How do you clean a stainless refrigerator?

Thanks to the person who recommended vinegar!! It really worked great followed by a little pledge or oil to bring back the "brushed" look of my stainless.
Help! I had marks on my stainless steel refrigerator that would not come off using any type of cleaner! I used a metal polish (the kind that looks like cotton saturated in wax) and now have marks that look black in different light. How can I get these marks off?

To several of those that have many stainless appliances, WD-40 is the most wonderful cleaner & polisher. I use it on our stainless steel water fountain after I use vinegar to remove the lime build-up, it polishes & removes any smudges and helps to repel future marks & easier to clean the next time. WD-40 has many uses & this is only one of them. It does not remove any of the stainless steel.

Does anyone know how to remove hard water stains on a brushed stainless steel refrigerator?
Diana from Willow Creek, CA
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.
