How to clean brushed stainless steel

Brushed stainless steel is a popular material for kitchen appliances. Toasters, refrigerators and sink basins are among many common items made from this material. Stainless steel is also sometimes used for mixing bowls and other dishes. As it is very durable, you won't have to worry if you drop this kind of bowl on your hard tile floor. One of the biggest benefits to stainless steel is that it is easy to clean. However, this does not mean that stainless steel, including brushed stainless steel, is immune to stains (despite the material's name) or other cleaning issues. In addition, there are cleaners and cleaning methods you should avoid when cleaning brushed stainless steel.

Fill a sink or bucket with warm water and a gentle, non-abrasive cleaner (dish soap is fine for everyday cleaning).

Pour cleaner directly on any caked on food, grease, dirt or other debris. Let the cleaner remain on the steel for a few minutes.

Wet a sponge or cloth in the warm water and cleaning solution.

Wipe the brushed stainless steel (make sure to wipe it in the direction of the grain).

Rinse it off with clean water. Dry with a towel or microfiber cloth, again rubbing in the direction of the grain.
