Wednesday''s Ask the Experts question from a cleaning professional on the International Custodial Advisors Network (ICAN) "Ask the Experts" page: Some one in our facility used a scratch pad to remove stripper from a stainless steel elevator door. A very dull scratched swirl is now showing on this door. I tried stainless steel polish to hide it, but the spot is still showing. What will hide this spot on the door?
Answer #1:
Evidently, the scratch pad was too aggressive and was pulled across the grain. Elevator doors normally have the stainless steel grain going top to bottom. You can try using a white nylon scouring pad and the stainless steel cleaner. Scrub it only with the grain.

Answer #2:
A California company exhibiting recently at ISSA/INTERCLEAN® has developed a stainless scratch repair process that works to restore fully the damaged surface.
There seems to be a problem on their website, but you can e-mail them at — Lynn E. Krafft, ICAN/ATEX editor,
