It's not a rust problem, it's a cleaning problem with lesser grade SS. My walls require a two step process to clean. The 1st step using the purple stuff from Sam's Club (ProForce Heavy Duty Degreaser) Model:
7000014 Item #: 902177. Good stuff
takes any grease off and sucks the oil out of the SS. So it leaves the SS dull and sometimes streaks. The 2nd step a SS polish puts the oil back in and makes it look like new.
However my SS counter tops are a breeze to clean with any good window foam and especially with Sprayway Glass Cleaner from Sam's Club Model:
SW050CLUB Item #: 611788. No need to do anything to the counter tops other than spray and polish and they look like new. I was thinking it was ether the thickness or the quality/grade of the SS. What do you think? I have read the
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stainless_steel web page 3 or 4 times and it's the most garbled hodgepodge of information I have ever read. I'd love a good answer as I'm ready to order SS for the walls in my Step Van. And I want something that is as easy to clean as my current counter tops, no matter the cost per sheet.
PS Sorry didn't mean to throw anyone off with the magnet thing but my walls will hold a magnet but my counter tops won't. So I figured the amount of steel vs other alloys may make the difference in the two.
