Cleaning Stainless Steel

Here at Glover Cleaning, a Utah maid service, we know that cleaning can be a chore.  We hope this tip is useful.

Stainless steel is the material that people want on their sinks, fixtures, and sinks.  The reasons are many, durability and resistance to stain is high on the list.  But it is the look and feel that gives your kitchen that extra zing to your kitchen.  Stainless steel requires a bit of a delicate touch, to ensure that the shine of that polish lasts.  Here are a few tips to help you take care of your home.

There are a few materials around the house that you should avoid when cleaning your stainless steel.  The first material is bleach or any product that contains bleach.  Bleach has a nasty reaction with the metal producing a grey blemish.  The long term effects of bleach is rust to the steel.  Abrasive cleaners are also a big no-no, so put away the steel wool and brushes as well.  The polish gets scratched and begins the descent of the metal.

The best way to clean your appliances and fixtures is with a clean and lint free cloth.  To remove fingerprints dampen your cloth and squeeze out excess water before you clean the surface.  Drying thoroughly will ensure that you don’t have water spots and a nice finish.

Now if there is food splatter or grease that won’t come off with the damp cloth.  Add a few drops of mild detergent and that should be sufficient.  Sometimes on a sink you will have food that is burned or dried on so you are unable to clean with the above methods.  Make a paste with baking soda and water to the constituency of toothpaste.  Be careful not to scratch the surface as baking soda is mildly abrasive.  Let it soak if the mixture is unable to clean sufficiently.

We hope you found this useful, until later this is Glover Cleaning signing off.
