    Many people in life think: "Stainless steel is not rusted, rust is not stainless steel, rusting of the sink is a quality problem." In fact, this is a misconception about the lack of understanding of stainless steel, stainless steel will rust under certain conditions, especially It is improper cleaning and maintenance!

    First of all, we first understand the nature of stainless steel: the surface of stainless steel has a chromium-rich oxide film (protective film) to prevent the penetration and oxidation of oxygen atoms, and to obtain corrosion resistance. Once this protective film is destroyed, oxygen atoms in the air or liquid will continue to infiltrate, and the iron atoms in the metal will continue to separate, forming loose iron oxide, and the metal surface will be continuously rusted.

    Then avoid the a few phenomena listed by the afa Stainless Steel Sink Manufacturers  , beware of increasing the chance of rust:

    1. When the kitchen is decorated, welding debris, cement, oil stains, etc. remain on the surface of the sink. If it is not cleaned in time, it may cause rust and mildew;

    2, kitchen knives, scissors, bottle openers and other steel items placed on the surface of the sink for a long time, will cause floating rust, mold or discoloration;

    3, do not pay attention to the maintenance of the sink, usually lemon juice, melon vegetables, noodle soup, etc. into the sink, not cleaned in time, the organic juice destroyed the protective film on the stainless steel surface.

    Finally, if there is already a rust, then let's share a few practical tips.
    1. Toothpaste: A good assistant to remove rust spots, a must-have item in life - toothpaste. First, soak the rust-stained part with water, squeeze the toothpaste on a soft cloth to wipe it, then rinse it with water, and wipe it repeatedly until the rust spots are removed.

    2. White vinegar: Let the white vinegar cover the surface of the rust evenly. It can be used together with salt. Because white vinegar contains acetic acid, rust and acetic acid will react. Finally, rinse with water to dry the sink.

    3. Stainless steel cleaner: Stainless steel cleaner is mainly used for cleaning stainless steel, pot bottom, range hood, etc. It is also very good for cleaning the rust spots in the water tank. It can be bought online, and it is cheap to use.

    4. Clean in the direction of the grinding line: Most stainless steel sinks now use the drawing process, and the surface will have a sanding line or “texture”. If there is a sanding line, it must be wiped cleanly in the same direction as the sanding line. Clear, then you have to be careful, wipe with a soft cloth or plastic pad.
