Stainless steel appliances are a top choice for many kitchens because of the sleek, modern look they offer.

Plus, stainless steel comes in multiple finishes, and some appliances mix finish types so that you can maintain aesthetic consistency without too much uniformity. While the name says stainless, let's be honest, fingerprints and smudges happen, and cleaning these appliances can leave some homeowners stumped!
Whether you're tackling your spring cleaning or getting ready to take real estate photos of your Augusta home for sale, these tips will get your stainless steel appliances looking like new.

Few things can ruin the look of stainless steel worse than scratches. A brushed finish may hide smaller abrasions, but all finishes require gentle care.

Use dish soap to remove grease spatters after frying, then rinse with water to prevent residue buildup.
