First a little history.I love the look of stainless steel. And I believe so do most people. Although since owning it, I have often wondered where the “stainless” comes from. As far as I could tell, you could never quite get it all the way clean. There always seems to be that one finger print that just won’t go away. Or in my case, a slight sheen from where the sticker was. So I was a little bothered by this. In fact I was planning on putting forth a motion to have an official name change. Perhaps Stainable Steel. Or Slightly Smudgy Steel. Anything but Stainless Steel. Until today! This was achieved by only changing one thing in my cleaning routine. I used Pledge (thanks to a recommendation from a friend) to clean my Stainless. I find that it works much better then any Stainless Steel cleaner I have tried. I also like it because I don’t have to worry about overspray ruining my cabinets. Pledge is made for wood as well. So I just polish the cabinet up too. I prefer the Dust & Allergen Pledge, but Orange is nice as well. I also use a microfiber cloth. I had just finished cleaning my fridge and it looked pretty good. But there was still some smudges, that have been their since we bought the fridge last summer. The discoloration that is in the circle is left from the sticker. There was also a bunch of discoloration alongside the water dispenser. It is not in the picture because I had already used it to test my idea at this point. And since you don’t see it, it obviously worked!
Here is it.
