    I recently acquired some stainless Leedal graduates. Some of them have what appear to be chemical stains on the sides and bottom. I have rinsed with water and wiped with a cloth but they still remain.

    Does anyone have suggestion on how to remove these stains?

    Thanks

    You could try something like Softscrub cleanser, and if that is not abrasive enough, try Comet.

    Try Bar Keepers Friend or silver polish.
