Stainless steel utensils are prone to a staining despite their title. Although stainless steel is known as a durable material, it can become unsightly over time as a result of normal wear and tear and everyday usage. Fingerprints, hard water mineral buildups and cooking grease may rob the once-shiny utensils of the luster. It’s best to work with natural, toxic substances when cleaning the utensils since you put them in your mouth. Also, make sure you avoid using abrasive materials, such as scrub pads, which can scratch the utensils.
Eliminate fingerprint and grease stains from the stainless steel utensils with a mild dish detergent. Fill a sink with warm water and then add some drops of the detergent. Wash the utensils in the solution and gently wash them with a soft cloth. Rinse with warm water and dry thoroughly.
Eliminate more stubborn stains with vinegar. Apply a small amount of undiluted vinegar into a clean terry cloth dish towel and rub it in the utensils, paying additional attention to the stained or streaked regions. Clean the utensils with warm water and dish soap and dry thoroughly.
Repeat Step 2 using plain club soda in the event the vinegar method doesn’t remove the stains. Repeat the process until the stains are gone.
