Stainless steel appliances and even counter tops and sinks have become very popular in the past few years, and the trend seems to be continuing.  I agree stainless steel appliances give a clean, sleek appearance to a kitchen, but scratches and fingerprints can easily take over and ruin the look.

If you search online or ask your friends on Facebook, you will probably hear water, Windex or even baby oil as the best stainless steel cleaners.  All of these may work, but here are some cleaning tips from Clean & Simple Cleaning to always keep the stainless steel in your home looking great.

Cleaning Stainless Steel Appliances

Routine cleaning of Stainless Steel

One can accomplish it by using warm water and a cloth. It is the least risky option for cleaning stainless steel. Furthermore, honestly, just plain water works to clean in most situations.  Wipe down the appliances when you notice marks.

Dry Appliances and Stainless Steel Surfaces

Make sure to dry stainless steel with a towel or cloth after cleaning or spill to prevent water spots. It is essential since minerals in water can leave marks on stainless steel.

Follow the Stainless Steel Grain

Wipe in the directions of the polish lines for best and most beautiful results and to eliminate scratching the surface.

Use Microfiber Cleaning Cloths

These cloths are a great option to use when cleaning stainless steel. It is because Microfiber cleaning cloths do a great job in absorbing all of the water. Also, microfiber cleaning cloths are gentle, so it does not scratch.

Use Specialized Stainless Steel Cleaner

Use a specialized stainless steel cleaner for a polished clean on a continual basis.  You should spray it directly on the cloth to control how much you use, eliminate getting any residue on the floor or cabinets and eliminate drip marks on the stainless steel surface.  Clean & Simple Cleaning uses Sprayway’s Stainless Steel Cleaner and Polish.
