    I have not tried this --but at Home depot --they told me to use pledge to keep spots and prints off from the stainless steel appliances.
    You could try it and see if it works.

    The answer is that not all stainless is the same. There are different types and grades. Good stainless ( 304 or 316 stainless) has a high nickel content and a magnet will not stick... Lower type stainless ( 400 series) has a higher level of different metals and magnets will stick. Its the nickel content that makes stainless not rust or corrode. I deal will all different types of stainless all day.. this is one of the most common misconceptions .. that if it says stainless it won't rust.... so not true. Another is that you can wash stainless with just about anything.. also not true... bleach will over time corrode or pit even high quality stainless.

    Wow! I cannot tolerate the smell of WD40 and, to me at least, it lingers forever. My dh used it on a squeaking deck chair and I could smell it for weeks!

    I was told the same thing, Jeanne. They said windex would take the protective coating off the fridge. I called the manufacturer (Samsung) because I thought the sales guy was just giving me a load of bunk, and Samsung confirmed it for the same reason.

    Smudges, prints etc......that is exactly why I won't buy s.s., although beautiful I just can't stand smudges.
    White is my choice and classic. So I am sorry I can't offer any suggestions.
