As we age, we get more and more joy out of upgrading our appliances. If you are anything like us, you got tired of never being able to buy larger appliances a long time ago. Once we were given the chance to purchase the appliances of our dreams, we never looked back. However, there is just one problem here. We were never given a proper tutorial on how to keep appliances clean!

While you may not have known about the cleansing properties of olive oil, we are here to provide you with all the information that you could ever need. When you’re trying to get rid of smudges, fingerprints, and other cumbersome marks that won’t go away, olive oil is always your best bet.

To get started, you’ll want to grab a microfiber cloth. Make sure that the cloth is wet first. A dash of dish soap can be applied next. To get rid of any food that has had a chance to accumulate, wipe down the appliance in question. Make sure that you are going with the grain, not against it.

Now you are going to need a different microfiber cloth to handle the next step. Once the appliance is dry, take a new cloth and apply the olive oil. As soon as it has been buffed into the stainless steel, you should be able to notice an immediate difference. Some may need to repeat this process once a week to maintain their appliances.

Stainless steel appliances have a way of showing fingerprints more than most. If you have stainless steel pots and pans, these can also be treated with olive oil. The lingering grease needs to be removed with vinegar first, though. From there, you can use the olive oil and microfiber cloths in the same manner that you would clean the appliances.

To protect your stainless steel silverware, rub the cutlery down with olive oil and a soft cloth.
