What is Stainless Steel?: Stainless steel is basically a metal alloy, in which chromium, nickel, silicon and aluminum, carbon and iron are used. Stainless steel is a very strong metal, with corrosion resistant features. There are many applications of the stainless steel. Stainless steel is used for pipe lines and stainless steel flanges as well as bathrooms and kitchens. Because of its corrosion resistant feature it is commonly seen in kitchens. This is because it’s easy to clean and has a smooth surface.
For the routine cleaning of the stainless steel in your kitchen, the use of water and cloth is suggested. It is the simplest method of cleaning the stainless steel. All you need to do is use water, and then dry this water with a cloth or towel. Drying is important otherwise you will see water spots on the stainless steel surface. Make sure that you use a soft cloth to protect the steel from scratches.
However if you need to clean a product made out of stainless steel, which cannot be cleaned using simple water, the use of detergent is recommended. The dish washing liquid is preferable, as it is mild in action and isn’t very strong. Put the dish liquid on a clean soft cloth and wipe the dirty area on the stainless steel. It’s important that after applying dish washing liquid you wipe and rinse the surface carefully and thoroughly. Otherwise spots and stains will emerge on the surface which will then be difficult to clean.
If there are fingerprints on the surface of the stainless steel product, then the use of glass cleaner is recommended. Spray the glass cleaner on a cloth and wipe the dirty area with fingerprints in a circular motion to avoid scratches.
But if you have something with stains and scratches and which can’t be cleaned using the above mentioned methods, then the use of stainless steel cleaner is advised. There are many cleaners and polishes that are available in the market, which can help you get rid of the stains and scratches…
