I used an abrasive pad on my porcelain kitchen sink. Big mistake. Now I have scratches and big discolorations. What can I do? My husband will kill me.

They make a product that refinishes tubs, should buffing out not work you might try that. They sell it at home depot and Lowes but I would take myself down to a local hardware store and see what they tell you to do. I have also heard that taking enamel paint and carefully painting the scratch little by little will cover it and make it invisible. But I would ask at the local hardware store, and look at the tub repainting stuff.
Barkeeper's Friend (cleanser) you can buy at WalMart

I use the Mr. Clean Magic Eraser with Comet which helps, but you really have to scrub. Think I will try that Bartender's Secret.
You may find that the scratches are permanent and the sink will always look dirty. When you replace your sink make sure you never use anything that can scratch. I use liquid dishwashing detergent on my porcelain sinks.

How do I remove the scratches/stains left in my sink from metal pans scraping against the sink surface? It's a porcelain sink.
