I used the SC Johnson product fantastic on my refrigerator. Now it has lots of streaks on it that I can’t get out. Any ideas?

    Hi Lori, is it possible it is a product with Bleach in it? You could try vinegar to get it off. You can also try a paste of baking soda and water. Hopefully one will help to get it off. I asked if there was possibly bleach in the solution because if so, it may not come off :(

    Try using Stainless Steel cleaner. I use Sprayway brand. Hope it helps.

    I have found Weiman's stainless steel cleaner to be a quality product.

    It is available in different formats -aerosol spray, pump spray, and wipes.

    Not all stainless steels are equal. You may have affected the finish. Use a stainless steel cleaner and hope for the best. Then use mineral oil and apply it with a clean cloth and wipe off with another cloth.

    hello. You might consider calling your manufacturer and asking their recommendations. I use Weimans with great results on my all my ss appliances.

    You are going to need to rub quite a bit with a cleaning solution to remove the film left. I would use white cleaning vinegar and a microfiber rag. Once you have all the residue removed, clean with only a damp microfiber cloth.

    use the stainless cleaner to get rid of those marks

  • Try a stainless steel cleaner/polish, specially that, and it should help. If not, contact the manufacturer for suggestions.

    You could also try Windex to remove the cleaner. Let dry well then use either WD 40 or wymans stainless steel cleaner

    Stainless Steel has grain, (like wood). No matter what you use , be sure to wipe with the grain (usually up and down not cross wise).
