There are many types of stainless steel and then there are steel that have a stainless look. Stainless is made with different amount of alloys such as chrome and nickel and other elements.The lower alloyed stainless will rust but can be cleaned easily. Some appliances have what is called clean steel that gives a look of stainless.Those will not hold up as well as a good grade of stainless. To hold cost down manufactures will go with cheap materials.

I just bought a 24oz bottle of stainless steel cleaner spray from the 99cent store and it works great! It is made by Pro Power. I've seen them at stores for $4 on up for much smaller amount of ounces. Hope you can find some at the $1 store or a similar store.

Many restaurants shine their stainless with WD-40.

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?

Cleaning a Brushed Stainless Steel Refrigerator

Diana,

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)
