Using your dishwasher for cleaning stainless steel cutlery could take several wash cycles before it becomes completely clean, it’s much quicker and easier to dry your cutlery by hand and we think it gives better results.  Should you notice streaks or blemishes on your cutlery simply add a few drops of olive oil or similar to your dishcloth, finally buff it off with a soft cloth.

Should your stainless steel cutlery start to look dull, we  find that soaking them in a bowl containing water and a small amount of bleach should make them shine again.  Wash to remove any left over bleach smells and dry to a shining finish that will impress family and friends who arrive for Christmas lunch.
