I'd be leery of paint because it might not take the abuse the sink sees. What have you tried to clean it with? I'm sure a healthy dose of elbow grease would also be required.

I don’t know whether it would make a dent in the cleaning process for the tub, but I would just get some of that Bar Keepers Friend and use a stiff scrub brush and see how well it could clean up the surface. It’s not very expensive and it’s easy enough to try. It might do some good. I always give that a shot first when I have a tough cleaning job.

A new stationary sink is not that expensive. I would replace it if clean is important to you.

This one looks close and it's $39. I prefer the wall-mount utility sinks, as they seem a little more stable.

Here's a few:

A little pricier than I would've thought, but searching for "wall mount laundry tub" should get some better results.
