The SECRET to clean stainless steel

Fingerprints. Smudges. Food smears. Streaks. They get all over my dishwasher. That's life with stainless steel in the kitchen. Whatever mess you've got going on with your hands, it's bound to end up all around the handles and edges, marking up your beautiful appliances. I've tried it all in the past; various cleaning products from the hardware store, wipes, sprays, even homemade concoctions involving baking soda and lemon juice and whatever else Pinterest suggested. Nothing worked. I started to wonder if stainless steel was a bit of a misnomer. But then something came in the mail that changed all that.

I swear to you I'm not being paid to write about this. It's just SO GOOD.

After getting my lovely new dishwasher from KitchenAid Canada, I was sent a dishwasher care package in the mail. Inside the big basket were some stainless steel cleaning wipes as well as a spray and cleaning tabs to bring a sparkle to even the inside of my fancy machine. I was skeptical at first. But the package said KitchenAid recommends this stuff. Hmm, I thought, okay let's give it a go.

Oh my WORD!

It's sooo good. Like, we're talking miracle cleaner here. The smudges and streaks and smears were gone. Completely. All those homemade pastes I'd tried and perfectly good lemons wasted, and now I finally know how to keep my stainless steel clean.  

So, what is this big secret?


I love it. It is incredibly effective. And now I want you to have some too. So the company has agreed to give one of my readers:
