Cleaning Stainless Steel Appliances

Diana Waldeck Uncategorized

These appliances are sleek and simplistic, and we definitely see the appeal of choosing them. However, if you are noticing that they are smudged and have fingerprints and you’d like to do something about that, here’s a quick guide to solving your problem. 

Check Instructions from Manufacturer

The instructions provided can be incredibly specific when it comes to which cleaners you should be using to clean your appliance. Don’t risk voiding your warranty or getting a less than desirable result. Always read the instructions.

Don’t Use Abrasives

These appliances are made of metal, which is why people tend to think they can use anything to clean them. Keep in mind, though; this material does scratch easily. It’s important to avoid using abrasive tools or cleaners like ammonia, scouring powders, bleach, oven cleaner, scrubbing pads, and steel wool. It can also be a good idea to use distilled water to clean your appliances if you have hard water. Hard water can leave spots and streaks. 

Know Which Homemade Cleaners You Can Use

For this, there are three great options. Whichever you choose, though, you should still do a spot test. You can use olive oil and vinegar, baby oil and dish soap, or club soda to clean your appliances.
