Spray on a spray cleaner for a deep clean. You can find purpose-made stainless steel cleaners at most home improvement stores, groceries stores, and major online retailers. For most of these products, you simply spray it on your appliance, allow it to soak for 1-2 minutes, then wipe it away with a clean, nonabrasive cloth.
Specific directions for each cleaner will vary from product to product. Read the directions for use on the product packaging before you apply it to your stainless steel appliances.
Use stainless steel wipes for quick cleanings. Like spray cleaners, you can find wipes made specifically for stainless steel in most stores that sell cleaning products. These wipes usually let you wipe down the surface of your appliance in a single step, without having to rinse, dry, or polish.
Wipes may not be as effective as sprays or detergents for removing grease and oils from fingerprints. They are great for quick cleans in between deep cleans to keep your appliance looking fresh, but they often don’t substitute for a deep clean.
Invest in a scratch-removal kit for surface scratches. If you have small scratches on the surface of your steel, your best option is to get a scratch removal kit made especially for stainless steel. These kits will help you buff out small scratches, but they won’t take care of large or deep scratches.
Read the directions for the kit fully and completely before using it on your appliances. Directions may vary from kit to kit.
