Default House cleaning question

Hi Guys...we just got a new stainless steel refrigerator, and it of course has accumulated finger prints on the door...any suggestions as to what the best thing is to clean it with?...I looked in the manual but it offered no suggestions, and Im afraid to turn the wife loose on it without some guidance.
Thanks,
SD

Only think I have found to work: dish soap and water. Wipe her down, and immediately dry. I find wasting paper towels is the most effective method.

Good luck!

This. Buff on, wipe off WITH the grain. They make wipes too, like armor all wipes or Clorox wipes, specifically for stainless. Two will clean our dishwasher, microwave, double oven, and fridge.

We've used Yacht Brite Serious Shine for ours. Spray, buff off. I also use it on the stainless and aluminum on the boat. As an added bonus, now I can buy it for "the house", not "the boat", which makes it an easier sell with my wife.

I use "method" stainless steel cleaner and use their "shammy" Cost is like $18 for both, but I have had them for 3 years. I would definitely recommend them.

Wow, stainless can be scratched by paper towels? You don't say.

I should also mention, I just looked at my refrigerator (ok I purchased it back in November, but it gets cleaned weekly). No scratches.

Sears sells a stainless polish that's easy to use. Ask in the appliance department.

I've used that Weiman brand's granite wipes, but never tried the stainless ones.

Microfiber cloth with even windex works fine to clean, but follow up with an aerosol product called twinkle. My buddy gave me a few cans from his shop and it is amazing. It is also a cleaner but I use it sparingly just as a polish, again with a clean microfiber cloth.

Paper towels won't scratch it (duh). But you may get "fuzz" from them on the stainless. I use 303 sparingly on my ice machine. (Stainless cabinet). Even pledge works. But use a cloth!
