The Do’s and Don’ts of Cleaning Stainless Steel Kitchen Appliances

Learn how to clean your stainless steel appliances!

Homeowners love stainless steel appliances; and for good reason! Not only does stainless steel look great, but it can blend with almost any aesthetic. Unfortunately for many homeowners, stainless steel kitchen appliances require regular maintenance and care. Discover how you can care for your kitchen appliances with the following tips.

Don’t Clean Before Reading

Before you spray cleaning solution on your stainless steel refrigerator, read the manufacturer’s instructions first. Your appliances may be made of the same material, but certain brands recommend different cleaning substances than others. If you can’t find the original instructions, you can probably locate them on the manufacturer’s website.

Avoid Abrasive Cleaners

Stainless steel appliances may be made of metal, but they are easily susceptible to scratching. Avoid using abrasive cleaners and products such as steel wool and bleach. There are plenty of safe options to consider that won’t damage your costly investment. Safe options include micro-fiber cloth or paper towel. We encourage you to use micro-fiber cloth as it is the more ecologically friendly option of the two! 

Consider Eco-Friendly Cleaning Products

Environmentally friendly cleaning products aren’t just good for the planet. They are also a more mild cleaning solution, and they’re often kinder to the surface of your stainless steel appliances. Combine one part distilled white vinegar with equal parts olive oil and empty the solution into a spray bottle. Use a microfiber cloth to work the solution into the appliance and wipe clean when you are finished.
