All Natural Stainless Steel Cleaner

Tuesday, August 04, 2015

Now, I know I've shared a few of my favorite all natural cleaners before here on the blog, but this one is different because it really requires no mixing because it only has one ingredient… and you probably already have a bottle of it somewhere in your kitchen.

With this secret weapon though, your stainless appliances can magically do this:

I promise you, I did not doctor that image - that is the same dishwasher. That 'after' image was taken 3 minutes after the before. (Now that was a confusing sentence.)

Ready to see the cleaner?

Yes, that's olive oil and a paper towel.
Just take a dab of olive oil on a paper towel and rub it on your appliances. See what I mean?

Can you see where I stopped rubbing to take a picture? Pretty amazing, huh? The best part is that it will keep your appliances from acquiring finger prints and smears too! The olive oil acts as a barrier without being greasy.

Here's a shot of my fridge - half the door was treated with olive oil the other half wasn't. I think you can see the difference:

Um.. I'll take the one on the right please.

I learned this trick from an appliance delivery man, who insisted it worked. And he was right. He said you can also use lemon juice, but I'm not too sure I wanted to use anything too acidic on my stainless steel appliances. I'll stick to the olive oil.
Well… what are you waiting for - give it a try and let me know how well it works for you!
