Cleaning Stainless Steel Appliances

Just when your kitchen's stainless steel appliances seem doomed to be forever smudged and streaked, here comes Mr Stainless Shine to the rescue. My personal 5 step clean and shine method will make even the worst stainless look new again.


Step 1: Aquire a "Mr Clean, Magic Eraser " cleaning pad. Pour rubbing alcohol onto pad. GENTLY rub cleaning pad with the grain of the surface until all of the drip marks and finger prints are gone. Let air dry. Dispose of cleaning pad properly.

Step 2: With a micro-fiber cloth, wipe entire surface with clean hot water to remove all residues. Dry with a second dry micro-fiber cloth.

Step 3: Using a third micro-fiber cloth, pour baby oil onto the cloth and rub with the grain. Cover entire surface. When done, you may find that the oil is heavy in some spots and thin in other spots. Just try pushing a little harder while buffing with the grain till the surface looks evenly distributed.

Step 4: Using yet another micro-fiber cloth,fresh and clean and free of anything, buff the surface until it shines like BRAND NEW.


Step 5: Once done,for maintained, you may have to wipe surface with a clean micro-fiber cloth to occasionally redistribute oil and high gloss shine.

Disclaimer: As with all new cleaning techniques, please try this method in an inconspicuous spot that will not be seen if it does not work as described.

Thanks and good luck with that pesky stainless steel that's no longer pesky.

Cleaning Stainless Steel Appliances

Every week I put a little mineral oil on a soft dish cloth that I use just for that purpose, and shine away. I've never had to use anything else, and family members as well as two contracters I've hired, now use it to polish up stainless steel they use. (11/12/2009)

Are you kidding me? who has time for the 5 steps? Really, just use Lemon Oil! I have all SS appliances and all I do is put some Lemon Oil on a micro fiber cloth, and clean as I would anything else! I always have friends telling me how great my kitchen appliances look! (11/21/2009)
