How to Clean Stainless Steel Appliances

Author: John Fay   Date Posted:6 November 2013 


I often see stainless steel appliances and equipment such as lift doors, that, with a little bit of effort would come up looking like new.

The biggest mistake people make is cleaning them with the wrong product. What happens is they are often seen as dirty so people use all sorts of things like cream cleansers, acids, bleach, spray and wipe and degreasers on them. Which leaves them looking dry, dull and streaky.

If you have stainless that has mild rust and tarnish on it, what you can do is clean the rust spots off with a mild acid based bathroom cleaner such as Sweetpea Bathroom Cleaner, a white scourer (so it doesn't scratch) and a bit of elbow grease. Once this is done, wipe it with fresh water then apply our Metal Sheen or any other oil based product. You can even use cooking oil or WD40 like products if you have nothing else.

If you stainless Steel looks streaky, it is usually from using a spray and wipe or cream cleanser on it. First give it a wipe down with a damp cloth with only freshwater on it. Then just give it a wipe over with Metal Sheen or any other oil based product for cleaning stainless steel.

The Metal Sheen and oil based Stainless Steel cleaners all give the stainless a coating of oil, which leaves it looking lustrous, it prevents finger prints and marks and helps prevent rust and tarnish forming on the surface.
