Homemade Stainless Steel Cleaners

6 posts in this topic

I did a google search for homemade ss cleaners. I found this info. Has anyone tried these things to clean their ss grills?

 

Vinegar. To clean and polish stainless steel, simply

moisten a cloth with undiluted white or cider vinegar and

wipe clean. Can also be used to remove heat stains on

stainless steel cutlery.

 

Club Soda. Remove streaks or heat stains from

stainless steel by rubbing with club soda.

 

Stainless Steel:

1) Rub with a paste of baking soda and water.

Is there some reason why 51 people have read my post but not one person gives me an answer to any of my questions I have put here on this forum?

I don't have a SS grill but I know for a fact that vinegar does a great job of cleaning up grease. I've tried it on SS hoods. I've also been using it for quite some time now to wipe the oil splatters off my stove and backsplash. Baking soda works great as a cleaner because it has a bit of grit like a scouring pad but will not scratch surfaces. Vinegar and baking soda are excellent cleaning materials that are much less harmful (if at all) than the chemical cleaners sold in groceries. I use a vinegar solution for wiping off grease and as a glass/window cleaner (instead of Windex). Baking soda in combination with vinegar can also be used instead of Drano or LiquidPlumber to clean or maintain your drains. It won't "eat" your pipes like the other two.

Thanks for he info. I use vinegar for my windows as well rather than Windex. I guess I'll give it a try on the BBQ as well. I suppose it can't hurt!
