But do not fear. You have options for keeping everything clean. All of the major home cleaning supply makers have developed products to help  stainless steel clean. But you have some great DIY options.

Baking soda mixed with liquid dish soap can make a good paste to gently rub on stains. Be sure to rinse the stainless steel surface thoroughly, and towel dry. If the stains still remain you can try vinegar. Remember to thoroughly rinse and towel dry.  If that still does not work, it is time to get some Pledge.

Until Next Time,
