In spite of its name, stainless steel rusts. However, if your sink made of stainless steel is getting damaged due to rust, then there’s no compelling reason to replace it right now. You can remove rust from the sink with a few easy rust removal tips and tricks.
Washing utensils in a rusty sink not only sounds weird, but it is also one of the grossest chores to do. Contrary to popular notion, stainless steel is not stain-proof, but it is also true that it won’t rust as easily or in the same manner as regular steel.
When other wet items, like cast iron pans, flatware or utensils are left in the sink for many days, then the chances of stainless steel being more susceptible to rust become higher. Galvanic Corrosion occurs when the metal reacts with the water, resulting in the discoloration we see on the surface area of sink.
There are more than 150 grades of stainless steel available in Sydney, and some of these grades are more susceptible to corrosion compared to others. The chance of rusting decreases, if there’s a higher content of chromium used in the steel. To find out the chromium content of your stainless-steel sink, you need to check with the manufacturer or warranty. In the future, whenever you plan to buy a new sink, make sure you choose one with high chromium content.
Fortunately, you don’t have to purchase another sink to get rid of the rust at this point. Have a look at these simple yet effective, DIY rust removal solutions to make your stainless steel sink look bright & new:
Extra Tip: Try to stay away from using hard metals and heavy scouring pads, since they’re notorious for easily scratching the surface of your sink.
