Anyone with a kitchen full of stainless steel appliances knows that they require quite a bit of upkeep for that spot-free look. They're very susceptible to fingerprint smudges, scratches, and water stains, but seeing that pristine, mirror-like gleam once they've been cleaned up is so worth it!
To get started, dust off your stainless steel unit with a cleaning rag, then apply a little bit of your stainless steel cleaner of choice and wipe down with the grain to restore the piece to its original luster! Here are the best stainless steel cleaners to always have on standby.
