Hi, I'm Rachel Yatuzis and I'm going to show you some metal polishing techniques. First off, you want to remove any dirt or grime or residue from the metal before you polish it. So grab your favorite all-purpose cleaner, nothing too abrasive and nothing gritty because it may scratch the metal. You know, spray it on the metal, on a cloth, whichever you choose. Wipe it clean to remove anything that's built up on the metal. Next, find a good metal polish, and a micro-fiber cloth works best for polishing the metal, because the micro-fiber really gets every portion of the surface. So this is one of my favorites. It's a green product. It's great for any kind of metal. And with stainless steel appliances these days, you know, people really need something like this around their house. Just spray it on your micro-fiber cloth, and then buff it. A lot of these metal polishes are sort of like window cleaners. When they dry there won't be any streaks. You don't want one that's going to leave streaks on your metal. And your metal will look brand new. I'm Rachel Yatuzis, and that is a metal polishing technique.
