Cleaning laundry sink

Doing some laundry room renovations and am looking to clean up my laundry sink (fiberglass?).

Any recommendations on products to help with an easier clean-up of paint, rust and other stains from this sink?

This is exactly why we took out our Fibreglass Laundry Room Sink and put in an all in one Stainless Steel Unit
Absolutely no regrets
SS is easy to clean & sanitize
And doesn’t look shabby over time
A Laundry Room or Mudroom Sink gets a lot of punishment
When you use it for things like Painting & Gardening
Besides what it was meant for ... Laundry Soaking / Pretreating

Yea, the current sink is what the house came with when I bought it.

I looked at what it would cost to change the sink out to a SS one, but it seems pretty pricey.
Figured I would try to clean this one up as best I could and see if I'm happy with the results - and then try to ensure I maintain/clean it often enough so it doesn't look horrible again.

Stand alone, all stainless, laundry tub style
https://www.costco.ca/TRINITY-Stainless ... 59777.html

Ya can run anywhere from $ 350 to over $ 1000
Mind you this type will probably outlive you & the house it goes into

This type
https://www.costco.ca/Transform-Stainle ... 89242.html

Can be a lot less
Both available at Costco (as linked)
And most Home Improvement Stores

I got the latter type on sale for $ 200
And pretty easy to install if you are handy
