Kelly's Korner - Stainless Steel

Hey, All,

As you might know, stainless steel appliances have been a big seller for years now.  It looks sleek and elegant and gives a new lift to an old  - or new - kitchen.

But first, a little history about stainless steel:  First recognised in 1821, stainless steel is a steel alloy with a minimum of 10.5% chromium by mass.  This makes it extremely resistant to corrosion, rust and stains.  It also is not (usually) magnetic - so no kid art or kitten magnets on your fridge!  It is used in many applications from art sculptures to your everyday silverware because of easy adaptability of this metal.

But, as anyone with stainless appliances can tell you, keeping them shiny and gleaming is not always easy.  So how do you keep it clean and shiny?  There are many products out on the market for this, but let me tell you of a few that W L May carries.

So Junior is playing with his favorite Hot Wheels cars and runs them along your refrigerator or dishwasher door and leaves scratches - Yikes!  What do you do?  W L May carries a Scratch-B-Gone kit that has the instructions and products in it to remove most scratches and restore the shiny.  Part number for this kit is DW-SBG-HK.  Caution!  Make sure your appliance is actual stainless steel and not a brushed aluminum or other stainless lookalike - they are out there!  Magnets usually will not stick to them but it depends on the metals used in the alloy.  Do your research before using this product or you may end up destroying your finish.

And for those quick clean-ups?  Come on in a pick up some Affresh Stainless Steel Wipes from our friends at Whirlpool - part number W10355049.  These will come in handy for those sticky fingerprints and messy spills.

W L May also carries a variety of other cleaners for your appliances - come on in and check them out.

Have a great week!
