Natural cleaners for SS range?

Posted by PAINTEDPEGGIES (My Page) on

Hi all..I was wondering what, if any natural cleaners are okay for a stainless range.
I use only vinegar/water now in my kitchen but I have an older enamel range that I am replacing. Thanks for any input!

Is water natural enough for you? I find a wet microfibre cloth is all I need to clean up streaks and fingie prints. But for gunk burned onto the cooking surfaces, you'll need something stronger. Generally, I use a soapy plastic scrubby, but for more stubborn stains, I use Bar Keeper's Friend. A more "natural" abrasive would be baking soda, but I don't find it works anywhere near as well as BKF.

I do have BKF, for my skillets..almost forgot! Is vinegar a no-no though?

Do a quick google and YouTube search for Olive Oil and Stainless Steel. I've used it on my stainless appliances and it works great to polish them up and get rid of any smudges.

I use the Weimans cleaner/polish with a microfiber cloth.
Takes away all finger prints, makes the SS look brand new.
