You will simply have to spread the flour over the affected areas of steel and put a little vinegar on the sponge. Rub gently and then rinse with plenty of water. The steel will be perfect!

For metals

Let’s conclude the alternative uses of flour by seeing to its application for metals! If they are dirty, oxidized, or you simply want to polish them, all you have to do is create a paste with water and flour. Spread the mixture and rub it in with a soft sponge, then rinse and there you go!
