    I love using vinegar to clean my stainless appliances! Side note: after wiping down with vinegar, use a little bit of OLIVE OIL on a micro fiber towel and it will buff any leftover finger prints right off! It leaves then beautifully shiny and helps keep fingerprints from sticking later, so maybe you won’t have to wipe it down as often! Good luck!

    Just FYI: baking soda and vinegar react together to produce what basically amounts to salt – effectively canceling each other out. The only time baking soda and vinegar are effectively combined is when the “foam” is the desired result (like, for example, to clear a stopped drain).

    Just a little tidbit for ya!

    Pledge furniture Polish is the best thing for cleaning stainless. I have tried many homemade and commercial stainless cleaners that do not work.
    Just spray pledge on, wipe off with a soft cloth. No scrubbing involved.
    Smells good too.

      I am going to try this. It seems I have spent a fortune on stainless products, and they all leave streaks!

    the vinegar doesn’t work very well on stainless, still leaves streaks even if you really rub good

    I find methylated spirits work great on stainless steel also, I used to use it on the big dishwasher at the pub I worked at, it buffs up really shiny and streak free :-) and you dont need stuff all arm muscles as it evaporates quickly so you dont need a lot of elbow grease to shine it up!

    I use lemon oil polish on my stainless steel..a small amount on a clean soft cloth and it will your appliances shine. If you have a something stuck on your appliance, wash it off then apply the lemon oil. You will be pleased!
