How To Clean Stainless Steel Appliances


First do a quick wipe of the appliance with a gentle liquid dish detergent & water mix, dry with a clean towel. After washing you’ll likely see the smudges and marks still hanging in there. You can buff out each smudge with a lint-free towel and some pressure, but try one of these items instead to bring back the shine and quickly remove those pesky fingerprints and smudges:
  • Olive Oil (just a dab will do)
  • Mineral Oil (Baby Oil)–Just a dab will do
  • Club Soda (especially good for removing streaks and heat stains)
  • Rubbing Alcohol
  • Vinegar (great for polishing too)
Apply directly to a lint-free cloth and wipe down surface, follow up with a clean dry cloth to bring appliance to a mark-free shine.
  • Avoid using cleaners or cleaning tools that are abrasive since they can mar the surface (even some soft-scrubbing creams can cause damage).
  • When cleaning the surface, wipe down the appliances along the grain of the stainless steel for best results.
  • Don’t clean stainless steel with bleach (diluted or otherwise), this can damage the finish.
  • Don’t forget to open the refrigerator or oven door, you’ll likely see a mess of smudges along the edge of the door.

Stainless steel appliances ie. refrig, dishwasher & oven


a quality s/s cleaner and a clean cloth sould do the trick for most stains, WD-40 also works to remove the stains, works really well, also leaves afilm on the metal to prevent stains from adhering, just dont use paper towells, the tend to leave fibers behind. and also look closely at the s/s there is a GRAIN pattern in the metal just like wood would have a grain!! be sure to wipe in the direction with the grain not against.
