The Best Way to Clean Stainless Steel Appliances

Stainless steel looks beautiful unless it's covered in fingerprints. (I personally love the perfect little hand prints though.) You can easily get that beautiful shine back with these simple tips.
You will need:
Hot Soapy Water
Cleaning Cloth
Microfiber Cloth
Glass Cleaner
First wipe away the finger prints, crusty old food and snot (for those of you with smaller children) with a cleaning cloth dipped in hot soapy water. Once dry, spray your microfiber cloth with a little bit of glass cleaning solution and buff your appliance. This will help to ensure a streak free shine.
*Bonus Tip*
Have unsightly water drip stains down the front of your refrigerator? Apply a small amount of baby oil (or veggie oil) to a paper towel and buff. The water drip stains should disappear and your fridge should be more finger print resistant now.
Be sure to check out the blog for additional tips.
Take a look at the difference!
First, have a finger smudged stainless steel appliance.
Wipe down the appliance with hot water and soap. This will get rid of crusties, greasy finger prints and snot.
For a streak free shine, spray a microfiber cloth with a little bit of glass cleaner and buff.
After! You'll have a finger print free, shiny and streak free appliance.
