Maintaining the Shine of Your Stainless Steel Sink

by Guest on Feb 3, 2011

Although stainless steel is durable and can endure the test of time, it does not necessarily mean that is maintenance free.

Since there is an adequate amount of chromium in it, it can create a protective pseudo-film of chromium oxide in its surface when left to expose to air.
