How to remove streaks from stainless steel appliances
I had some major streaks on my stainless steel kegorator that I couldn't remove. Soap and water had no effect at all. So I looked online and there were quite a few cleaning suggestions: vinegar, club soda, rubbing alcohol, a citrus oil based cleaner, a sheepskin chamois, and Soft Scrub.
I tried a few, but they sucked. Here's what worked for me, a night-and-day difference - in about 5 seconds: olive oil.
I put a small amount of olive oil on a paper towel and wiped away - the streaks were gone immediately and the whole thing shined like it was brand new. I then used it on my streaky and spotty dishwasher and oven and it worked on them as well.
I'm not afraid to say that olive oil is a miracle cleaner for stainless steal. And choosing extra virgin olive oil as your main source of dietary fat, combined with eating a healthy diet that is high in plant foods, may reduce your risk of cardiovascular disease and diabetes. Who knew?
