How to Remove Scratches in Stainless Steel

Whether you can remove a scratch has much to do with how deep the scratch goes. Here are several ways to deal with this problem and restore your cookware, stainless steel appliances, countertops or sinks to their former glory.


Consider using a product made for stainless steel such as Scratch-B-Gone or Bar Keepers Friend.

Or, try spraying an all-purpose cleaner (such as Formula 409) on the scratches.

Use a non-metal scouring pad (such as Scotch-Brite pads) to rub the cleaner in, always rubbing in the direction of the grain.

Keep the stainless steel wet with the cleaner as you work, and rinse the pad often.

Rinse the surface and wipe dry.

You may also use a solution such as WD-40 to help fill in the sctraches and coat the stainless steel on the unit(s).
