Streak-free Stainless Steel

Stainless steel appliances are popular all over the world. They are rust and corrosion-resistant. The material used is durable and shiny but the tag “stainless” is questionable because these appliances whether present in the kitchen or washroom are fingerprint magnet along with water spots, and streaks. Not only we have to clean these appliances for our daily use but also to maintain the shine and beauty.

How to effectively clean stainless steel:

Using oil: You can choose between baby oil, mineral oil, and olive oil. Their hydrophobic properties are good for the stainless steel by preventing it from rusting. The oil also brightens up the appliances and brings back the shine. You can use the oil along with vinegar or soap.

Soda: Soda is great for stains on stainless steel. This is especially helpful for stainless steel sinks. For sink stains, a scrub made from baking soda and club soda is very effective. Directly apply the soda on the stain and wipe it gently in the direction of the grain.

Lemon juice: The acidic properties of lemon juice remove the stains from stainless steel. Use it with vinegar or oil to get the maximum results.  For a great smelling stainless steel cleaner, extract the lemon juice from 4 to 6 lemons.  Mix the lemon juice with white vinegar and apply this solution directly to the appliance.  After rinsing it wth warm water, gently wipe it with a clean cotton cloth.

Glass cleaner: Fingerprints can be a big problem with stainless steel appliances.   Even on a clear shiny surface of the appliance, fingerprints can make it look really bad. However, they can easily be removed by any glass cleaner in the market.  Spray the cleaner on the appliance directly and clean it with newspaper or microfiber cloth which leaves no marks and residue behind.

Commercial Stainless Steel Cleaners: Commercial cleaners can be purchased at any grocery store or discount store.   In addition to cleaning, some of them are quite effective enough to polish the surface and restore the shine of the appliance. These cleaners are chemically based and also are more expensive than the other options on this list.

Water: The best way to clean your appliances is with water. All you need is lukewarm water and cloth. For regular cleaning daily, you cannot always rely on other options as they require more items and efforts. Water simply removes the dirt, spots, and fingerprints easily and it can be used as many times as u want because it has no harmful effects on the appliances.
