Brushed stainless... you mean with the one directional grind marks on it? Not sure it matters I guess... I eventually went to using 3m Finesse it for polished stainless and fiberglass. Great stuff albeit somewhat expensive. I got rid of a whole bucket of other cleaners! I dont know why it wouldnt work on brushed SS. It's good for general cleaning or light rust.
What kind of cleaning? is it rusty?dirty? anything that will clean polished SS shouldnt scratch brushed SS.
