Stainless steel is an excellent material for home kitchen appliances. The material looks great, is durable and increases the value of a home. However, stainless steel also shows off every blemish, fingerprint and food stain. In order to maintain a brilliant-looking kitchen, it is critical to properly clean it. Steel does scratch if you aren’t careful, so you need to know how to clean it to the best of your abilities. At A-Tech Appliance, we’re here to help. Here is how we recommend cleaning your steel fridge.
Use the Right Cleaning Material
Purchase a microfiber cloth. These will not scratch and are great for cleaning steel. Plus, you can clean them in the washing machine without constantly needing to toss out paper towels. Also, instead of purchasing expensive cleaning liquids, use a combination of vinegar and olive oil. First, spray the fridge with the vinegar (regular white distilled vinegar works perfectly fine). Now, clean the refrigerator following the grain of the steel. If you look closely, you’ll see if it runs left to right or up and down. Cleaning in the direction of the grain will allow for a deeper clean.
After cleaning and wiping down with the vinegar, dip your cloth into the olive oil (just a small dab) and wipe it over the refrigerator. This will help to clean any of the remaining blemishes on the fridge, and it will help bring out a lasting, brilliant shine on the appliance.
By taking advantage of these cleaning tips, you’ll always have a beautiful-looking appliance. Should it fail to run as normal, it is important for you to give our team at A-Tech a call. From the smallest issues to the largest problems, we’re here to help you maintain your fridge and all other appliances.
