As you may have seen in the recent reveal of our kitchen there is quite a lot of stainless steel in our kitchen. It gives a modern edge to a room but can be a real pain to wipe clean with most things leaving a smear on the surface – not very attractive!
Luckily, there is an unexpected cleaner that is really effective for removing smears from surfaces – baby oil (you might have cottoned onto that already from the image above)! When somebody first shared this tip with me I thought it sounded ridiculous, but for some reason unbeknownst to me baby oil cleaner really does work.
I use a little bit of baby oil on a clean cloth and buff in a circular motion to remove smears. I’ve also used this method with glass before, but used 2 cloths – one for applying the oil and one for buffing. Apologies for the rubbish image below but hopefully it gives you an idea of the kind of shine you can achieve using this method!
Do let me know if you’ve ever tried this before? Do you have any other weird and wonderful household tips that make your life a little easier?
