How to Clean Stainless Steel With Olive Oil & Vinegar
When you bought your beautiful stainless steel appliances, the helpful salesperson probably didn’t mention that within minutes of installation they would look like they’d been licked by a hound dog and wiped off with a piece of buttered toast. Well you can have bright and shiny stainless steel in your kitchen – without the overpriced stainless steel cleaner you’ll find in stores.
First, pour a little olive oil on a rag. Wipe the stainless steel surface all over with the oil. You’ll be amazed at how it effortlessly lifts fingerprints and shines your appliances. Then dampen another rag with white vinegar and rub over it again. This method not only cleans and shines your stainless steel, but it will keep it smudge free for days – even with little ones in the house!
Use the olive oil and vinegar technique a couple of times a month, or on heavy cleaning days.
For everyday maintenance and cleanup use one part white vinegar to one part water in a spray bottle. Spray down your stainless steel surface and wipe off with a dry cloth. Zip zap zip! Your showroom kitchen will shine like never before.
