I would like to know how to get the bluish "stain" off stainless steel cutlery. It seems to come from the dishwasher.

I don't know how to get the stain off, as the beauty of stainless, is that it doesn't tarnish or stain, however, I know that it will stain if you spill a strong base (like drain cleaner) on it. Anyway, my point is, when you do get it clean, use a different detergent in your dishwasher. I expect it is the detergent that is causing the stain.
I put vinegar in my stainless steel cook ware. It takes that "color" away. Test a small spot first!

I have a stainless steel canteen of cutlery. I don't use it much and it is tarnished. It is from Sheffield in England. Washing alone doesn't work to remove the tarnish. Any ideas?
