How to reduce scratches on stainless steel?
Have you just noticed small scratches on your refrigerator, your hood or your stainless steel sink? Above all, don’t panic, it is possible to naturally reduce these scratches on stainless steel.
Here are some handy tips and tricks for removing and erasing scratches from scratched stainless steel.
1. Remove scratches on stainless steel with the clay stone
A grandma’s first trick that works really well against scratches is the clay stone. I personally tested it on my scratched stainless steel fridge and the result is quite interesting!
Of course, if it’s deep scratches, it’s useless to test this product, but for small scratches on the surface of stainless steel, it’s really a great thing to test.
- Use a sponge, rub the Clay Stone and run the sponge over the scratched stainless steel.
- Gently rub in the direction of the brushing of the stainless steel to reduce scratches on the surface of the metal.

2. Erase scratches on stainless steel with toothpaste
If you don’t have Silverstone at home then you definitely have toothpaste right!? 🙂
Indeed, another trick to erase small scratches on stainless steel is to apply toothpaste as you would have done with the clay stone.
- Using a sponge (non-abrasive) and white paste toothpaste, rub the stainless steel in the direction of brushing.
- Let the toothpaste dry on the surface of the stainless steel and rinse with soapy water and a soft cloth.
You can very well use toothpaste to remove scratches on a hood or a stainless steel fridge, it works very well.
3. Use scratch paste for car bodywork
You will easily find Polish products for car bodywork in stores and online. This type of product can erase scratches on car bodywork and other metals including stainless steel.
The principle is the same, here is how to use it:
- Soak a sponge or a soft cloth in this « scratch eraser » paste and rub in the direction of the grain of the stainless steel.
- Rub again in the direction of the grain with a new microfiber cloth to polish the stainless steel.
Some erasing paste can unfortunately tarnish the stainless steel of the fridge or your plate. If this happens, use the Clay Stone to shine the stainless again to complete this trick.
