How To Clean Your Stainless Steel

Stainless Steel Cleaning with e-cloth

Stainless steel is notoriously difficult to keep clean and fingerprint-free. But you don’t need specialist cleaners to clean it – just use e-cloth and water.

As e-cloths use just water there is nothing that can damage the surface, which is one of the reasons why e-cloth is recommended by most of the leading stainless steel appliance manufacturers, including:

Polished Stainless Steel and Chrome

How to clean:

It can be a good idea to fold the Glass & Polishing Cloth and use it as a pad. This ensures good contact with the surface and gives you a number of dry areas of the cloth to use. If the cloth is too wet, moisture residue does not evaporate quickly and the surface may not be left streak-free.

Brushed Stainless Steel

How to Clean:

  • Use a damp Stainless Steel Cloth for an initial clean - using the toughened stripe side to get into the grain of the brushed stainless steel.
  • Finish with a dry Glass & Polishing Cloth, for a perfect streak-free finish.

Oil-based Coatings

If streaks remain, it can be because of a coating put on by the manufacturer to protect the product during transit – or following the previous use of a specialist cleaner, many of which contain oils that fill the crevices of brushed stainless steel. To remove the oil from the surface or appliance, repeatedly use the cloth with hot water. The cloth can become saturated with oil and may need a hot wash.
