The most useful thing for me is something that evaporates quickly (I use clorox wipes) and then to just rub off any streaks that happen with a soft, dry cloth

You can use pledge spray, just remember less is more (if you use less you will get less streaks) and be careful cause it can make floor slippery.  Method cleaning sprays also work really well and don’t streak.

Blue windex.  Buff with a coffee filter (it won’t leave any little white bits).  Keep wiping with a dry filter until totally dry — that’s how you keep it streak-free!

@Mrs. Chai:  Olive oil. I know it sounds nutty, but it’s good for the stainless. Put a little on a rag and rub away. It helps prevent finger prints from showing in between cleans too.

The only one I found that worked really well for me was Hope’s brand from Home Outfiitters. BB&B might have it as well. There are many different types of ‘stainless steel’ though, so hopefully you find something to work on yours!

I use Old English furniture polish. It helps keep the fingerprints off our stainless steel refrigerator. When we replace the rest of our appliances with stainless steel, I’ll use it on those too. I’ve been so happy with how it works.

Aaah, yes the never-ending battle to keep Stainless Steel Appliances looking good.  As someone who has worked in the Restaurant Industry I can tell you, SS is good for hygenic / “cleanliness” but not the easiest to keep shiney.  Seems to always be streaky IMO

My next set of SS Appliances will be the Smudge Proof / Fingerprintless versions that are now on the market !!

To be honest, another style of appliances that can look really awesome in a kitchen is to go all black, and get the pebbled finish on the fridge… little or no smudges with those either.
