Stainless steel finishes on your appliances can certainly add a touch of elegance to your kitchen, but they can be tricky to keep clean. Whether it’s greasy finger smudges or sticky residue from putting up magnets on your appliance, this little guide will help you keep your stainless steel surfaces spotless.
When it comes to stainless steel, a gentle approach is always best. Don’t use harsh, abrasive cleaning products. Instead, opt for a soft cloth or sponge and cleaning products specifically for stainless steel. Even warm water will do the trick, especially if you add a tablespoon of baking soda for every 16 oz.
Dampen your cloth or sponge with the water or cleaning product, then wipe in the direction of the grain on the surface. If you look closely, you’ll see that the grain on stainless steel surfaces with either be vertical or horizontal. Once you’ve wiped the surfaces, go over them with a soft, dry cloth to get rid of any water marks. Finally, you can apply a dab of stainless steel polish, taking care again to wipe in the direction of the grain.
There you have it… just follow these steps, and you’ll have your stainless steel surfaces looking, well stainless, in no time!
