I am trying to clean my stainless steel refrigerator. There are numerous
fingerprints and other water stains on it that are lighter than the rest of
the surface. I used a stainless steel spray cleaner on it, but the
fingerprints are not coming off. I read on the internet to try olive oil or
vinegar, but neither removed the fingerprints. Lastly, I tried glass
cleaner as suggested on the internet. I tried it on a small spot, and the
fingerprints did get removed, but the area I cleaned is now the same color
as the fingerprints, and there is brown residue on the cloth I used. So I
think there are two possible reasons for this:
1) The rest of the surface actually has brown gunk all over it, and the
areas that people touched are actually showing the true color of the surface
because their hands wiped off the gunk. If this is true I should clean the
entire surface with glass cleaner, then polish with stainless steel spray,
2) The brown gunk is actually the finish (?) of the surface and I am ruining
it by using the glass cleaner.
I know nothing. Please someone help!
