Cleaning Stainless Steel with no Headaches!
Stainless Steele is beautiful, shiny, and sleek….but can also be very frustrating to clean so that it STAYS beautiful, shiny, and sleek. These simple tips will make it easy.
First, you need to understand the direction of the grain. Just like wood, steel has a grain and cleaning in the direction of the grain will give the best results.
Next, if your appliance is covered in oily fingerprints or food splatter, it is best to start with good old dish soap. Dish soap is amazing in cleaning off excess oils and simplifies the polishing process. Put just a drop on a moist microfiber rag and clean in the direction of the grain of your appliance. When finished, clean and dry thoroughly with a fresh microfiber rag.
Finally polish with a good Stainless Steel cleaner and a clean microfiber rag, always in the direction of the grain. At Mint Cleaning, a residential cleaning company in Jacksonville Fl, we use the beloved Sprayway Stainless Steel Cleaner, an oil-based formula that cleans and coats for protection. But you can go as simple as a dab of Mineral Oil.
Toss the oily polishing rag in the washer, since it’s covered with an oily product, and would make other surfaces oily instead of clean!
