I had read about the 3M Maroon pads and that I might need some for some firearm refinishing products I had coming up. Well I searched a lot of stores locally and couldn't find any. I found these here on Amazon and decided to take the plunge on the big ole box of pads.
Very glad I did, very huge pads..I cut them in half with a pair of scissors. Works like you would expect a 3M scrotch-brite pad to work.
Below is a 3M Grit chart I found online, you can see what color and part number would equal the equivilant in sandpaper.

I clean my stainless steel with this. I use it with Krud Kutter to prep walks before painting all with fantastic results and with less effort and expense using fancy, pricey products. I love this pad and the all the positive reviews aren't lying....these are worth having around and buying them in bulk. 10 star product not 5, inside the home or workshop.
Disclaimer: I don't work for 3M, I know of no one who does and no one paid me for singing the praises of product performance. I would buy these again in a heartbeat and if you do need to remove gel stain these work really well even without the use of paint thinner way better than sandpaper for removing the surface stickiness. Please peel me off the ceiling because my heart is singing. Thanks for reading and hope this inspires someone else caught in a sticky and time consuming predicament.
After investing, literally, thousands of dollars in new stainless steel appliances & stainless steel sinks for my semi-professional kitchen at home, after just a couple months I started to notice various areas suffering from what looked like small brown "rust" type spots. Interestingly, these "rust" spots were not only on the two brand new stainless steel sinks I have (unique brands of sinks mind you), but also on some of the appliances that are stainless steel. This issue was especially puzzling because, as I alluded to earlier, the stainless steel products were all brand new and were from three distinct manufactures (e.g., Viking, Sub Zero, and Elkay). Of course, the rust/brown marks/pitting only was evident on areas where water had been present (e.g., sink with running water, oven/stove with water splashes, frige/freezer with splashes, etc.).
After much investigation I determined that although my fresh water source was otherwise filtered and carefully softened, there was nevertheless slightly elevated levels of iron in the water. Thus, as the water came in contact with the stainless steel items it caused low-level galvanic corrosion.
**** Take home message:
The end result was, after conferring with the various engineers at the appliance manufacturers, they *all* uniformly recommend that I use this specific type of abrasive pad (i.e., 3M Scotch-Brite model # 7447) on the stainless steel appliance surface (always cleaning with the 'grain' of the steel). Although the specific cleaning agent used with the Scotch-Brite 7447 pad did vary from engineer to engineer, they all stated that a good safe bet is the Bar Keepers Friend powder cleaner (just put the powder on the PAD first, add water sufficient to make it a paste).
So, using the Scotch-Brite 7447 with my cleaner, all the 'rust' or corrosion marks on the products vanished! My stainless steel appliances looked quite literally, like new again!
