Stainless steel appliances, and accessories in a bathroom or kitchen always creates a sleek, clean and chic look. It is a classic aesthetic that will always be in style. Stainless Steel doesn’t nick, rust, or corrode but it does get dirty. One struggle we think all home owners face with their Stainless Steel appliances is keeping them smudge and finger print free. Since Cantu Bathrooms and Hardware sell our lovely customers an array of Stainless Steel merchandise, we decided to share some of our favorite cleaning products that we use to keep our Stainless Steel gleaming! After we review our favourites we are going to share a fantastic DIY stainless steel cleaner for all you DIY Devotees!
Weiman Stainless Steel Wipes
We love these easy to dispense and use wipes. They remove fingerprints, blemishes and spots with ease from any Stainless Steel surface! These make fridges, stoves and countertops shine without leaving any residue. If your cleaning job needs a little more TLC, like when dealing with heavy grease or food residue, we suggest opting for the Weiman Stainless Steel Spray.
Method Steel for Real Stainless Steel Polisher
This is a great natural product! It effectively wipes out stubborn dirt and grime and stands up pretty well to new fingerprints. There is very little residue after your first few wipes but it does take a couple extra strokes to rid the surface completely of it. We think this green product stands up to its competitors without using any harsh or harmful chemicals! We also love its apple orchard scent!
Caldrea Stainless Steel Spray
This top performing shine booster cleans like a champ! Not only is the packaging stylish, but the product packs a punch when it comes to cleaning dirt and grime! This formula will also leave your stainless steel surfaces shinning like the star they are!
DIY All in One Stainless Steel and Glass Cleaner!
- ½ cup rubbing alcohol
- ⅓ cup white/distilled vinegar
- water (Clean tap water is fine for short-term use. Use distilled or boiled and cooled water for long-term use.)
- 6 drops of any essential oil (we love lavender or orange) – optional
Add the alcohol and vinegar to a 16oz. glass spray bottle. Add water until the bottle is full (use a funnel, if needed). If you don’t care for a vinegar scent (although it goes away once the surface dries), add a few drops of your favorite cleaning essential oil. This cleaner may be stored at room temperature.
Spray the cleaner directly onto a microfiber cleaning cloth, then wipe down your appliance using a firm hand. Before using this cleaner on stainless steel always check your appliance manual since some appliances recommend using plain water for wiping the surface. This cleanser works great on windows and mirrors as well!
