How to Clean Stainless Steel

It is recommended that you use a cleaner or polish that is designed specifically for stainless steel products. You may use a gentle soap, such as dish washing liquid and warm water. Acidic cleaners, such as lemon juice, should be avoided. We recommend the use of a soft sponge or microfiber washcloth. Do not use any abrasive cleaning pads or materials. Rinse with warm water and dry with a clean, soft cloth.

Minor scratches can be removed using a scratch remover designed specifically for stainless steel or metals. Refer to the directions for the product being used, as each scratch remover will have its own step-by-step procedure. For deeper scratches, wet sanding may be necessary using 600-grit (coarse) or 1000-grit (fine) sandpaper attached to a rubber sanding block. After sanding, use a stainless steel polish to restore shine if desired.
