Stainless Steel appliances remove stains

Posted by carmelvalleyite (My Page) on

I applied my stainless steel cleaner directly on my newer SS refrig and, yikes, everywhere I squirted it, there were shiny drip marks and spots, big and very noticeable. I found this site and someone suggested Murphy's Oil. I had a bottle of Pledge Revitalizing Oil with natural orange oil. I applied a bit on a soft cloth on a small stain and it worked. I slowly rubbed it on the entire section of the refrigerator spot by spot in case of another disaster but much to my delight, all the stains were gone. Prayed all the while it would work since I have a buyer coming to view my house soon. Hope this helps someone too.

RE: Stainless Steel appliances remove stains

What I learned with staineless finishes is that you cannot spot clean. You have to do a whole panel at a time. I've found that virtually anything --- Windex being one example --- will work if you use a microfiber cloth and do the entire door, side panel, or whatever. When I tried Murphy's oil soap, the surface seemed a mite sticky afterwards. I've got some of the Pledge Revitalizing Oil, though and had not thought of trying that. Thanks for the tip.
