Care of brushed/satin finish stainless faucets?

I just noticed in the instructions of the Glacier Bay drinking water faucet that it says:

To preserve the finish of your faucet, apply non-abrasive wax. Any cleaners should be rinsed off immediately. Do not use abrasive cleaners on the faucet.

The instructions for the Moen Benton (box says spot resistant surface, not brushed, or satin) says:

To preserve the finish on the metallic parts of your Moen faucet, apply non-abraisive wax, such as car wax. Any cleaners should be rinsed off immediately. Mild abrasives are acceptable on Platinum and LifeShine finishes.

Do you use car wax on your faucet? How often?

RE: Care of brushed/satin finish stainless faucets?

We have a Kohler "vibrant stainless" (a/k/a brushed or satin finish) kitchen faucet. The directions for care indicated certain gentle cleaners (Clorox GreenWorks being one, which I already have,,, so I remember that one). There was nothing about waxing the faucet. Each brand is different, though, so what works for ours may not work for yours.
