    I had question, about stainless steel railing, how to make it brighter and closer to the surface of the mirror, what is needed daubing?

    Thanks.

    It needs to be polished, then re-pacified. Try buffing it with stainless polish, then use a conditioner to keep the surface looking nice.

    then use a conditioner to keep the surface looking nice.

    Between polishings , mix Ospho with a bit of Joy.

    The acid will go after any loose iron molecules in the SS surface, the Joy just holds it in place to work.

    This is an old trick fixing up Tiawan boats that have mucho SS but were never electropolished.

    Thank you all!
    Taiwan boats that have much SS but were never electropolished, so if it can electropolar, that will be better to look?
    I don't now what is Ospho with a bit of Joy, can you explain more detailed?
    What's Ospho and conditioner? I'm new for fix SS :(

    Sometimes I'm quite sad or even a bit irritable when I mix my Ospho :(

    Will it still work as well as Ospho mixed with joy ? :p

    I'm tired and in a silly mood:D
