Does Stainless Steel Rust?

We hear information and questions from people who use stainless steel metal products, thermoses or coffee mugs, about the fact that rust sometimes occurs in “Stainless Steel” products.

Does Stainless Steel rust? Unfortunately, the answer to the question is “it rusts”.

Rusting will occur in steels exposed to oxidation.

Stainless steel stains less easily than other iron-based metals, but it is not “stainless” in the strict sense of the word.

In products that are left damp, the water droplets inside may form rust, especially when the lid remains closed. You can wipe the spots where rust is visible by rubbing it with carbonated water or vinegar water, with a cloth or tissue paper.
