolve.

I have no idea want your sink is made of,,, we use Soft Scribe on our kitchen sink @ home,,, it is made of a composite material like Coriander ??? Once we get it good & clean I polish it with a coat or 2 of Gel-Gloss,,, It will then be much easer to keep clean for a while,,, until it needs to be polish again !!! Should be able to find it @ any home improvement center !!! Funny but the thing that stains our sink the most is Onions !!! They turn our Almond sink black or dark gray ???

I have used a soft paste of baking soda and water and let it sit overnight on the stain.
