This is some stainless steel tips. This is actually a mixer bowl, but you can use any of these tips for sinks or any other appliances you have in your kitchen. First thing you want to do; people have a lot of trouble with fingerprints. I don’t know if you can see them. I don’t know if you can see them, but right around in here there’s lots of fingerprints, and kids love to stick their hands on stainless steel and that just makes it look dull and un-shiny. So the first thing you want to always do is try wiping with a damp cloth. See if that will get all of the stains off. There’s still a couple of stains in there, so try using some alcohol, or some acetone, to get those spots off, and just rub around the more stubborn spots and those spots will come off. If you are still having problems after the alcohol, I would suggest getting a stainless steel cleaner from the store- there’s many brands. But that looks pretty good. To give your stainless steel an extra shine, vegetable oil is the easiest trick in the book, and it’s not expensive and it’s something everyone has in their house. And just dab a little on a paper towel. You always want to go with the polish that’s already there so your shine stays lustery. And you have a nice, shiny stainless steel.
