Have you used olive oil to shine your stainless steel? This morning I went on the search for a natural way to clean the stainless steel in my kitchen. I don’t typically get this urge on Monday mornings, (or any morning for that matter) but when you have the slight motivation to do something like, shine and buff your stainless steel – you seize the moment. There’s no telling when that urge will come back – if ever.
So as my boys played in the next room, I did a simple search online and found all these resources that mentioned olive oil. Olive oil? I have olive oil. Maybe it was the fact it’s Earth Day, or maybe it’s because I felt the need to clean my stainless steel and wanted to make it at least interesting – I grabbed my big bottle of Bertolli and went in.
How to clean your stainless steel with olive oil.
1. Wipe down your stainless steel appliance with a damp cloth. (The olive oil is amazing at shining but it doesn’t get rid of the milk crusty-s very well.) Let dry.
2. Add a couple of teaspoons of olive oil to a microfiber cloth.
3. Clean/shine the stainless steel in a circular motion using the olive oil soaked cloth. It takes a little elbow grease. Add more olive oil to the cloth as needed.
4. Buff with a dry micofiber cloth in the direction of the grain.
And there you have it. It was amazing how shiny the stainless steel looked. I’m impressed and will be using it again, since my big bottle of olive oil is always there.
Here’s a few more befores and afters. As you can see, the urge to clean my stainless steel has not happened in awhile. 😉

Good post. I definiktely appreciate thiss website.
Stick with it!
This is my favorite way to clean stainless steel, well, make it shine anyway. It’s so easy and I always have oil on hand. I’ve found that it does get little fingerprints off. I kinda like the little fingerprints though. 😉
