 Stainless Steel Appliances - It is said you can clean them with shaving cream.  I put this to the test...

I cleaned my microwave, my dishwasher, and my oven surface with shaving cream.

I learned not all stainless steel appliances are created equally.  While it cleaned my oven and microwave well with no trouble.  My dishwasher was a different story.

 It did indeed clean it up nicely, but I was left with some streaks.  What that meant is that my dishwasher stainless steel just needed an additional step which was to moisturize it with some olive oil - perfect after that!

    What kind of cloths do you suggest? Or do you use paper towels?

      I had always used paper towels on my appliances until one day when a serviceman was delivering a new stainless appliance. He told me never use paper towel on stainless steel because the small wood fibers in it will, over time, scratch the finish and to always use a microfiber cloth.. He said not all stainless finishes are the same, especially the new black stainless. Their color comes from a black finish that can be worn and will have the most problems. Some of the silver stainless finishes are the same and not truly stainess. Never realized that could be an issue. So now. out of precaution, I have switched to microfiber clothes.

    I haven't found anything yet that will take the soap scum off shower doors. I will try the shaving cream, but I really don't think this is going to work. How long do you leave it? do you run the shower first to get it damp? I'd like to know if this really works. My daughter uses, dawn detergent and baking soda mixed together and that's the only time, I've ever seen the doors without scum.

      Our soap scum used to be really bad due to hard water.

      This is what worked for us:

      1- equal parts of bottled lemon juice and dishwashing liquid in a hollow-handled kitchen scrubby. Leave on for a few minutes, rinse and repeat if necessary. (Avoid anything that can be damaged by acid: chrome, fibreglass , natural stone).

      2- The last person to shower each day, squeegees the doors, and walls.

      3- We no longer use bar soap (that was the best thing).

      We had a new shower installed a year ago, and we never have soap scum, since we always do #2 and #3.

      If your doors are etched from strong chemicals, nothing will remove the film. In that case, you could apply frosted film to the outside to hide it.
