Believe it or not, I have found the best S/S cleaner (especially for burned on crude on exhaust pipes, as well as the burnishing caused by heat), to be:
. If this product is not
available in your location look for a similar toilet cleaning liquid with the following chemical composition: Tallow Trimethylammonium Chloride 0.47% m/m
: Use an old toothbrush and a small amount of water - leave for 5 minutes and then washing it off. Reapply if surface badly coated with burned on street crude.
: This product only
works on Stainless Steel and not
Chromium finishes. While gloves should be used when applying the product, there is no reaction to aluminium engine cases -- I tried this out to make sure!
: None of the other Harpic 'colours' work! In other words they have different chemical compositions.
Talking to a rep here in South Africa the formula in the blue bottle is the same used commercially to clean S/S urinals
