7 cleaning products you should never use on stainless steel
From sinks and stoves to refrigerators and dishwashers, stainless steel is now a mainstay in many of our kitchens. While it looks sharp and modern when clean, it shows off stains, dust, and smudges of all kinds much more readily than many other surfaces around your home. This is a great reminder to tidy up those high-touch surfaces often but is admittedly a hassle sometimes in terms of maintenance.
Luckily, it’s a quick task to swipe stainless steel and make it shine in seconds, especially if you are using a great stainless steel cleaner like Sheila Shine. However, you can potentially shine away your steel’s finish if you use the wrong products, so it’s vital to know the difference. Read on to learn more about what NOT to use on your stainless steel.
Before you apply anything to your stainless steel appliances and other fixtures, it’s helpful to get a refresher on your exact model through the product manual or website. Chances are that the manufacturer will mention what cleaning products are ideal as well as which may damage the finish.
Generally, however, you should avoid these tools and cleaners on stainless steel, as they may scratch the surface, stain, or dull the finish:
- Harsh abrasives – anything abrasive will scratch the surface of your stainless steel
- Scouring powders – Powders are abrasive as well and can cause scratches that will dull the steel
- Steel wool – another abrasive that will surely damage stainless steel surfaces
- Bleach and other chlorine products – these products will make stainless steel dull and can cause the color to fade
- Glass cleaners that contain ammonia, such as Windex – Ammonia is a deterrent for stainless steel; it can cause the steel to corrode very quickly
- Tap water, especially if yours tends to be hard water – use clean distilled or filtered water instead
- Oven cleaners – believe it or not, people use oven cleaners thinking the outside material of their oven is the same as the inside. This will only damage the steel.
