    My quick fix is baking soda and vinegar. It fizzes, which is kind of fun, but needs to be spread all over and let set for awhile. I usually leave it and forget to get back before it dries, but I don't think that makes a difference. Just sprinkle it with water, and rub it around the surface, especially crevices and faucets. Rinse off. It takes off soap and hard water scum, which is a huge problem for me.

    Clean with Bar Keepers Friend. Coat with mineral spirits and let it sit for a while to soak in. Wipe off the excess.

    Hi Charlene,

    I use what Delle said - baking soda then vinegar and water to get it clean. The next step is to use a vegetable oil on a soft cloth and rub it into the stainless steel in the direction of the grain. A lot of people don't realize that stainless steel needs to occasionally needs to be oiled - just like wood. After applying a thin coat of oil, use another clean cloth to polish the stainless steel. When you are done it will look like new - and you haven't used an chemicals. :) -Linda
