Cleaning Oven Racks #4170

Place oven racks and stove reflector pans and burner rings in a heavy plastic bag with an ammonia soaked cleaning towel. Close the bag and let it sit for a couple of hours - preferably outside. If needed, scrape the racks with a metal pot scraper. Rinse and wipe dry.

Using Vinegar #4236

A machine dishashing compound contains highly alkaline builders (ingredients). Vinegar would just neutralize part of the alkalinity of the product, yielding sodium or potassium acetates, and they do not contribute to the cleaning in the wash cycle. Acidified rinse cycles may be beneficial in hard water areas (sparkling glassware, etc.).

Caring for Your Stainless Steel Sink #4820

Stainless steel has a timeless, elegant look that fits any décor and looks beautiful
in any setting. A stainless steel kitchen sink is durable, easy to keep clean and disinfect, and will only grow more beautiful with age – if you take proper care of it.
Stainless steel sinks are made from stainless steel made with nickel. The finish is usually satiny and smooth rather than chrome-shiny. Stainless steel is tough – it resists rust, chipping, nicking and cracking. It won’t stain or fade or discolor.
It’s easy to clean with a household cleanser, and believe it or not – it helps protect glasses and dishes from breaking if you drop them. With that much going for them, it’s no surprise that stainless steel is the most popular material for a kitchen sink.
Despite all that, though, there are a few things that can damage your stainless steel sink. Problem: Chlorides that are used in most soap and bleaches these days can eat away at the steel. Solution: Rinse sink well after each use.
Problem: Scratches. Solution: Some scratches are natural and will blend into the sink’s finish. You can avoid the worst of them by avoiding the use of steel wool on your sink. Instead, use a soft scouring liquid (Soft Scour) to avoid scratching the finish.
Problem: Hard water can leave stains or wear on the finish.
Solution: Wipe the sink dry after use, and clean it thoroughly once a week.
Problem: Salty foods can damage the stainless steel finish.
Solution: Always rinse your sink thoroughly after using it.
Routine Care for Stainless Steel Sinks
-Clean the sink with soapy water, or a stainless steel cleaner (Spray N Sheen
Stainless Steel Cleaner/Polish/Protectant) once or twice a week.
-Disinfect the sink surface regularly with an all purpose disinfectant,
remembering to leave the solution on for the recommended length of time.
-Don’t use your sink as a cutting board. A knife can leave deep nicks or
scratches that may rust and destroy the sink’s finish.
-Once or twice a month, fill the sink half full with a 50/50 solution of
bleach and water or a special stainless steel cleaner (Stainless Steel Cleaner). Let
it soak for about 15 minutes, then wash the sides and bottom and let it drain.
Remember to wipe dry when done.
-Scour in the direction of the finish lines. Scouring across them can damage the finish.
-Don’t let liquid soap or other cleansers dry on the sink. Rinse well and towel dry.
Caring for your stainless steel sink properly will ensure that you get years of life from it. Just remember, wash regularly, disinfect daily, polish weekly and dry after
every use
