to do it right you need multiple stage compounds if you are dealing with heavy scratches and dents ETC, if you just want a good polish use T-CUT and a dolly buff on a dremil, the steel will come up like a mirror, if you just want to clean it then perfume free soap an old tooth brush and warm water...Stainless does get grubby and darkens a bit a clean with soap will really brighten it up Wink
