Helpful Hints from joeeze: How to clean stainless steel cutlery (and other stainless steel items)

23wertgh

1) Never mix different types of stainless steel (for example, a Georg Jensen stainless steel Leaf Bowl and Royal Doulton cutlery) in the same dishwasher cycle. Putting items with a different grade of stainless steel in the same dishwasher cycle can cause a chemical process which can leave marks on your stainless steel.

2) Always take cutlery out of the dishwasher straight away to avoid marks.

3) Every 25 times you use your dishwasher, you should run it empty. This is a waste of water but it cleans out the gunk from your dishwasher’s system.

4) Use liquid detergent rather than powdered or solid (cube) detergent as it is less abrasive.

5) Remove marks on stainless steel knife blades by soaking them in a sink with detergent, hot water and 1/4 cup of white vinegar.

6) Remove fingermarks on stainless steel fridges (or other appliances) with baby oil on cotton wool. It's essential that you rub with the grain of the steel (e.g. top to bottom only, or right to left only). Don't rub the cotton wool in circles like you would when cleaning a window.
