Yes, stainless steel cleaners can cause build ups and what you’re left with are cloudy black smears. So yes, you should clean your appliances organically to rid build up.
Today’s Blog is going to give you our green cleaning tip for cleaning stainless steel appliances.
If your appliance is smudge proof or smudge resistant, this means it is resistant to fingerprints and is much easier to clean. You’ll simply need to wipe it down with a damp microfiber cloth. Frigidaire and a few other big appliance companies offer this technology, as well as they provide some cleaning products to clean and maintain your appliances.
When cleaning your stainless steel, you’ll always want to wipe in the direction of the steel grain.
