Does anyone know how to remove hard water stains on a brushed stainless steel refrigerator?

Cleaning a Brushed Stainless Steel Refrigerator


I used to work in a restaurant that had a brushed stainless steel refrigerator. One of my jobs was to clean it every day. The boss had me pour pure mineral oil(this is very thick and has no fragrance) onto a soft cloth(we used bird'seye baby diapers) and wipe it down every night. The boss said mineral oil "feeds" stainless steel. I never knew what that meant but that fridge did look gorgeous! They used to sell pure mineral oil in drug stores, it was on the laxative shelf.

I would suggest wiping the spots with vinegar. There is also a great stainless steel cleaner called Cameo that I use on my sinks -- that would probably work also. It's a powder and comes in a 'can' similar to Comet -- but it doesn't have bleach and is just for stainless steel. I found it in The Great Indoors store. (05/28/2007)

My mom always rubbed our stainless steel oven with baby oil, so I guess after you clean it with vinegar, you may want to shine it with oil. (05/29/2007)

Home Depot and other big box stores as well as hardware stores sell stainless steel cleaners in an aerosol can that will clean your frig very well.Do not use powders as they act as an abrasive and will scratch the stainless steel surface. (05/29/2007)
