Another factor to consider when choosing the right multi-purpose cleaner is whether the cleaner will also get rid of a foul smell such as the putrid smell of pee, fetid smell of feces and etc.

This is because stainless steel contains chromium which reacts to oxygen in the air and forms a “passive” protective film over the steel. This prevents problems like rust and reduces stains and discolouration. However, this protective film may deteriorate when cleaned with a cleaner that isn’t intended for cleaning stainless steel.

The cleaner will also need to provide a layer of protection that protects against smudging and staining as they are prone to fingerprints and smudges.
