cleaning stainless steel appliances

Can anyone give me some tips on cleaning a stainless steel refrigerator? The manufacturer says to use soapy water and then dry in the direction of the grain, but this just doesn't work. I have seen all kinds of solutions online including vinegar and baking soda, but it says in the manual not to use these as they may damage the finish. No matter what I do, it looks streaky. Thanks for any help you can offer.

I have used this product as well and it does a very nice job. I have wipes not a spray and purchased it at Bed, Bath and Beyond.

Stainless Steel cleaner is the best. It makes your stainless look new.

I use a product called “Sheila Shine”. It is an oil that you wipe on, then wipe off. Takes a very small amount. The down size is it has a chemical smell...but if you remember to use just a bit, the smell dissipates quickly. I get it from Amazon.

You just gave me a blast from the past!...when I was in college I worked at a restaurant. One of our side work jobs was to “Sheila shine” the line (stainless steel counters) in the kitchen. I’d never heard that except there - I thought it was a restaurant thing

OP: for the record, the stuff really works!

I use those wipes as well. They are great! I even got them at TJ Maxx or Ross or one of those stores.

Does your fridge have the coating on it for no fingerprints? If it does you can’t use stainless cleaner. Our fridge does (even though we still can see fingerprints) and if you use anything on it, it will ruin the finish. Check first before. My stove doesn’t except for where the knobs are and I used stainless cleaner on it and now it looks 😬😬😬

I think the wipes work best. I also clean first then use the wipes. The wipes work for shining up but not that great for actual cleaning.
