If you have a stainless steel fridge or other stainless steel appliances, the most annoying thing is all the fingerprint marks!

Don’t despair, there is an easy way to clean the marks off and get it shiny again.

Stainless steel cleaner

What you’ll need:

  • water
  • white vinegar
  • olive oil


  1. Mix 50% white vinegar and 50% water in a spray bottle and spray on your appliance.
  2. Rub with a soft cloth in direction of the grain.
  3. Add a few drops of olive oil to a cloth and buff surface, again in the direction of the grain.

Your fridge or other appliance will be sparkling.

I love a cleaning method that doesn’t involve nasty chemicals and does the job just as well.

Try it out and let me know how you go. Please add your comments below.

  • Awesome…..this is just what I need for my stove and dishwasher.


  • A nice natural alternative, thank you.


  • We don’t have much stainless steel, or at least it doesn’t get dirty so it seems, but great tips!


  • It is so easy and cost’s zero as l have everything already!


  • Hibbys stainless bbq got burn marks when used by a friend, after babying this bbq for the last 5 years,it looked brand new (well, till our friend cooked on it anyway!) And he just cant seem to shift that last bit of stain, going to give this a try!


  • thanks for the great tip…


  • Yes this works great, i have been on a stainless cleaning binge, thank you.


  • Love this tip! The stove looks brand new!


  • The cleaner is not abrasive so it won’t scratch the surface.
    Ensure the oil is al removed when buffing the surface on the stove. If it gets too hot it will send up smoke and acitivate the smoke alarm. On the stove it could also catch fire.


  • Another fantastic use for water and vinegar. Looking forward to giving it a go.


  • This mixture sounds worth a try as Ive brought shelf brand products which they don’t make do the job! Plus I have a s/steel stove top with the guide numbers ect.. coming off -Does any one have any ideas of which the best way to prevent these from disappearing any further (some form of protections ideas would be good)! Tks


  • Ooh wow, how easy. I’m always on the lookout for a better stainless steel cleaner. This is fantastic. Thanks for sharing.


  • Love it ! Will try it on my oven.


  • I’ve never heard of this method. Definetly will be giving it a go.


  • The commercial cleaner I have in the cupboard is a one step application, and quite expensive. This natural alternative is fantastic. Instead of a spray bottle, I mixed it in an open dish that I could rinse my cloth in. The results are as good as the commercial cleaner and so much cheaper. Thanks Jessica.
