1: Clean Stainless Appliances with Soapy Water
Use a soft, nonabrasive cloth and a mixture of dish soap and warm water to wipe the surface of your appliance in the direction of the grain. With a second clean cloth, wipe again with warm water before thoroughly wiping the surface dry, always in the direction of the grain. Avoid using rough cleaning tools like steel wool pads, paper towels or abrasive towels. Do not use powders or any cleaning supplies that are acidic, vinegar or citrus-based, as it may stain or damage the coating of your appliances. Below, find detailed instructions on how to clean stainless steel appliances using either method.
