5 Ways To Clean Stainless Steel Appliances Without Streaks

1. Use Lemon Oil Polish

Lemon oil polish is an effective product that helps remove water stains and scratches. Your appliances need to be thoroughly cleaned every so often, and lemon oil works wonders.

We don’t recommend applying the polish directly to stainless steel. That will take you more time to clean and polish. For the best results, take some polish in your microfiber cloth and spread it evenly on your appliances.

2. Use Dish Soap & Mineral Oil

Stainless steel appliances need to be cleaned thoroughly and carefully with non-abrasive rags or cloth. Harsh abrasives can easily dull the finish. One of the best ways to clean them is with good old dish soap.

Dish soap is made for cleaning dishes and appliances, so you probably have it lying around your house already. It’s a cheap investment and it will keep your stainless steel appliances streak-free.

Mineral oil or baby oil is also an effective alternative used for cleaning kitchen appliances. Just apply some to a washcloth and wipe the appliance. All the streaks will disappear.

3. Use Commercial Stainless Steel Cleaner

Commercial stainless steel cleaners are undoubtedly the most effective way of cleaning that gives a long-lasting shine to your stainless steel devices. It can be a little more pricey than dish soap or vinegar, but the investment is often worth it. It will help you save time and have clean appliances.

Stainless steel cleaners are designed to buff out scratch marks, remove stains and make your appliances look shiny and new.

While you’re looking for a stainless steel cleaner, consider buying a kitchen cabinet cleaner and polish as well.

4. Use Wet Cloth & White Vinegar

White vinegar isn’t the most luxurious cleaner on this list, but you’d be surprised at how effective it is. The stains and scratches will be gone in no time.

Use a soft microfiber cloth to remove the streaks most efficiently.

The vinegar helps to get rid of grime and stains properly that makes it easier for you to clean your kitchen. A dash of olive oil mixed with white vinegar can be used to clean kitchen surfaces too.

5. Use Glass Cleaner

Stainless steel devices are quick to catch fingerprints that give them a disappointing look. But a glass cleaner can solve that problem. Yes, you can use glass cleaner on stainless steel.
