How do I clean my stainless steel appliances?

Stainless steel appliances look great in the kitchen but are prone to water marks and fingerprints. Here is how to keep those appliances looking clean and new.

Use a stainless steel cleaner which provides cleaning and polishing. We recommend the Affresh brand of stainless cleaner. This can be applied directly on the stainless and rubbed off with a dry cloth using a firm, circular and overlapping motion. Water is not recommended with the cleaner as it can leave messy streaks and water marks which are difficult to get off.

Use a microfiber cloth. Heavy rags or paper towels can scratch the stainless and leave residue behind. Microfiber cloths have short, fine fibers and won’t damage the finish.

Clean your stainless steel appliances once a week for the best results. Smudges and

fingerprints will be harder to get off if they have been sitting for an extended period of time. Regular maintenance will keep stainless looking shiny and new.

If you are in the market for new appliances, KitchenAid, Maytag and Whirlpool offer the new Finger Print Resistant Stainless Steel. These appliances have the same modern look but are easier for cleaning and smudge-resistant. They can be wiped clean with just mild soap and water.

If you have any questions please call our office. Myself and my staff are always happy to help.
