Cleaning RV Plastic Sinks

What do you guys use to clean the plastic sinks in bathroom and kitchen? My 2010 Sabre I used a Colorox Foam bathroom cleaning spray - it did the job but I think it might have taken off the finish. It was never shiny any more, clean, but dirty looking. So our new 2015 Sabre I'm using what the RV Dealer in Florida (we're snowbirds) suggested what he uses in his home. Lysol Foam with Hydrogen Peroxide Power & Free bathroom cleaner. Again its clean, but a darker looking kitchen sink, the one side I use for washing the dishes. I will admit I clean it about once a week, maybe less. We just got this RV in December, so it's still quite new.

Any suggestions?

Don't know how you rectify the dark coloring now, but our dealer told us to not let coffee or coffee grounds stay on the surface much over a few seconds without rinsing with water.

No - I never throw Coffee Grounds down the sink. Always in the garbage, but I do rinse the coffee pot out, but that is like one or two seconds and then I make sure I rinse the sink out.

Hot water and dish soap is what we use, and it seems to be fine - one year on this particular sink and it still looks new. That said, we don't do a lot of fancy stuff even in our home...

We use vinegar and water solution with a 1 to 1 ratio.
