How to clean stainless steel

Stainless steel is a staple in most households, and gives your kitchen that professional look, but it can be challenge to get it clean without ruining it.

How to keep your stainless steel, stainless!

Like with all beautiful materials, you’ve got to be careful with your stainless steel. So, how do you clean away unsightly spots without leaving scratches? Cleaning stainless steel can be painless, if you know what you’re doing. There are two easy steps: clean and polish.

To clean the external surface of your stainless steel appliance use a clean microfibre towel with a mix of warm water and Flash Multi-Surface Concentrated Cleaner. You'll acheive a powerful clean that’s so good at getting rid of greasy stains, that you won’t need any from your elbow.

If you don’t have a microfibre towel, use a sponge, but steer clear of steel wool or any scrubbers that aren’t specifically labelled ‘non-scratch’. You don’t want to end up ruining your stainless steel in an attempt to clean it!

Put the nail in the limescale.

If you’re cleaning a stainless steel sink, you’ll probably also want to get rid of hard water marks and limescale. Limescale removal can be a reoccurring challenge especially if you live in a hard water area. Limescale is caused by minerals in the water that crystallise on surfaces. The longer you leave it, the more it’ll build up. Limescale is tough and you might think you’ve got to be tough on it, but don’t use harsh chemicals and definitely don’t use bleach! You’ll do more harm to your precious surface than good that way.

Viakal Limescale Remover Spray is specifically designed to target the toughness of limescale without being harsh, and to provide a long lasting shine. Just spray the affected area with the limescale treatment, leave it to dissolve the limescale for up to five minutes, then simply wipe it away and rinse with water. And voila! Your stainless steel is shining again.

Before we leave you, here’s a word of warning - don’t use the Viakal Limescale Remover in your kettle or inside any of your appliances. But otherwise, wherever there’s limescale, Viakal will help you to remove all of it with ease.
