How to Clean Traditional Stainless Steel
To clean and care for your stainless steel surfaces, follow these suggestions:
IMPORTANT: To avoid damage to the finish, do not use soap-filled scouring pads, abrasive or harsh cleaners, any cleaning product containing chlorine bleach, steel-wool pads, gritty washcloths or certain paper towels.
To Clean and Care:
- Spray affresh™ Stainless Steel cleaner on a clean microfiber cloth.
- Wipe the stainless steel in the direction of the grain.
To Restore Luster:
- Use the affresh™ Stainless steel wipes; follow the recommendations and directions on the label.
- Wipe off any excess and use special care to avoid contact with any plastic parts, trim pieces, or rubber door gaskets. If the polish does contact any of these plastic parts, clean them with a nonabrasive sponge and mild detergent in warm water.
- Thoroughly dry the area with a soft cloth.
Cleans even where you can't see
affresh® cleans deep inside your appliances reaching components such as the tub, racks, pump, valves, drain, and recirculation hoses.
Cleaners are available at many retailers or can be purchased here.
If affresh™ Stainless Steel cleaner is not available:
- Wash surfaces with warm, soapy water using liquid detergent and a nonabrasive sponge. Always rub evenly in the direction of the grain.
- Rinse with clean water and dry with a soft, lint-free cloth.
- Use a clean, dry towel to polish the surface in the direction of the grain until it shines.
- Water that is not completely dried off can cause discoloration - Water may contain iron that will initiate this discoloration
