Cleaning the outside of a stainless steel dishwasher

SueinPhillyAugust 31, 2012

I have a new GE stainless steel dishwasher (cheapest model - it's in a rental).

I cannot get the front of the dishwasher to look good. It is almost as if the film that covers it while it is installed has left gunk all over. I have tried oil, goo gone, peanut butter and nothing seems to work. The goo gone actually seemed to make it worse,

Does anyone have a suggestion?

I'd start with good old fashioned soap and water - the same soap you use to wash your dishes. Put a couple of old towels on the floor and use a saturated rag to wash the surface. It would be really good to have a window squeegee to wipe of the surface. Buff out any remaining streaks with a paper towel.

Let's see where that gets you.

I use plain old Windex to clean my stainless steel. I spray it on fairly heavily and then wipe it dry, with the grain, using an old towel. They I lightly spray another towel with Lemon Pledge and run that with the grain to shine it. I've tried just about every stainless cleaner on the market and this method works better and is far cheaper.
