Caring for your compact kitchen

Care guide

Step 1

For our Standard Kitchens and Tea Points Elfin Kitchens recommends that you simply use warm soapy water and a soft cloth and dry thoroughly.

Step 2

Fingerprints show up clearly on brushed steel, but the solution to this is very simple. Clean the stainless steel with warm soapy water and dry thoroughly. Using a dry non-abrasive cloth lightly oil the surface going in the direction of the grain. (Any household oil can be used Vegetable/Olive/Baby Oil).

Step 3

You can also buy special Stainless steel cleaner from your supermarket. Please follow the instructions carefully.

Step 4

Stainless steel is particularly sensitive to scratches so avoid scouring powders or abrasive sponges!

Step 5

Clean your stainless steel work tops regularly with lime scale remover to stop the build up of scale deposits. This is readily available from your supermarket; please follow the manufacturer’s instructions.
