Tips for stainless steel sink cleaning

Stainless steel compared to other materials used for kitchen equipment has several advantages. It benefits from a certain resistance to high cooking temperatures and resistance to corrosion. Despite this, he is sensitive to soiling. Whether it’s fingerprints, food, or just traces of water. It is therefore essential that the sink is cleaned often enough.

– White vinegar
– Sparkling water
– Dishwashing liquid
– Soap
– Microfiber cloth or soft cloth

Before you start

The cleaning of the sink is a fairly simple job, but the process changes depending on the material used for its design.


1. Daily cleaning

One of the best methods to maintain the stainless steel sink is to clean it daily with dishwashing liquid. It is also possible to clean it with soapy water or hot water. Once cleaned, wipe it off immediately with a microfiber cloth. This method may show flaws if the traces are stubborn.

2. Thorough cleaning and shine of the sink

This process is suitable for stubborn marks. Pour a few drops of household alcohol on a soft cloth then gently rub the sink with it. It is also possible to use white vinegar diluted and heated in advance. Above all, avoid direct use of pure vinegar as this may damage the stainless steel.

In addition, to give shine to the stainless steel sink, there are specific products. In case you do not have these products, use sparkling water. To do this, spread it over the sink, then scrub with a soft cloth and rinse with warm water. Then wipe with a cloth to avoid leaving water marks.

3. Alternative methods

There are still other simpler tips. There is among others the cleaning with:

– A potato
Rub the sink with one of the potato peels and rinse a few minutes later using a soft cloth.

– Lemon
Dip a sponge in lemon juice then use it to scrub the sink or use lemon directly to rub.

Baking soda Spread baking soda on the sink and rub it with a damp sponge. Then rinse with plain water and then wipe with a soft cloth.

Cleaning the faucet

For the rest of the stainless steel furniture (worktop, credenza, hood and the kitchen faucet made of stainless steel), it is also possible to proceed in the same way as for the sink. In the absence of a special stainless steel product, it is possible to use the products used to wash the windows to make your furniture shine. Put on the furniture and wipe with a soft cloth then to get a net result. In addition, do not use this method on the sink or any surface coming into direct contact with the food to avoid the risk of intoxication or poisoning.

Although stainless steel is resistant to corrosion, it can happen that it is subject to poor maintenance. Due to the use of an abrasive product for example (bromine and chlorine).

Characteristics of table saws that you must consider

saw bladeIn general, the circular saw is installed under the table, so it is able to split the wood panels. It may even be able to cut metals, but it will depend on the types of metals you are going to use.

Blade: the size of the blade is variable because its diameter can be between 200 and 400mm accompanied by steel teeth. Depending on the type of material and the height of the material to be cut, you can choose the blade according to its use. According to standards, the blade must be surrounded by a protective cover which acts as a protector.

Table: There are two table characteristics, the cast iron table, and the aluminum table. The size of the saw is according to the model because the dimensions for small models are between 60 x 30 cm and large 80 x 70 cm. In any case, from the technical point of view, the work surface is always proportional to its accessories.

Power: so that you can work properly, it is obvious that you will need power. The power of table saws ranges from about 1,000 to 4,000 watts. In addition, the device can be in mono or three-phase mode. The machine can be adapted to your needs. A good table saw for woodworking will be powerful enough to cut through most types of wood.

Weight: like the other characteristics, the weight can be as variable, but must also be proportional to the power, as well as to the different structural materials of your table.

The miter saw: it is useful to reverse the position of the saw to use it on the top of the particular. Its role is therefore quite independent. In addition, it is also useful for miter cuts which are in particular cuts between 0 and 90 degrees relative to the piece of wood. Starting from this fact, the table must, therefore, be equipped with a rotating and graduated plate.
