 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.

      take a downey dryer sheet dip in a bucket of warm water and wash your shower doors try on a small area first in case your doors have a manufacturers coating - wash the area and then rinse and dry with a microfiber towel

    It’s the peroxide in the shaving cream that is cleaning the product so be careful if you’re putting it on dark colors!!!!!!!!

    I let my grandchildren use shaving cream to “draw” pictures, letters, etc. on bath tile for fun during a bath and when they “erase” it with a cloth, MY TILE IS CLEAN!
