Forget TV suppers and dinners on the go – when someone has taken the time to prepare a meal, it’s only right that you take the time to sit down and enjoy it. Sharing meal times with friends and family is one of life’s greatest pleasures, and with just a few simple measures, you can elevate your everyday eating experiences to Michelin star standard.
When it comes to impressing guests, any house-proud host will know the importance of knowing how to clean cutlery – no matter how good your cooking is, if you are serving it with a grubby knife and fork there’s bound to be complaints. Music, wine, and hospitality may be essential to an enjoyable dinner party, but remember, we eat with our eyes and clean cutlery and appealing presentation should not be reserved for the likes of royalty alone.
How to Clean Stainless Steel Cutlery
The iron alloy that comprises stainless steel may be difficult to stain, but it’s not resistant to fingerprints – cleaning stainless steel cutlery is therefore no more avoidable than any other knife, fork, or spoon.
- First clean your cutlery in hot water and washing up liquid. It’s important to remove excess food as quickly as possible after eating as the salt and acids will cause gradual damage.
- Hand dry with a clean, non-abrasive Jif cloth to remove any water spots. The quicker you dry your cutlery, the better, as the open air will cause unwanted natural drying marks.
