3. Corrosive Foodstuffs: Fruit juices, damp salt, vinegar, readymade
mustards, pickle and mayonnaise can cause pitting and corrosion if left
in contact with the stainless steel surface for long periods.                                   screws (C).

4. Acids: Sulphuric, Hydrochloric and other strong acids will cause
pitting corrosion, as will photographic developing liquids. All should be
immediately washed off with plenty of clean water if contact occurs.

Cleaning: Always use a soft cloth. The use of coarse grit scouring
powders or soap filled wire wool cleaning pads is not recommended,
since both will mark the surface of the sink. Wire wool pads can leave
tiny fragments of wire embedded in the surface and these can rust and
leave small brown rust stains. Vigorous rubbing with a soft cloth, Jif,
neat detergent, cleaning cream or liquid will remove these stains.
Always remove wet cleaning aids (cloths, containers etc) from the sink
surface after use in order to avoid the formation of watermarks and rust
