Picture this: a kitchen that is cleaned top to bottom, ready for company. The floors are shining, the table is set for dinner, the Christmas lights on the tree are turned on, the holiday music is playing on the radio…. you walk over to the refrigerator to get a drink and what do you see? Smudges. (Little handprints are cute on the refigerator when they are on the kid’s ART WORK, not when they are left directly on the refrigerator!)
No matter how clean my kitchen is, our stainless steel always has smudges or streaks on it. I can clean it with a cleaner, but the streakiness seems to stay and within an hour, it looks messy again anyways. I know that I can’t have a perfectly clean house with six of us living here (and all of them being seven or younger), but I can have it clean for an hour, can’t I? (Don’t answer that! haha!)
Keeping a house clean is especially hard during the holidays, but I just love this time of year! I love seeing our kids enjoying themselves and get so excited to see our family! (Our son just asked me tonight: “Can Uncle Tim track Santa again this year? Remember last year when we watched Santa on the map and we knew where he was? Remember, Mom? At dinner last year?” I love that they have special memories of Christmas, but watching their Mom frantically clean is NOT one of them! I heard a story once about my friend that didn’t like Christmas because she remembers her Mom just being very frazzled and stressed the whole time. I don’t want that, so I try to keep things as easy as I can (“Enter… Steel Meister.”)
During the holidays in our house, we always have company. We always have family visiting and I want the house to stay clean for their visit (no one wants to come to a messy house). My husband’s family comes down to stay for a few days, my parents come over, my brother and his family visit, my aunt, uncle & counsin drive down… plus, I usually have a small Christmas party for several of our friends. Trying to keep our appliances clean has always been hard work… and no one wants a stressed out hostess (one that is thinking about how clean her kitchen looks!)
I have FINALLY found something that works! Its called Steel Meister. You can buy it at Home Depot in the appliance section. The best way to describe it is that it cleans your appliances and keeps them clean, sort of like waxing a car. (Even the directions tell you to apply it like you apply wax to a car.) Plus, you can use it just about anywhere: on copper, chrome, aluminum, fiberglass, kitchen appliances, outdoor grills, automotive trim or bathroom fixtures.
Here is a before & after of our microwave:

Now that I’ve used it, I won’t go back to using anything else. I tried to use chemical free cleaners, but I felt like I was cleaning over and over because it just didn’t last. I made my own little test. I cleaned our kitchen refrigerator wtih Steel Meister and I cleaned our dishwasher with our old cleaner and the Steel Meister lasted DAYS longer. I have had to re-clean our dishwasher three times so far, because it lacks the protective coating (and they both get the same amount of use, I’d say.)
Oh- my TIP: use a microfiber rag or an old burp rags to clean it. (& lay a towel on the floor before you spray it because it can make your floors slippery if you don’t do this)
I wanted to include the reviews of Steel Meister for you, before you decide to buy it: Here they are: Steel Meister reviews
