There is a reassurance in

THIS IS A HAMMER
By Samantha Mazzotta
Marred by Stain
Q: I have a stain in my
"stainless" steel sink. Its a
water stain around the edge of the drain. I have
a water softener, but that didnt prevent
it. What will clean this up? And why do they call
it stainless anyway? I want it to look like new.
-- Linda M., Silver Spring, Nev.
A: Stainless steel is a metal
alloy (meaning two or more metals blended to
create a new type of metal -- think brass, for
example, which is an alloy of copper and bronze).
In this case, stainless steel sinks are an alloy
of iron and chromium. Its durable and
resists stains. The surface of these sinks is
often coated with a little extra layer of
chromium to make a tough and shiny oxide surface.
If this coating wears off, through age or lots of
abrasive scrubbing, rust and water stains can
become a problem.
Try a home remedy first to see
if the stain will come up. Pour undiluted white
vinegar on a lint-free cloth and dab it onto the
water stain. Let it soak for an hour and then
wipe the vinegar away, to see if it lifts the
mineral deposit with it. You might also try
mixing a paste of baking soda, hot water and
vinegar and applying a thick layer over the stain
with a cloth or nylon brush. Again, let it soak
and wipe or rinse the paste away.
Additionally, Ive never
tried this, but some people swear by club soda.
Just dab it in the stain and let it soak for a
The next step is to purchase a
stainless-steel cleaning solution (and
specifically, a solution for cleaning stainless
steel). Follow the directions on the bottle to
clean the stain.
HOME TIP: To maintain stainless
steel, dont scrub with abrasive sponges or
cleaners. To keep a sink shiny, rub a very light
layer of olive oil over the sink and fixtures
