You can try a cotton rag and wd40

spray the wd40 on the cotton rag and wipe with the grain of the stainless steel then take a dry cotton rag and wipe up and down to remove the excess
ps it will also keep finger prints form forming so quickly after cleaning

I am not exactly sure how to remedy your specific issue but I know of a site that sells decorative covers for your appliances. Check them out at www.applianceart.com These guys have covers for all occasions and even stainless steel. Hope this helps.

How to remove scratches from stainless steel appliances


Try this at your own risk. Step 1 Consider using a product made for stainless steel2_bing.gif such as Scratch-B-Gone or Bar Keepers Friend (see Tips).
  • Step 2 Or, try spraying an all-purpose cleaner (such as Formula 4092_bing.gif) on the scratches.
  • Step 3 Use a non-metal scouring pad (such as Scotch-Brite pads) to rub the cleaner in, always rubbing in the direction of the grain.
  • Step 4 Keep the stainless steel wet with the cleaner as you work, and rinse the pad often.
  • Step 5 Rinse the surface and wipe dry.
  • jQuery('.article ol .image').each(function(i,e){ var $this = jQuery(this); $this.find('img').error(function(){ jQuery(this).remove(); $this.remove(); }); });
    Tips & Warnings
    • Before using any treatment on your stainless cookware, sink or appliances, it is wise to call the manufacturer for advice.
    • A new product called Scratch-B-Gone is touted as the "first aid kit for stainless steel." You can find it at many home improvement stores.
    • Bar Keepers Friend is another product for stainless steel. It can be found in most grocery or home improvement stores, or at www.barkeepersfriend.com.
    • To keep stainless steel sinks from scratching, put a rubber mat in the bottom of the sink to protect it.
    • Avoid using abrasive

    Discolorations/stains on stainless steel refrigerator surface


    Tried lots of suggestions to no avail. Tried a USED, dried out Scotch Brite Cook Top pad on the scrubber handle with Heavy Duty Fantastick sprayed on the pad. Scrubbed the drip marks at the bottom and wiped away to see if it was "scratching" or marri8ng the finish. Nope, but IT WAS taking the water marks off. So I did a bit more and checked again. Working great with no problems for the finish. Cleaned the whole watermark area. Rinsed of with wet cloth. Let it dry and then used my usual stainless cleaner, buffed to shine and walked away to post this. :> My refrig is an Aman too but I read other problem sites and it is common with stainless steel refrigs

    Water marks on stainless profiles


    I have used Bon Ami or Bar tenders Stainless steel cleaner (found in the section of Ajax or Comet Cleaner). Put some of the powder on soft cloth, wet it a little & scrub mark lightly; use clean rag w/water to clean off powder. Then use stainless steal spray cleaner (like the one found at Bath & Beyond) and rub in with soft cloth. I have found that the pull-out stainless steel cleaner wipes are too wet & just smear. Good luck

    Finish on "stainless steel" door is deteriorating


    Refrigerator was sold as 'stainless steel', but is not, a magnet won't stick to it.
    There are many different alloys that are called 'stainless' steel but all of them have some chrome, some nickel and some steel. Depending on the strength of the magnet and the specific alloy, it may or may not adhere. Generally, the higher chrome and nickel content, the less magnetic it will be.
    I think that the brushed surface of your fridge was coated with a kind of clear-coat to prevent fingerprints from adhereing to the brushed surface and that clear-coat is now missing in the areas of concern.
    The only cure for tha would be the wholesale removal of the doors and the remaining clear finish and then respraying it with a quality clear finsh.
    Ain't progress grand?
    We considered all stainless stuff for our new home a couple of years ago, decided we liked black better and now hate that too.

    Spots on freezer door


    Use a product like lime-away may help. These water spots are caused from calcium buildup. Lime-away or similar product will dissolve the calcium. Then use the stainless cleaner on it.
