Everyday Attention 

It is advisable to avoid the usage of dishwasher while cleaning the stainless-steel utensils as it harms the finish and leads to spotting. Besides, one should also not leave the wet stainless-steel utensils in the dishwasher as this can also cause water spotting. One must hand wash the stainless-steel cookware with hot water, soft dish towel and dish soap followed by immediate drying.

Prevention And Removal Of Calcium Buildup 

The white spots you sometimes see on your stainless-steel cookware are nothing but calcium buildup which happens because of hard water. To get rid of this, just fill your utensil with three parts water and one part vinegar. Boil the mixture and wash the utensils. Then, dry and wash. 

Cleaning Food Stains 

It is advisable to clean off the food stains from stainless-steel utensils using a soft sponge. After the sponging is done, one must fill the utensils with water and dish soap. Bring the mixture to a boil and let it cool in the utensil itself. Scrub again and rinse. 

Getting Rid Of Heat Damage 

Apart from the white spots, you may see some black spots on your stainless-steel cookware too. Those marks emerge when the utensils are left on the burner for a long time. But you can get rid of these marks using baking soda. On a dry utensil, sprinkle some baking soda and rub using a dry cloth. Then, rinse the pan.  

Adding Oil 

One must add oil to the stainless-steel utensils to prevent the food from sticking to the surface. This would help you get rid of the struggle in scrubbing the residue buildup and food stains. One must clean the stainless-steel utensils after every single use to make them last longer.
