Ways To Keep Fingerprints Off Stainless Appliances
Stainless appliances became all the rage in kitchen design in the 1990s, dominating into the 21st century as well. Stainless appliances create a sleek, environment. However, the fingerprints that stainless steel inevitably accumulates can mar this aesthetic. There are some ways to keep stainless appliances free from fingerprints. Here are the ways, clean the stainless steel with a cloth dipped in soap and water. Alternatively, spray window cleaner on the surface and wipe it off with a cloth. Apply distilled white vinegar, lemon juice or soda water to a clean cloth. Rub the stainless steel with it to increase shine and remove any stubborn prints that survived the previous cleaning. Drip a little olive oil or scent-free baby oil onto a clean cloth, or scoop some furniture polish or car wax onto a cloth. Buff the stainless with the oil, polish or wax until you have applied a thin, even layer of it to the steel.
Continue buffing the stainless appliances until it has a uniform shine. The oil, polish or wax makes the surface more resistant to grease and fingerprints. Repeat this cleaning and buffing process as part of your normal weekly or biweekly housekeeping routine. This keeps the buffer layer intact and prevents fresh fingerprints from accumulating on the surfaces of your appliances.
