Now, many of our household products are stainless steel products, especially kitchen products.
Stainless steel products beautiful and generous, but how to deal with stainless steel products when scratches occur?
1. First step
Using a damp cloth or sponge, apply the cleaner on the scratches and rub vigorously in the same direction as the fine metal texture.
Check your progress by rinsing the cleaner with a wet sponge every once in a while to see if the scratches disappear.
If the technique eliminates scratches, a layer of stainless steel polish or olive oil can be applied.
If not, the next step should be applied.

2. Second step
Apply a layer of toothpaste on a soft toothbrush.
Wipe again in the direction of the particles in the metal.
Wipe the toothpaste with a damp cloth or sponge to check the progress.
If not, continue brushing, adding more toothpaste as needed.
If the scratches have been successfully removed, clean the area thoroughly and finish with stainless steel polish or olive oil.
If it is not removed, please go to the next step.

3. Third step
Sand it with super fine sandpaper.
This may take some practice, so try it in an unremarkable place first.
Use sandpaper to keep the pressure even.
Wet the sandpaper.
It is important to keep the sandpaper moist during work.
Wipe the scratched area with a sponge.
As you work, repeat as needed to keep the surface moist.
Under slight pressure, scratches work in the same direction as the texture in the metal.

4. Forth step
If sanding does not remove the scratches within a few minutes, try using slightly rough sandpaper.
When the scratches disappear, return to use the finer sandpaper, gently wipe on the working area, and then gently blend with the rest of the stainless steel surface to make it the same as other areas.
Wipe the sanding area with a damp cloth or sponge.
Remember that you are scrubbing loose gravel from the sanding process, so use plenty of water and wipe it in the same direction as the metal particles.
Dry the affected area with a soft towel or cloth.
Polish with stainless steel polish agent or olive oil.
