    Sticky fingerprints!

    Went to Currys today for a silver fridge/freezer, they all seem to be stainless steel now. I hate dirty/sticky fingerprints etc have any of you found them to be a problem for this? lol sorry if I seem o.c.d'ish just don't want to spend a lot on something that will annoy me every time it's used!

    I had a stainless steel microwave, and hated it, was constantly cleaning it, and also it went rusty. Refuse to buy anything stainless steel for the kitchen now, ( we also live in a hard water area, so a stainless steel sink we once had was horrible too as had limescale and water marks to clean off all the time) .
    However my friend has a silver coloured fridge freezer which isn't stainless steel , which doesn't show marks all the time.

    All depends how much it will bother you, some people can cope with odd marks.

    Our brushed stainless Siemens one is fine - it doesn't get prints.

    I keep telling Jerry to wash his hands before he comes to bed for the exact same reason.
    kidding...

    I have stainless steel all over the kitchen and I find those baby wipes remove most marks quite easily

    You can get stainless steel cleaners from the supermarket. Wipes and sprays. Best thing is wash over the steel and dry. Then a drop of baby oil on a soft cloth. Keep a Micro fiber cloth for the job and buff over. Looks fantastic. Old kitchen fitters trick.

    baby oil!!



    ​Yep. Used in the kitchen centre showrooms. Works a treat. You don't get the streaks and the surface is not oily as you would think. Works like a wax on the car I guess.. Anyway try a small patch for interest. Trust me.. Lol

    Steamer will CleaN it and leave no residue.
