Stainless steel appliances bring a modern, fresh and high-end feel to any kitchen. When your new stainless steel fridge, stove, dishwasher, even toaster arrives, it has that sparkly shine to it that says hello I’m new here. If you’re like me you even prolong taking off that protective plastic film because you don’t want it to get dirty. You finally take off the plastic because this isn’t your grandma’s house. Then enter kids, or big kids (husbands), and life…that new hello it’s me I’m new here shine is gone from that gorgeous stainless steel appliance. I know it’s a sad day, but luckily I’ve found the solution. Well three solutions, yup three ways to bring that old thing back and make the stainless steel appliances feel like the new girl again. It doesn’t matter if its day 2 or 2,222, here’s my favorite stainless steel cleaner.
How to Clean Stainless Steel
Stainless steel is surprisingly easy to clean. You just have to wipe away any streaks or smudges. If your kids like to touch everything food related before touching the fridge handle, yes yogurt I mean you, you might want to use the stainless steel appliance cleaner spray step up your game. Get in there and buff it out. For a quick daily wipe down, I’m totally grabbing the wipes.
While we are here, don’t forget to move that fridge and your stove too if possible and clean both the top and underneath—no dust bunnies here. Extra bonus points if you clean the sides too.
How to Shine Stainless Steel Appliances
After using the stainless steel appliance cleaner, you may think this isn’t the shine I was looking for. Just wait. The magic is coming. For that day 1 shine to your appliances, be sure to buff with a clean microfiber cloth afterward. If you don’t have a cloth, you can use a paper towel, but the cloth is worth it for maximum shine.
Until next time, happy cleaning friends.
