I have all S/S appliances in the house we just moved into. Hate them...I went to Home Depot and asked the lady in the applicance department what to use...It's called Zep s/s cleaner. Smells terrible, but works!

I know a lot of people that swear by Endust--the furniture polish--for keeping stainless appliances clean. My SIL uses the Method brand window cleaner and hers look good--she has a 5 year old and a 2 1/2 year old too.

I got this micro fiber mitt at Bed, Bath, and Beyond. You wet one side, rub in the direction of the grains in the steel, and then buff with the other side of the mitt. I think Simple Human makes it. Best $10 I have spent for cleaning products.

I use to use car wax on my stainless steel sink. I've never had stainless appliances, but I wonder if that would help?

Did you just sort of wax the sink the way you would a car?
Did it help prevent scratches?

I love SimpleHuman's stuff. Their designers are very creative.

There are stainless steel wipes that you can buy at most grocery stores or probably Walmart. They don't really smell bad and make that steel shine.

Hi, I had the same problem and was told by a manufacturer of stainless products to use WD40 (a small amount on a piece of cloth). It will get smudged obviously but it sure makes your stainless steel appliances look great without scrubbing with soap and having to deal with streaks. Knowing what I know now, next time I would buy what is called the "Brushed Stainless Steel" or "CleanSteel". It looks like stainless steel but never smudges or streaks.
