How To Cleaning & Caring For Stainless Steel Trash Cans|TeeHoo

Nobody likes a stinky, slimy, sticky trash can, especially one that’s supposed to be sleek and shiny. One of the reasons stainless steel is a common material for multiple uses and settings is because it resists rust and corrosion. But, if stainless steel is not properly cared for, it defeats the purpose. Luckily, cleaning and maintaining a stainless steel trash can is pretty easy.


TeeHoo, we offer the highest quality stainless steel trash cans for homes, offices, restaurants, and more. We think it’s important to care for your trash cans. Continue reading to find out how you can clean and care for your stainless steel trash cans.


How To Clean The Outside Of A Stainless Steel Can

One of the best habits to adopt is to wipe down the steel on a regular basis with a damp, soapy washcloth.


Always wipe in the direction of the stainless steel “grain,” starting at the top of the unit and working your way down towards the floor.

Rinse the washcloth with clean water, wipes again to remove any soap; then finish with a wipe of a dry terry towel.

For heavier dirt and stains, use a nylon scrubbie, a mild detergent, and hot water. Be sure to rinse the surface and towel dry to prevent water spots.

To remove really tough dirt and stains, you can make a paste of baking soda mixed with liquid dish soap and gently scrub with a nylon scrubbie or an old toothbrush. If some stains remain, you can use undiluted vinegar, again scrubbing gently with a soft brush. Be sure to rinse and towel dry.

For stainless steel trash cans with scratches and discoloration, you can use stainless steel cleaners recommended to help reduce further damage, rust, and corrosion.


And remember:

DON’T use chlorine bleach or any product containing chloride.

DON’T use oven cleaners.

DON’T use steel wool, steel brushes, or highly abrasive scrubbing pads—these can cause scratches or leave a residue of small particles that may rust.

DON’T use abrasive cleansers on brushed stainless steel.

DON’T clean a stainless steel surface unless it is cool to the touch.

DON’T use gritty, dirty, or excessively hard water, as it can leave spots or brownish stains.

You may want to buff your units periodically with a stainless steel polish, lemon oil, or a silicone-based spray to maintain a lustrous finish. Just like before, apply the polish in the direction of the grain with a lint-free cloth; buff and dry with another lint-free cloth.

How To Clean An Inner Plastic Can

At least once a week: empty contents and wipe/scrub with warm soapy water until water runs clear. Don’t use steel wool, stainless steel polisher, bleach, salts or acids.

Extra mess can be scrubbed with a scouring pad or scrub brush. You can also plan to soak the bottom of the can in warm soapy water for 15 minutes to really make sure everything is clean.

Wipe dry with a towel and/or leave in the sun to dry.
