My kitchen sink is beginning to look a little less than lovely, so I decided to research the seriously proper way to care for stainless steel surfaces. Without even thinking about it, I went to my bookshelves and grabbed this book.
My sister gave me this book for Christmas two years ago. And I use it all the time because if you can think of a single thing you need to learn about caring for your home, inside or out, you're probably going to find it in this book.
Of course, Martha doesn't just say, "Use a gentle abrasive powder like Bar Keeper's Friend or Bon Ami." No ma'am. Martha says:
"Although stainless steel can scratch, over time the scratches mesh, forming a soft patina. (To learn more about the gauge of stainless steel, turn to Stainless-Steel Sinks, page 59.)"
"...soft patina...gauge of stainless steel"
You have to love Martha Stewart. LOL
This book works for me. I thought I'd share it with you because first of all, I love that she called it a homekeeping handbook instead of a housekeeping handbook, and second, if you don't have this book, you should and third, this is a fantastic gift idea.
This is one of the best Christmas gifts I've ever received.
