Small Cleaning Series: Stainless Steel Appliances!!
Updated: Feb 6, 2019
Finger prints on the appliances drive me nuts! Anyone else?! I have searched for different methods of cleaning my appliances and making them shine like the day they arrived from Sears - and guess what? I found it! This cleaning solution is not only effective but ALL natural - hoorraahhh! You will need to follow the measurements exactly or you may get a film on your appliances after cleaning. If you DO get a film, just put some olive oil on dry cloth and rub on - olive oil is what makes them SHINE! Ready for it? Here ya go:
WHAT YOU NEED:
-a container to hold the cleaning solution
-two clean, dry cloths (I just use old washcloths)
-some sort of barrier on the floor under the appliances (the application process is the tiniest bit messy). I use a towel.
-1/2 cup pure baking soda
-1/4 cup white vinegar
-1 tablespoon olive oil
-a couple drops lemon essential oil (optional)
Combine to form a paste | Dip cloth into paste and rub onto appliances going back and forth in the same direction as the grain | Let it sit for 5-10 minutes | Wipe off with the other clean, dry cloth -- TADA!!!!!!
Again, if you notice a film a few minutes after cleaning, go back with more olive oil on a cloth and buff the appliance (still going with the grain).
Let me know how this works for y'all! I can't wait to hear your results.
