Removing scratches from porcelain bathroom sink?

So we had a contractor in a handful of years ago to do some drywall work and painting, and he decided to wash his putty knives and other tools in the bathroom sink. Unbeknownst to us at the time, he scratched the basin fairly extensively, and we didn't realize it for a few weeks (once dirt and other staining made the scratches evident). We put up with it since then, but I wanted to try and fix this.

Quick searches turn up lots of "household hints" pages suggesting baking soda as an abrasive (sometimes with additions of peroxide or vinegar). After several passes of five minutes each with the baking soda and a toothbrush, I'm thinking that this isn't nearly abrasive enough.

My next plan, after consulting Reddit to see what others had tried, was to wet-sand the basin with something like 320-400 grit paper. Thoughts, for those who might have tried something similar?
