Clean Stainless Steel Appliances With Dishwashing Liquid And Baby Oil

If you don’t have a special cleaner on hand for your stainless steel, you can still get a good result. Instructables user amalkhan suggests two things you may have already: baby oil and dishwashing liquid.

The key to this method first is to identify the grain of your stainless steel. A quick look at the surface of your fridge or stove will show you which direction you should clean to get the best results. He also suggests using a good lint-free cotton cloth, but paper towels will work in a pinch.

Then it’s simple — just use a dab of dishwashing liquid and a little water, and clean along the grain to get rid of oil marks, smudges or stubborn fingerprints. As long as you’re cleaning with the grain, you shouldn’t leave ugly streaks or water marks. Then, repeat the process with the baby oil to polish. Simple as that.
