Stainless Steel Care & Maintenance

Stainless steel is extremely durable, and maintenance is simple and inexpensive. The best form of maintenance is regular cleaning particularly under corrosive conditions where it is essential.  Food handling, pharmaceutical, aerospace and certain nuclear applications require extremely high levels of cleanliness.  Simply put, clean the metal when it is dirty to restore its original appearance.

* Use a soft cloth or sponge with only water and mild soap or non-abrasive detergent to clean the stainless steel surface. Avoid using chloride-containing detergents.

* Clean in the direction of the grain.

* Wipe dry with a soft cloth.

* Keep free of any standing water which may result in a build up of mineral deposits.

* NEVER use metal scouring pads or steel wool.
