How to clean stainless steel shelving? It's a sure sign of dust or filth when you notice that the stainless steel shelving you have become discoloured. But don't worry, no matter how grimy the shelves are, cleaning them is easier than you think.
Stainless steel shelves can be used in a variety of places. In the kitchen, garage, bathroom, or even office. But when it comes to cleaning them, most people just wipe with a damp rag or spray and wash with soapy water. However, there are many different ways to clean them beyond this.
Clean Stainless Steel Shelves regularly with warm water and mild soap. If your shelves get dirty with grease or grime, use a non-abrasive cleaner such as ammonia or vinegar instead of abrasives like Comet or Ajax because they could scratch the surface of the metal. You can also use baking soda with warm water or hydrogen peroxide if your shelves have rust spots; just make sure not to let either solution sit on the surface too long before wiping it off because they can damage the finish over time.
Steps for Cleaning Stainless Steel Shelves
Cleaning stainless steel shelves is a simple process that requires only a few items.
Step 1: Clean the shelves with water, vinegar and baking soda. Mix together equal parts of water and vinegar in a spray bottle. Mix together one part baking soda with two parts water in another spray bottle. Spray one side of the shelf with the vinegar/water mixture, then wipe it dry with a clean cloth or paper towel. Spray the other side of the shelf with baking soda/water mixture, then wipe it dry with a clean cloth or paper towel. This will get rid of tarnish and bring out the shine in your stainless steel shelving unit!
Step 2: Clean off any remaining grime using soap and water. If there are still spots on your stainless steel shelving unit, you can use an all-purpose cleaner or bleach to remove them (be careful not to mix together bleach and ammonia!). Use a soft cloth or sponge for this step so that you don't scratch up your unit's finish. You may want to wear rubber gloves when cleaning off stubborn stains from your shelves as well.
Step 3: This is one of the most popular methods for cleaning stainless steel shelves because it is inexpensive and easy to implement. The first step in this method is to mix equal parts of vinegar and water in a bowl until they form a solution with a pH of 5-6. Then soak a cloth in this solution and wipe off any dirt or grime on your shelf using circular motions. After wiping off all the dirt, rinse off the vinegar solution using clean water in order to prevent any corrosion or rusting on the surface of your shelf.
Step 4: For stubborn stains or spots, use a mixture of two tablespoons of baking soda, two tablespoons of white vinegar and one cup of water to create an abrasive paste that will remove stubborn stains from glass, ceramic and other hard surfaces without damaging them as harsh cleansers can do! The acids in vinegar and baking soda helps break down grime while also cleaning away oils, soap scum and other dirt that has built up on your stainless steel shelves.
Step 5: Use a microfiber cloth or a damp cloth to wipe down your stainless steel shelving unit and wash off any dust or grime that has accumulated during storage or shipping. You can also use an all-purpose cleaner like Simple Green if you want to get rid of tough stains or spills on your shelves.
