How To Clean Stainless Steel Appliances

With its natural beauty, shine and durability, it's no wonder why stainless steel is the most popular surface for household appliances. Although it is extremely resistant to corrosion, it is not completely impervious to it. Smudges, soil and fingerprints can take away from the beauty of your stainless steel, but they are easily resolved with proper maintenance and care.

How to Achieve a Brilliant Shine

For a truly pristine, lasting shine on your stainless steel you will need to clean and polish. As you can see in the image below, the Weiman Stainless Steel Wipe removes the oil, fingerprints, dirt and smudges quite effectively.


Buffing & Polishing

The final step in achieving a brilliant shine is buffing and polishing. Notice how the left half of the stainless steel is left completely streak-free. For premium cleaning and buffing use a Weiman Microfiber cloth along with a Weiman stainless steel wipe or aerosol.

General Tips

  • Use a high-quality, non-abrasive cleaner that is specially formulated for stainless steel, like Weiman Stainless Steel Cleaner & Polish or Weiman Stainless Steel Wipes

  • After applying the cleaner & polish, wipe in the direction of the natural metal grain to clean microscopic grooves where dust and dirt get trapped

  • Avoid abrasive cleaners, powders, scouring pads and brushes that may scratch and damage stainless steel

  • Avoid using glass cleaners, all purpose cleaners and harsh chemicals like chlorine or bleach because they may leave streaks and damage or discolor the outer protective layer of the surface

  • Use a paper towel or soft microfiber cloth to clean stainless steel

  • Don't leave ordinary steel in contact with stainless steel under damp conditions because an adverse reaction between the metals may cause discoloration

  • After cleaning, buff with a soft, clean, dry cloth to remove any residue that may be left on the surface

  • Make sure to completely dry the surface after cleaning to prevent spotting and streaking

  • Use Weiman Stainless Steel products regularly for a brilliant, sparkling luster and streak-free shine

For Heavy Soil

  • For heavier soil or hardened residue, soak the area with hot water for a few minutes to loosen the soil, then clean with Weiman Stainless Steel Cleaner & Polish

  • After cleaning, always buff with a paper towel or soft cloth to shine
