How do I clean my stainless steel surfaces?

To clean and care for your stainless steel surfaces, follow these suggestions:

• Wash surfaces with warm, soapy water using liquid detergent or an all-purpose cleaner 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.

• To restore its luster, apply a layer of stainless steel polish; follow the recommendations and directions on the polish label. Wipe excess polish and use special care to avoid contact with any plastic parts, trim pieces or rubber door gaskets. If 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.

• Use a clean, dry towel to polish the surface in the direction of the grain until it shines.

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 wash cloths or certain paper towels.
