- Really boring stainless steel cleaning question…
Try to put some baby oil on a cloth and wipe it. That’s how we clean ours.
Baby oil is good for general cleaning I agree, but these marks are solid deposits – we have tried soapy water, various general kitchen cleaners and specialist stainless steel cleaners and none of them will budge the marks.Posted 7 years agoallthepiesMember

if it’s calcified deposits you’ll need acid to take it off. Start off getting the big bits off with a wooden spatula, and then start gentle, vinegar or kettle descalers to see if that works, before letting loose with the toilet bowl stuff. And before anything – are you sure it’s stainless. Stronger acids will corrode lower quality steels so if not sure, then don’t.Posted 7 years agosturmeySubscriber
Put a magnet to it if it sticks shit stainless or something ferrous behind like a screw or framework. If it does not stick decent stainless. If it is a satin finish youmay well get away with using a green scrubby but always go with the grain that would have to be last resort though as you may need to do the whole door to make it look ok again.Posted 7 years agoCougarSubscriber
Just say BANG and the calcified deposits are gone!
Back when I worked at Megabowl, about a million years ago, they used powdered bleach to scrub down the stainless steel units in the kitchen / diner area. It always struck me as madness, but it brought them up a treat.Posted 7 years agothisisnotaspoonMember
calcified – use something acid based like window cleaner
just a quick note, never use anything based arround chlorine (perchlorite/ate, eg bleach) as it attachs the chromium and will make it look crap, eventualy leading tothe surface becoming discooured or pitted.
not sure what the good stainless refered to above is, 316 is good, but isnt shiny and pretty like the stuff they make kitchens out of!Posted 7 years agosturmeySubscriber

316 refers to the nickel and chromium content from memory 304 grade is cheaper quality but more common than 316. The finish is down to polishing mill finish just grey looking satin finish has agrain to it then mirror finish or ba finish all the finishes can be obtained with nearly all grades of stainless it is just polishing processesPosted 7 years ago
