I have a stainless steel fence in my garden. Its near the sea and constantly looks dirty and old. I think the steel is a Stainless 316 as opposed to 304.

What cost effective cleaner could I use or what techniques could be the best to clean the numerous posts.

Also, Is there anything that could preserve the stainless steel from future build-up?

  • Is it a corrosion problem or is it grit adhering to the fence? – Tyler Durden Jan 15 '15 at 16:32
  • I would say it is salts and slight yellow colour. More adhering – Hightower Jan 15 '15 at 17:42

    Barkeepers friend is the best product out there. We bought an old stainless steel stove that was coated in grease and it cut right through it. – joncon Mar 16 '15 at 19:55
  • Many moons ago I worked in a metal fab shop which made a ton of railings and if I recall correctly, we used Turtle Wax to protect the stainless steel. – popdan Oct 13 '15 at 14:43

I would add a protective coating to it. I personally have used Stainless Steel Defender. I use this on anything from dishwashers, fridges, and bar-b-que pits when I flip a house. I have been happy with the product but there may be other products that are better - this is the only one I have used.
