    Removing stains on stainless ladder from acid or chlorine drops

    Hello, new to this great forum. I have found answers to most of my questions, but can't seem to find anything on this one...

    I have stains that appear suspiciously like drops on my stainless steel ladder. They are above the waterline and I suspect we were just too careless when adding liquid chlorine. Any suggestions on how to remove them? Thank you!

    I think you can see from this picture that whatever caused the stains seemed to run. I have tried a few gentle cleaners but I suspect that something like a stainless steel polish would work. Thanks!

    Stainless steel comes in many types and grades, and usually is not stain-proof, but stain-LESS.

    Bleach, when put on stainless, it causes a slight oxidation, which is what you have.

    You have a mirrored surface, so you are in for a LOT of polishing. Go to an auto parts store, and get a product specifically for polishing chrome or other metals. Use some super soft cotton towels, and buff it until it's good as new.
