The Do’s & Don’ts for Cleaning Stainless Steel

Stainless steel adds an image of elegance and sophistication to any kitchen, and the beauty of that is how easy it is to keep clean. Here is what to do and what not to do when cleaning your stainless steel appliances so that they will keep their luster and shine for years to come.

What to do:

  1. Always start by cleaning with warm water and a cloth, or a microfiber cloth first.
  2. Spray with glass cleaner to clean off fingerprints.
  3. Use dish washing liquid and warm water to clean tougher stains and dirt.
  4. Use a stainless steel cleaner to remove stains if needed, but always read the directions and test a small spot on the appliance first.
  5. Wipe in the direction of the grain to avoid leaving streaks.
  6. Always towel dry after cleaning to prevent water spotting.

What not to do:

  1. Never use steel wool or steel brushes. They will scratch the surface of your stainless steel and make it more susceptible to rusting and staining.
  2. Abrasive cleaners will scratch the surface and should always be avoided.
  3. Bleach will stain and damage stainless steel, do not use cleaning sprays or solutions that contain bleach.
  4. Dirty water and cleaning solutions can leave a residue that can stain and damage the surface, so don’t forget to rinse and dry.

The keys to helping your stainless steel appliances avoid stains and corrosion is proper care and maintenance. With just a little effort, your appliances will stay looking shiny and new.
