Hey ladies!!! Those of you that know me know that me & my husband just bought a house and we just moved in this weekend (YAY!!) We did it all by ourselves…which was HARD, but it’s done & I’m SO happy.
I’m getting things together & unpacking things, and our stainless steel appliances are beginning to get fingerprints all over them & the black & brown granite is starting to become dirty. I’m scared to use any kind of cleaner because I don’t want to ruin anything, so I was seeking for advice from you ladies to let me know what you use so I can know from now on!!!
Thank you so much!!!

You can use anything on stainless steel however I prefer just water!
I wipe down the appliances with a wet cloth and then wipe clean with a clean dry tea towel. And ta da clean appliances.
Hopefully somebody else can speak to the granite!

The stuff it came with! Ours came with stainless steel cleaner.
My parents use a granite cleaner and a very soft towel on their granite.

We have a granite cleaner that we bought at Home Depot. Works just like 409.

I love Method’s granite cleaner. I have Weiman’s stainless steel cleaner, which works well, but I don’t have the same love for it as I do Method!

You can use baby oil, or any flavourless oil, to polish stainless steel. Otherwise there should be proprietary cleaners available at bigger stores.

We use a “granite counter top cleaner” you can buy at the grocery store/Target/etc. Can’t remember the brand, but it has a picture of a granite counter top on the bottle. Its a spray bottle, we just spray it on, and wipe down the countertops with either a rag or paper towels.
We also have this spray “stainless steel cleaner”, and it works really well but STINKS!!! We also bought that at Target.

You can buy stainless steel cleaner and any big box store. Having sold appliances before, I can tell you that Pledge in the ORANGE can works the best. Just spray it onto a soft dry cloth and wipe away. For some reason it’s only the orange can that works the best.

We use stainless steel cleaner wipes. They work great and are so convenient! I think we bought them at target or something similar.

I have a special mitt thing for the stainless steel. Pledge also makes a spray that works super great.

Iused to work in a restaurant kitchen that had all stainless steel surfaces, and the owner taught us to keep them immaculate. The way we did it was to use a regular paper towel and windex. Spray the windex on the stainless steel surface, then wipe straight down in perfect vertical columns, following the direction of the “grain” of the stainless steel surface. They were always spotless.

Don’t know what to use on granite since we don’t have it—but we just bought some spray on stainless steel cleaner at Walmart and it works great! Just use a spare sock (clean of course! haha), spray it on (onto the surface or to the sock depending on the product) and wipe it down. Then take another clean sock and buff it 🙂

We use wipes on our granite countertops and our stainless steel appliances. I love them! We got ours at Ace Hardware. Here’s the link for the granite ones. The stainless steel wipes should be toward the bottom left under related items. 🙂

I recently found out about Barkeeper’s Friend. Awesome on stainless steel and the glass cooktops. You can find it almost anywhere, Target, BBB, walmart, grocery store, etc. I absolutely love it now that I know about it.

I don’t know about granite. But for stainless steel, we have some KitchenAid stuff that came with our appliances. It works pretty well, but we haven’t learned where to get more.
Bar Keeper’s friend is pretty good too. I think it can be used on Stainless Steel? And it is mad cheap.
