- Every January I always have the energy and motivation to do some deep cleaning and organizing. And there are a lot of exciting cleaning and organizing things that I will be sharing here in my blog.Today I will be sharing how to naturally clean and polish your stainless steel refrigerator.Stainless steel appliances adds a nice contemporary look to a kitchen. They are sleek and clean and supposed to be stainless. But that is not necessarily true.Because my stainless appliances are covered with streaks, smudges and fingerprints, little ones. Especially when you take a closer look at it.If you have kids like me (okay let’s not blame the kids on this but The Mr. and I are also guilty with this too), then your stainless appliances will look like mine as well.Let me share to you how I cleaned my stainless steel appliances, starting with my refrigerator.Normally, I would just use a damp paper towel and wipe off the prints and streaks on the refrigerator.Yeah it looks clean. Yeah it looks fingerprint free. Yeah no streaks. But I wasn’t able to achieve the shiny-look of my refrigerator.So here’s what I used to achieve that look.1. Gather your supplies: Grab four things – 2 clean microfiber cloths, vinegar, baking soda & olive oil. It is practical to pour your vinegar on a large spray bottle to be able to cover larger space.2. Spray the vinegar: Liberally spray your refrigerator with vinegar. Wipe the vinegar in the direction of your refrigerators grain using one of the microfiber cloths. Once you have done that.3. Remove smudge with baking soda: Depending on how smudgy your refrigerator is, pour a little bit of baking soda unto the microfiber cloth then scrub it in the direction of the refrigerator’s grain. Wash the same cloth with dish soap and water, wipe the refrigerator surface clean.4. Polish the refrigerator: Pour a pea size of olive oil onto your other clean microfiber cloth (remember: do not use the microfiber cloth that you used to wipe off the vinegar). Polish the refrigerator in the direction of its grain.And you will now have a clean and shiny stainless steel refrigerator!For more cleaning and organizing posts, check my tabs on top of this page.
