Stainless steel appliances are long-lasting and easy to clean but require a little extra care. In this article, we’ll discuss maintaining your stainless steel appliances and keeping them shiny and new.
Use Gentle Cleaners
It’s important to use gentle cleaners on your stainless steel appliances. Avoid abrasive cleaners, as they can scratch the surface and make it look dull. Also, steer clear of products with bleach or ammonia they’re too harsh for stainless steel. Instead, use a soft cloth and apply mild soap to it before starting your cleaning process.
Rubbing Alcohol will help remove fingerprints and dirt from the surface of your appliances without damaging them. It’s also safe for use on glass surfaces and stainless steel. You can clean off water spots or mineral deposits without worrying about harming anything else. Using a clean cloth or paper towel instead of directly applying rubbing Alcohol onto an appliance handle.
White Vinegar and Olive Oil
This method is more involved than just using plain vinegar, but it can do wonders for the shine of your stainless steel appliance. After pouring the vinegar and olive oil, mix them into an appropriate container, apply it to a cloth and rub it over your appliances. You’ll want to work in small sections at a time so that you don’t miss any spots or accidentally “polish” away some of your appliance’s original finish. Rinse thoroughly with warm water after each section has been cleaned.
Dish Soap and Olive Oil
One of the easiest ways to clean your appliances is by mixing dish soap with olive oil. Combining these two ingredients will give you a gentle scrubbing solution that will clean your kitchen appliance and leave it shining like new.
You can use a sponge or cloth, depending on what appliance you want to clean. However, if you’re cleaning something with delicate glass parts, using a soft cloth works much better because it won’t scratch them up as much as some sponges might.
Mineral Oil and Olive Oil
- Mix equal parts of mineral and olive oil in a small bowl, then use a cloth or sponge to apply the mixture to your stainless steel appliance.
- Wipe off any extra with a dry cloth or sponge.
- Repeat as needed until your appliance is clean.
Baby Oils or Mineral Oils
With the right oil, you can accomplish the job in minutes. The key is to choose an oil that will not leave stains or cause damage to your appliance. The finest way to clean stainless steel appliances with mineral or baby oils is by using a soft cloth and applying a small amount of liquid. You should then rub gently on the surface until you see it getting shiny again. Use mineral or baby oils sparingly to cover only a little surface area at once, thus wasting them unnecessarily.
Cleaning your stainless steel appliances is important. Not only does it keep your kitchen looking clean and bright, but it also helps maintain its look for a long time. It’s best not to leave them dirty or they may start to get dull over time due to all the grime that builds up on them.
