Giving shine to your stainless steel items

You might have come across various uses of Olive Oil, right? Whether it’s to moisturize your skin or to recondition worn leather. But you might not know that it can also give a perfect shine to your stainless steel surfaces. While ammonia or other common cleaners might corrode stainless steel, olive oil polishes it effectively without degrading it.
