How to Clean the Stainless Steel Refrigerator?

Last Update date : 2016.04.05

Keeping stainless clean can be tough sometimes. Let us help you out with that.



Always read the cleaner manufacturer's instructions and cautions carefully, and test the product in an inconspicuous area before use. Even if a product is labeled, “for use on stainless steel,” verify that it is low in chlorides and does not contain any bleach.





·        Do not spray water or cleaner directly on the surface; instead apply a small amount of cleaner on the rag and then clean the surface.

·        Never use any type of window cleaner, soap, scouring powder, or any cleanser with solvents such as alcohol, benzene, ammonia, or paint thinner. Never use steel wool or bleach. If you do, you can damage the finish and rust will form.

·        If the unit is on a tile floor, do not use grout cleaners that contain muriatic acid. The fumes alone can damage the stainless finish.


Cleaning the Stainless Surface




1.       Make a paste of baking soda and warm water.

2.       Apply it to the stainless surface with a soft cloth.


·         Start by rubbing gently with the grain of the finish to spread the paste

·         Add more pressure as you distribute it over the area to be cleaned.


3.       Continuing along the grain, wipe away all remnants of the cleaning agent with a clean wet cloth, and then dry the surface thoroughly.


Note: If the baking soda/warm water paste does not do the job, you can make a new paste, substituting a product like Bar Keepers Friend™ for the baking soda.
