Remove Stains & Restore Shine To Your Stainless Steel Appliances

Buying one tried and true cleaning product and using it for multiple purposes almost always offers a budget-easing bonus. But with a product like Murphy Oil Soap, touted as a wood cleaner right on the label, is that possible? Indeed, it is. This product has been around for more than a century, and it safely cleans sealed wood surfaces like flooring and cabinetry, but it can also be used to clean stainless steel kitchen appliances.

One of the great aspects of using Murphy Oil Soap on stainless steel is that it's often more affordable in comparison to products marketed specifically for cleaning stainless steel. The fact that it's formulated with natural elements, including water and coconut, as well as other plant-derived cleaning agents and just two percent synthetic ingredients, also makes it attractive for use in the kitchen where food is prepped and stored. It's also easy to use which makes it an even more appealing option for this purpose.

Cleaning stainless steel appliances with Murphy Oil Soap

Because Murphy Oil Soap is concentrated, it must be diluted in water before use. For normal cleaning, mixing ¼ cup of soap with 1 gallon of water is suggested. For heavier cleaning, you can add ½ cup to 1 gallon of water. Simply dip a rag in the solution and wipe down the surface of your refrigerator, microwave, stovetop, or other stainless steel wares. There's no need to rinse. Just dry your appliance with a microfiber cloth, and it should shine like new. Repeat as often as necessary.

While Murphy Oil Soap works quite well for routine cleaning, if you notice dark stains forming on your appliances occasionally, you may have to splurge on a conventional cleaner made specifically for stainless steel to get rid of those. These cleaners are available in both wipe and spray forms, and both are used in the same way. Just wipe them on and follow up with a swipe of a clean microfiber cloth to remove excess cleaner and polish at the same time. Using Murphy Oil Soap regularly, and a specialty cleaner occasionally as needed, should keep all your stainless steel appliances shiny, clean, and smudge-free.
