How To Clean Stainless Steel With Lemon Juice


Here's a super easy kitchen trick for you! If you've been struggling with a way to get a stainless steel fridge clean (or to clean any stainless steel in your kitchen), try this out:


  • Juice from 2 lemons
  • 4-5 tbsp hot water


  1. Mix together hot water and lemon juice in a small bowl
  2. Using a soft cloth, wipe fridge down with lemon juice and water mixture going along with the grain of the stainless steel
  3. Then wipe down again with a dry paper towel
  4. You're done!

When you're all finished up use the leftover lemon along with some ice to freshen your garbage disposal or even remove stains from stainless steel in the sinkI've tried cleaning my stainless steel fridge with olive oil (I love it for shining the kitchen sink), but for whatever reason the oil bothers me on the fridge. So, this is a great way to easily freshen things up without using any chemicals ~ easy!
