Citrus stains on stainless



(-----) 2007

We are finally middle aged and the kids have left so we treated ourselves to stainless appliances, We are also kitchen designers and some of our clients are also sharing our frustrations about cleaning stainless. I have lemon juice drips on my stainless fridge which has left discolored lines. Nothing seems to take them away. I understand that citrus can stain stainless permantly. Is there any way of cleaning these. Also, one of my burners on my stainless stove was malfunctioning and put a blueish brown stain where the flame was. Can that be gotten rid of?

Try with 4,75 gr sodium gluconate/4,75 gr citric acid/5 gr tartaric acid/100 ml water solution(according to one expired US patent)-after treatment rinse well!Some proprietary product must exist too.Hope it helps and good luck!
