Cleaning Products

Cleaning the exterior of a stainless-steel appliance (e.g., refrigerators, stoves, dishwashers, etc.) to make it sparkle and shine should be done using high-quality commercial stainless-steel cleaners or natural homemade solutions. Specifically designed stainless steel cleaners will not only clean and polish your appliance's surface but protect against fingerprints, watermarks, and grease stains. You can purchase these cleaning products in the form of wipes, aerosols, or sprays. On the other hand, natural homemade solutions are great because they're relatively inexpensive and work well. We recommend using double-strength vinegar in a spray bottle to clean, then just a drop of mineral oil (e.g., olive, canola, etc.) on a microfiber cloth to polish. Other natural solutions include a dish detergent and water mixture in a spray bottle, club soda, or a baking soda and water paste.

Things to Avoid

We strongly advise you to refrain from using abrasive sponges or scrubber pads and all-purpose cleaners that contain ammonia, chloride, or chlorine bleach. These ingredients can be damaging to the appliance's stainless-steel finish. Regardless of which product you choose, it is always important to carefully read and follow the label's directions.

After Applying the Product

Wipe down the appliance from top to bottom in the direction of the metal's grain to avoid leaving streaks. To ensure a clean and polished finish, gently buff the entire surface with a dry microfiber cloth. It's essential to spray and wipe down the front and handles and the top and sides of your appliance.
