Do you have stained or rusty looking flatware?

J.A. Henckels Flatware ProvenceWorking at Kitchen Boutique the past few years I have had a number of customers come into the shop asking about how to get rid of the rust colour or stains on their flatware. I have a couple of solutions for you but first would like to tell you why your flatware is probably getting stained in the first place.

Stains can be caused by prolonged contact with acidic foods or in geographic areas with a high chlorine or iron content tap water. They can also be caused  if you have a dish washer that doesn’t dry the flatware completely. You will see a brownish stain appear over time.

Solution: Baking Soda. Very simple. Just rub the baking soda on the flatware and rinse off. Should be like new again.

Solution number two: Clean with “Swiss Cleaner”. A product that you can buy in-store at our kitchen shop.

Remember that all flatware is “Stain-less” Steel and not “Stain-proof” Steel. The higher the grade of stainless steel, the less likely it will be to stain.

  3. I am really inspired along with your writing abilities as smartly as with the layout on your weblog. Is that this a paid subject or did you customize it your self? Anyway stay up the excellent quality writing, it’s rare to see a nice blog like this one today..
