How To Clean Stainless Steel Splashbacks
Our stainless steel kitchen splashbacks are a stylish and practical alternative to tiling. These are a popular option for the area behind your hob but it is very important to ensure you clean stainless steel splashbacks properly to prevent a build-up of grease from cooking. There are a number of products available, but we prefer to use a kinder, more natural method for our solid oak cabinets and wooden worktops. This guide provides some store cupboard remedies for keeping your stainless steel splashback clean and streak free.
You Will Need:
Empty spray bottle
Lint free cloth or paper towels
1. Pour some of the vinegar into the empty spray bottle for easy distribution and spray liberally over the splashback.
2. Wipe with your cloth or paper towels in the direction of the grain to clean. This will remove any dirt and the splashback should start to become glossy.
3. Use a very small amount of olive oil and use the lint free cloth or paper towels to rub it along the clean stainless steel splashback to make it shine. If the surface begins to feel sticky or oily, too much oil has been applied!
For dried on food or more stubborn stains, a mixture of bicarbonate of soda and water can be used to clean stainless steel splashbacks. Simply make a paste with the bicarbonate of soda and water and apply to the areas that need cleaning. Leave for 30 minutes, wipe clean with a damp cloth and wipe dry to prevent water marks from remaining.
