How to Clean The Metal

Start by soaking your lint free cloth in the warm, soapy water. Wash over the stainless steel and dry off with the towel.

Look over the urn for heavily soiled areas that need spot treating. If you see areas that need to be cleaned more intentionally, you can do one of two things.

Use a little rubbing alcohol on the heavily soiled spot. If the dirt does not come off, then you might need to make a paste out of the baking soda.

Mix 2 tablespoons of baking soda with a few drops of water and scrub the stainless steel with a soft cloth. Wash off with warm soapy water and dry.

To get fingerprints or streak marks off of your urn, then you can use glass cleaner. Simply spray over the surface with the glass cleaner and then wipe with a paper towel.
