How do I get water spots off of stainless steel?
Barkeeper's Friend is excellent for this.
There are several ways to clean stainless steel that should work on your tea kettle.
Maybe one of them will work for you:
1. Gather a one medium size towel and one hand towel; lay by sink. Place tea kettle in sink; heat a pot of plain water to very hot and pour hot water over tea kettle.
Immediately dry with larger towel and finish off with smaller towel. This will many times remove spots and leave surface very shiny.
2. Add enough white vinegar to three tablespoons of baking soda to form a thick paste. Apply it with a soft rag or sponge and scrub until the stains disappear, then wipe the kettle with a damp cloth. Barkeepers Friend can be used instead as it does not leave scratch marks either.
3. Place a small amount of mineral oil on a cloth and wipe surface. Use warm soap and water to remove mineral oil but dry immediately with a soft cloth.
4. I have heard of using Windex but I cannot vouch for this.
