Stainless steel, an alloy of iron containing 10% chromium, is used extensively in homes and industries. Steel spoons and forks are an important part of our kitchen and it makes eating easier. Especially eating noodles becomes difficult without a fork, generally, we believe that stainless steel cannot rust, but this is not entirely correct. When the layer of chromium present on the surface of the spoon and fork is removed, it starts rusting.
When spoon and fork get rusted
Once the spoon and fork get rusted, we neither like to eat with their help nor can it be used when guests come. The main attraction of steel utensils is their shine, but if the shine goes away then it becomes difficult to use it. Let us know how spoons and forks made of stainless steel can be cleaned through home remedies.
How to clean a spoon and fork
For this, first of all, mix 1 tablespoon of baking soda in 2 cups of water, so that a solution will be prepared.
Rub the baking soda solution on the rust stain with the help of a toothbrush. Baking soda is non-abrasive and will gently remove rust stains from stainless steel. It also will not harm the stainless steel layer.
Wash and wipe the area with a wet paper towel. You will be able to see the rust on the paper towels. Now your spoons and forks will be clean
Take care of these things
It is also necessary to take some precautions in cleaning the stainless steel spoon and fork.
Never use Strong Abrasive Scouring Powders, as they will scratch the surface and abrade it.
Never use steel wool ie steel scrub, because it will scratch the layer.
Try any mild abrasive powder to clean a corner of the utensil, but pay attention to whether the surface is scratched.
By doing this you can remove rust from spoons and forks without damaging the steel layer.
