Spotless Stainless. Also CitriSurf 2310 Gel. I have used both with essentially equal results. Both work best with surface temps above 75 degrees. The CitriSurf 2310 Gel is avaialble from The Rust Store. It is much less expensive than Spotless Stainless but it is available in gallons.

Rich is correct spotless stainless works great for normal use. If your stainless needs a major rescue go to a welding supply store and ask for Blue One Pickling Paste 130. Be careful with the stuff it is very "effective" you can experiment by diluting it to achieve best results

P21S (or S100 brand also) Polishing Soap works very well. German-made and similar to what their silversmiths use. Water-based soap cake for either rinse off or let dry and buff out. Works on many other surfaces like powder coated deck furniture, bathroom fixtures, glass, etc. Amazon sells. Under $20 and goes a long way.

Also generaic citric acid (the above are gelled citric acid) if you can soak it. Citric acid without gelling doesnt have enough dwell time.
