Scratch on stainless steel Kenmore fridge

Hi - I have a very light scratch on the front of my Kenmore fridge - someone tried to fix by using a brillo pad - any suggestions for trying to fix? The scratch is not deep and the area that the brillo pad was used is fairly small. Can you help? Thanks!

Brillo a little harsh, finer steel wool would be better ive even used the scour side of the sponge, using wd40 as a "cutting oil" lightly go over scratched area. look close and follow the grain of the S/S. just likje wood S/S has a grain direction

If they are shallow scratches you could try using Lemon Pledge... that covered up really small scratches on mine and also stops fingerprints on the stainless steel.

How do you get fine scratches of the stainless steel door?


Firstly remove the handle, find the "allen" screws at underside of handle ends. Start first with a coarse towel and "re-scratch" the area. If that was not enough becoming more aggressive, use much care/ gentle pressure- a 3m scotch brite #7447 "going with the grain", you in essence are removing those scratches with scratches. Use DeBruce Polish with the grain for rourine cleaning and touch-ups. We use DeBruce Polish on all of our stainless steel. Non-toxic, non-abrasive and odorless, DeBruce Polish also works on glass cook tops. We get DeBruce Polish at debrucepolish.com.

Scratches on stainles steel door


IF IT IS BRUSHED STAINLESS, AND THE SCRATCHES ARE REALLY BAD, YOU COULD TRY SOME STEEL WOOL TO SOFTEN THE SCRATCHES, BUT IT WILL BE A TRADE OFF OF MINIMIZING THE SCRATCHES AND CAUSING A SMEARED LOOK TO THE BRUSHED STAINLESS PATTERN.

SCRATCHED STAINLESS STEEL SINK


Have you tried a really fine steel wool? I don't know if this would work. I have stainless steel farmhouse sink, front exposed all stainless steel. My contractor scratched it up horribly when he was putting it into the kichen. he fixed it amazingly with a fine steel wool pad. I don't know if your scratch is too deep for that but it couldn't hurt. The scratches on our sink were surface but very noticeable. Hope this helps.
