How to clean your stainless steel appliances

Stainless steel appliances add a sleek and modern look to your home but tends to collect fingerprints and grime over time. One of the best things about stainless steel is how easily it can be cleaned to make it look brand new again. While cleaning stainless steel isn’t rocket science, here are a few tips to keep in mind for a seamless process:

Cleaning Stainless Steel Appliances

Cleaning stainless steel appliances such as dish washers or ovens is a quick and easy thing to do:

  1. Begin by wiping down surfaces with a damp sponge using a mixture of warm water and a mild detergent. 

  2. Then dry the surfaces with a clean rag or paper towels. 

  3. Consider applying a stainless steel cleaning product to avoid fingerprints and increase shine. During application, wipe the product in the grain of the steel.

  4. Finish by wiping down all surfaces. 

Cleaning Stainless Steel Refrigerators 

Stainless steel refrigerators are great for their appearance and durability, but quickly accumulate smudges, fingerprints, and stains after regular use. Fortunately, cleaning your stainless steel refrigerator is easy: 

  1. Wipe down the surface with a damp cloth or sponge using water and mild detergent. Make sure to focus on the handles and water dispenser, if your refrigerator has one. 

  2. If there are any noticeable stains or spots, wipe them down with white wine vinegar.

  3. Finish by applying a stainless steel cleaning product with a microfiber cloth and wipe down all surfaces. 

Cleaning Stainless Steel Sinks

If you have a stainless steel sink, remember to clean it regularly to remove any left over food and beverage debris:

  1. Begin by applying a generous layer of baking soda over the entire sink’s surface and let sit for 15 minutes. 

  2. Scrub the surface of the sink with a toothbrush or sponge.

  3. Wash away any remaining baking soda with cool water. 

  4. For any noticeable stains, mix baking soda and lemon juice and repeat the process above. 

Keep Your Stainless Steel Appliances Looking New

One of the best things about stainless steel is how easy it is to keep it looking brand new. Cleaning stainless steel is as simple as wiping the surfaces down with a damp, soft rag. For tougher spots or a thorough clean, applying just a little bit of commercial polishing product will have your appliances shining in no time.
