Full Answer

Begin cleaning a stainless steel backsplash by squirting an adequate quantity of baby oil on a piece of cloth that is lint free. Ensure that the cloth gets dampened with the baby oil.

Use this damp cloth to wipe the surface of the backsplash. Use buffing and rubbing movements in a circular direction over the entire backsplash area to clean without causing any streaks on the stainless steel surface. Continue wiping until the backsplash is thoroughly cleaned.

Apply the mild detergent in a similar manner, particularly on residues that cannot be removed with the baby oil. Dilute the detergent in water before applying.

Then, wipe the backsplash with a dry and clean cloth that is lint-free. Use the same buffing movement when wiping to bring back the original shine of the stainless steel surface.

If the stainless steel surface has fingerprints on it, spray a glass cleaner on the surface, and wipe dry using a clean piece of cloth.

Also, clean the backsplash after every use, using a clean piece of cloth. Clean water splashed on the surface as quickly as possible to prevent formation of water spots.
