Maintaining your favourite stainless is effortless
The stain resistance of Stainless Steel stems from an extremely thin but tenacious and self-repairing film which forms on the surface.
Routine gentle cleansing will reward the owner with a product which retains its properties and appearance through many years of constant daily use.
The best method for cleaning Stainless Steel is quite simply soap, or a mild detergent in warm water, applied with a soft cloth or synthetic sponge. Rinse in hot water and dry with a soft cloth or allow to ‘drip’ dry.Occasionally, the use of a mild household cleaner and fine synthetic scourer or a brush with nylon bristles may be used.
