Hi, I'm Rachel Yatuzis and I'm going to show you how to clean brushed stainless steel appliances. First, like if you have a toaster and it's got crumbs on it or some sticky stuff, you want to use an all purpose cleaner just to wipe it off with. If you use a green cleaner, they're less abrasive and they're not going to you know, damage the metal, which stainless steel is pretty tolerant of anything, but just in case, you want to use something that's not really abrasive, and something that's not scratchy, you don't want to scratch it up. Wipe, wipe it down just to clean it a little bit and get all of the little parts of it, you know, all of the little crumbs and things like that off. And then, this has a little bit of residue on it. Then make sure that it's dry and you want to get a metal polish, this is a stainless steel polish, it's a green product and it's wonderful. You can buy these little microfiber cloths that go along with it, just wash them and reuse them, that way you're not wasting paper. This is my favorite metal polish. Spray a little bit on your, on your cloth and just buff it and it will be as shiny as new. I am Rachel Yatuzis and that is how you clean stainless steel appliances.
