Cider vinegar, tea, or lemon juice will do the job without the harsh chemicals. I prefer cider vinegar, but the tea and lemon juice work also.

Read the entries on your site. Tried the one that suggested "I use 600 wet/dry sandpaper. Sponged out most of the water. Used the sandpaper. Removed 99% of the rust with minimal effort."

Source: Feedbak in "Rust Stains in a White Sink"

"Rub gently with 'wet and dry' sandpaper. It may have a different name in the USA but any sandpaper with a grit of 600 or greater. As the name suggests it can be used with water and does not damage the surface. It can also be used on 'toilet rings'. Much less toxic and cheaper than buying chemicals."

Have you tried a scouring powder like Bon Ami, Barkeep's Friend, Comet, or Ajax? It depends on the composition of your sink as to which of the scouring powders you'll want to try-read the label to make sure it's safe to use on yours.
