HOW TO PREVENT CAUSING DAMAGE TO
STAINLESS STEEL SURFACES
Always clean the surface with – never against – the grain of the finish
when using creams and detergents. In the case of polished stainless
steel, never exert excessive pressure when cleaning.
Never use products containing the following:
Hydrochloric acid or its derivatives;
Sulphuric acid or its derivatives;
Hydrofluoric acid or its derivatives.
These substances (contained for example in anti-scale products or
bleach) have a corrosive effect.
Never use sharp or pointed metallic objects (e.g. knives, scissors,
screwdrivers) to remove grime or dirt from the surface.
Avoid using abrasive pastes, creams or pads on printed information on
the steel surface.
