Your Complete Guide to Cleaning Stainless Steel Appliances

Your kitchen is made up of different materials that require a number of cleaning solutions, sprays, and tools. One of the most popular materials you'll find is stainless steel, found in ovens, microwaves, and sinks, just to name a few. As sleek and shiny as it is, it stains and gets dirty a lot quicker than you'd like.

Fortunately, keeping it clean of grease and dirt is not as difficult as you might think. With the right tools and supplies, you're ready to clean and polish.

Whether you're cleaning in the spring or you just can't remember the last time your microwave got a good scrub, we've got your expert guide on cleaning stainless steel appliances.

What You Need to Clean Stainless Steel

Before you begin, take inventory and make sure you have all the necessary tools and supplies on hand. This job requires more cleaning power than a damp paper towel can provide.

Here we share exactly what you need in your cleaning kit to renew your stainless steel.


  • Degreaser
  • Multipurpose cleaner
  • Microfiber cloth
  • Metal sponge
  • Regular sponge
  • Steam

All-purpose cleaners are great for most surfaces, including stainless steel, to remove dirt and grime. But you will have to go a step further if the stainless steel is a featured material.

If your kitchen has stainless steel, then you should invest in a good degreaser. Use with a metal sponge or normal sponge, apply on the dirty surface, put a little water, and wait five minutes.

The metal sponge that you may need to use with a degreaser is also great for a good deep clean. Remove any sticky substance from the brakes that won't come off with a regular sponge.

Quick tip
If you only need a light cleaning, Navas explains that a microfiber cloth is perfect for cleaning dust and light stains.

An extremely useful component for cleaning stainless steel that many may not consider is steam.

Steam is the MVP for cleaning stainless steel; the problem is that you need a vaporizer. If you have one, you should use it, and if you have a lot of stainless steel, you should invest in one. This method works best in combination with other materials like soap or degreasers, but it will leave your surfaces sterile.

How to Clean Stainless Steel Appliances

To Clean With White Vinegar and Olive Oil:

    1. First, pour distilled white vinegar into a spray bottle to apply directly and use a microfiber cloth to clean the surface.
    2. Then pour a small amount of oil on another microfiber cloth and wipe it in the appliance. This will make the stainless steel shine without getting sticky.

    Rothbard also recommends cleaning with the texture of your appliance to ensure a polished finish. He also offers the option of using laundry detergent and baby oil if you don't have a special cleaner or olive oil and white vinegar.

    To Clean With Dish Soap and Baby Oil:

      1. Begin by moistening a microfiber cloth with soap and water.
      2. Then clean your appliances with the solution.
      3. Then add a little baby oil to another microfiber cloth and buff your appliances to make the shine reappear.

      Tips for Maintaining Stainless Steel

      Here we offer an extensive list of ideas to keep your stainless steel clean and in top shape.

      Dos for Stainless Steel

      We recommend the moderate use of cleaning products and apply all cleaning products to a cloth, not directly to the appliance. Be careful not to jump straight into scrubbing with a new formula.

      Test an inconspicuous area first when trying a new cleaner to make sure it doesn't leave stains.

      Quick tip
      You should clean up water spills, or any spills, as soon as possible. Otherwise, unsightly blemishes and marks may appear.

      Don'ts for Stainless Steel

      Do not place floor cleaners too close to the bottom of stainless steel appliances when washing floors. Floor cleaner or wax can cause a nasty build-up.

      Even if you want to clean all the blemishes and blemishes with a cleanser, it should be done in moderation and not with cleaners or abrasive tools as they can scratch or tarnish.

      There's an important no: baking soda. We love baking soda for various purposes, but cleaning stainless steel with it will only cause pain.
