Remember, stainless steel is not necessarily "permanent", and *can* rust.
We once had a technician in the science animal house who used Brillo to
"clean" all of the stainless steel animal cages.   The result:   RUST.   And
a $40,000 bill for the taxpayers to buy a complete set of new stainless
steel animal cages (the "old" ones were less than a year old).

So, remember, be careful when you clean anything of stainless steel, and
especially don't use even the finest of steel wool (or Brillo pads) to clean
mineral deposits, dried grease, etc.
