I saw a post asking about a cleaner for stainless steel. I would love to have all stainless in my house because it is the easiest to clean. I got spoiled working in restaurants where all the counters are stainless and the walk-ins etc. All you really need to do to clean them is use a linen towel and get it wet with hot water (as hot as you can stand it), wring it out then fill a spray bottle with hot hot water and add a little bleach. Spray and wipe, then use a dry linen cloth to pick up any left over moisture. This is how you will get that shine.

Over the winter our stainless steel grill got tarnished. I tried a stainless steel cleaner I found in the store, but it only lightened it a little. Does anyone have any information on how to get it shining again. Please help if you can. Thanks so much.

Try "Barkeeppers Friend" dry with a damp "Scotch" scrubber and rub. Keeps my stainless steel shiny. (07/13/2010)
I use white vinegar to polish my stainless steel. I use it on pots, pans, sink, garbage can, and silverware.
I also use it to remove grease from anything and everything. It also keeps bugs away. My dishes all shine like new. Inside of the microwave cleans easily with vinegar. It takes care of smelly drains. It removes gunk from the sink drain which is out of reach. It makes cleaning a refrigerator very easy.
Baking soda, added to the white vinegar, is a combination which will clean, deodorize, sanitize and take care of almost everything. (08/10/2010)
Tips for shining stainless steel. Post your ideas.
Use club soda in a spritzer bottle to shine stainless steel.

Rubbing alcohol in a spray bottle works well for me, but no smoking when you are using it. Works well on glass and mirrors too and is incredibly cheap.
