Stainless steel is a metal alloy that is highly resistant to stains and rusting. Unfortunately, some types of stainless steel are relatively soft and susceptible to scratching. Avoid scratches by avoiding coarse steel wool or tough abrasives to clean stainless steel flatware. Remove light scratches from stainless steel flatware yourself, and take the flatware to a professional if the scratches are particularly deep.

Rub the olive oil into the scratches on the stainless steel flatware. Rub in the direction of the stainless steel grain. This will not remove the scratches but it will hide them as much as possible.
Gently rub the scratches with a non-metal abrasive pad if you can still see the scratches. Rub in long strokes, following the direction of the stainless steel grain. Apply uniform pressure to blend the scratch with the rest of the stainless steel.
