Step 1: Do a wipe down of the stainless steel (fridge, sink, oven, microwave…etc.) with a wet rag. Vinegar can be used to get rid of tough grime.

Step 2: Make sure the surface is clean as baby oil won’t really be doing the cleaning

Step 3: Put some baby oil on a dry, soft cloth. Wipe in the direction of the grain (to avoid more scratches on the stainless steel). Flip the cloth over and with as little pressure as possible, wipe the excess down.

Don’t let any kitchen appliance dull your sparkle!
