Having a modern concept kitchen does not mean you have to relax in treatment. Modern concepts usually use a lot of furniture made from stainless steel, because it looks more impressive and easy to maintain.
Yet over the past few years, many designers have argued whether stainless steel will continue to be popular in the professional’s kitchen or master chefs and the others middle class people. The reason is, shiny black and white kitchen utensils are starting to attract attention. But for those of you who still use stainless steel for the kitchen at your beloved home, here are 4 ways to properly care for a modern kitchen to make it look awesome and charming.
Anti-rust does not mean it can’t be damaged
Apart from smooth looking, the non-porous surface of the stainless steel, blocks the growth of bacteria and other microorganisms. This is the reason why stainless steel is so widely used in modern kitchens. Unfortunately, that doesn’t mean rust and stains can be prevented. Experts say if the armor on the stainless steel surface get scratched with a wire brush, then comes in contact with water or exposed to chloride from household cleaners, the stainless steel is vulnerable to damage.
For safe care and cleaning, start with the right tools. Experts recommend using a soft sponge and microfiber cloth. Do not clean with a steel brush which can cause scratches. Instead, choose plastic pads for tough jobs.
One way cleaning
When you clean utensils or stainless steel furniture surfaces, follow the direction of the thin lines on the surface. Thus, the potential for scratches can be minimized.
The wrong way to properly care for modern stainless steel kitchens with chloride-containing products can be dangerous to the armor on stainless steel. You can clean it with the following natural ingredients:
- Diluted vinegar. This material is suitable for removing the lime “scale” that commonly found in heating kettles or flasks.
- Baking soda. This material is suitable for removing coffee deposits.
- Alcohol solvents, such as acetone to remove adhesives.
