For normal cleaning, use warm, soapy water or conventional ammonia
based liquid glass cleaner.
For dry stains, allow the soapy water or glass cleaner some time to
remoisturize the area, then wipe the stain off.
To renew the surface after deep scratches or stains, use green, then
maroon, and finally white 3M Scotch-Brite®
pads to return the deck to a
smooth 1200 grit wet-sanded finish.
If the dry stain is neither water-based nor oil-based, gently scrape the stain
off with a plastic material (i.e. a plastic knife), and then proceed with the
aforementioned normal cleaning procedures.
Wipe the entire surface evenly with a mild abrasive cleanser for regular
Stainless Steel Care
Important: When cleaning stainless steel, always rub in the same direction
of the stainless steel finish lines, never across. After cleaning, always
thoroughly rinse with water and dry all cleaned stainless steel areas to
prevent buildup of mineral deposits.
Clean stainless steel surfaces often using warm, soapy water.
For more stubborn deposits, use baking soda, borax or any of several nonabrasive commercial cleansing agents. Do not leave chlorides found in most
cleansing agents for extended periods of time on the surfaces as they may
attack stainless steel. If an abrasive cleaning tool is needed, always use
stainless steel wool, stainless steel pads, or stainless steel brushes. Do not
use ordinary steel wool, pads or brushes because the have a tendency to
break apart and leave small particles which will rust on the stainless steel
surfaces, giving the appearance that the stainless steel surfaces themselves
are rusting. Do not use strong acidic or caustic cleaners or cleansers
because they may also attack the stainless steel surfaces. Maintain a
regular cleaning schedule.
